Finding a lawyer to help you determine if you have a case is something you must do sooner rather than later. Our wrongful death attorney firm was successful in settling a wrongful death case brought by the surviving spouse and two adult children of a fifty-year-old man who was treated for several months by a physician employed by a local HMO.

Our wrongful death lawyer found that despite continuous complaints of extreme abdominal pain which prevented the victim from working or even driving an automobile, the treating doctor failed to perform reasonably necessary diagnostic studies or admit him to the hospital for observation. Because of the failure on the part of the HMO to properly diagnose and treat the patient, he died because of a total lack of blood flow to his abdominal area.

Our firm filed a wrongful death suit alleging that, in addition to their negligent treatment, the physician's and HMO's failure to provide appropriate treatment was driven by the HMO putting profits before patients. Because the HMO was paid a fixed monthly premium for each patient, the more studies performed by the HMO and the more treatment it rendered to a given patient, the less profit it made.

Settled prior to trial for $1,400,000.


Our firm filed suit on behalf of a surviving mother against the company that operated the group home where her children were staying. She alleged negligence in the operation of the home by failing to comply with certain state regulations pertaining to the operation of foster homes including but not limited to the requirement that there be two employees present at the home.

In this tragic case, her two children died in a fire at the group home because of these violations. After numerous depositions, the firm negotiated a structured settlement for the benefit of the mother having a value in excess of $600,000.



Catastrophic injuries may leave a victim with a life-long disability that impacts nearly every aspect of their lives. Wrongful death, which is often defined as "the negligent or willful act of another person that results in loss of life," leaves family members struggling to cope with horrific personal losses. In either case, catastrophic injury or wrongful death, those who have been impacted should know that there are answers to be found and legal options to be had.
