Heinlein, Beeler, Mingace & Heineman, P.C., (HBMHLaw) serves clients from Framingham, and surrounding communities, who have suffered the wrongful death of a family member. The death of a loved one can be due to many different causes that warrant review by experienced counsel. For example, death can occur due to car and truck crashes or accidents, medical malpractice, construction site falls, crush injuries, OSHA violations or other safety failures, nursing home abuse and neglect, defective products, defects in property and drunk driving. Dealing with the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one is bad enough, but oftentimes such incidents are coupled with significant pain and suffering, invasive medical procedures and associated medical expenses and a loss of financial support.
Wrongful death claims can be complicated. Often, only certain court-appointed representatives can obtain necessary records and bring a lawsuit. HBMHLaw can arrange to have an appropriate representative appointed. In addition, the wrongful death statute addresses claims for pre-death conscious pain and suffering and the harms and losses caused by the death itself. Certain wrongful death cases present the opportunity to recover punitive damages. Accordingly, such claims must be carefully reviewed and pursued such that appropriate claims can be advanced for conscious pain and suffering, lost earning capacity and support, recovery of medical expenses, the loss of the value of the care, comfort and companionship of the deceased to the next of kin and punitive damages, where appropriate. The loss of a loved one is often accompanied with confusing probate paperwork and life insurance claim problems. HBMHLaw can provide guidance and assistance with these probate and insurance issues.
