Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Lawyers

Plymouth, Taunton and Bridgewater wrongful death attorneys helping your family through a difficult time

You and your family have the right to recover for the loss of a loved one that resulted from another person’s or corporation’s negligence. A wrongful death claim can arise from an auto accident, a trucking accident, a motorcycle accident, premises liability, a trip and fall, a dog attack or any other intentional or unintentional act that resulted in your loved one’s death. Our Taunton wrongful death lawyers at the Studley Law Offices know you are mourning and act with compassion to ease the stress on your family.

During our 38 years of combined experience, we have helped numerous families obtain justice and recover damages — including a recent wrongful death verdict for $1.2 million. In 2005, our Taunton wrongful death lawyer John E. Studley Jr. secured the 12th largest jury verdict in the state of Massachusetts. We are available to assist you in holding the negligent parties accountable for your loved one’s death.

Wrongful death damages

The death of your loved one may cause significant financial burden on your family in addition to your emotional suffering. Our wrongful death lawyers in Taunton pursue the maximum available compensation to help your family regain your financial well-being. You may be entitled to damages that include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income from the date the accident occurred
  • Reasonable expected net income
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Personal injury claim of the deceased
  • Punitive damages

Loss of companionship

Unlike medical bills and lost wages, loss of companionship is an intangible damage that places a monetary figure on your valuable relationship. Whether you have lost a spouse, a child or a parent, you may find it impossible to express the level of grief you have suffered. Our wrongful death lawyers in Plymouth compassionately and skillfully demonstrate the immeasurable role your loved one played in your family.
