When a loved one dies, our first instinct is to search for the cause. Learning that their death may be due to negligence can be devastating. At Cadeaux, Taglieri & Notarius, P.C., we understand that losing a family member can have a significant economic and emotional impact on those left behind.
Although each case is different, surviving loved ones may be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of anticipated future earnings by the deceased
- Grief and loss of companionship

Wrongful death cases can arise from any situation where negligent behavior results in someone else’s death, such as:
It is important to note that a wrongful death action is a civil action that is separate from criminal charges. Even if a defendant is acquitted of murder in a criminal trial, the family of the victim may still sue the defendant in civil court for wrongful death.
