Wrongful Death Attorneys Lake Oswego
To lose a family member or loved one is the worst tragedy a person can go through. Moreover, if that death was caused by the reckless or negligent acts of another person, the sadness and confusion can be life-altering. Losing a loved one is difficult enough, without the circumstances of their death being completely preventable.
During this time, you could be facing a pile of medical bills, a dramatic decrease in household income, and more stress than you can bear. The thought of bringing legal action against the person or persons responsible for your loss is probably the furthest thing from your thoughts.
However, it is important to know that holding the at-fault party financially and legally accountable for their actions could make it that much easier to put the pieces back together.
While your loss can never be made whole, the person who caused this life-altering tragedy should certainly answer for their actions. At Shlesinger & deVilleneuve we are dedicated to making sure that that happens.
Our firm has managed wrongful death cases for more than 40 years, and we know how delicate these matters can be. We are passionate about making sure that our clients are treated with the utmost respect, and that we always fight with your best interests at heart.
When the careless actions of another person or organization lead to loss of life, a wrongful death action may be filed. Often, a wrongful death claim is brought on by an injury of some sort, including;
- Premises liability: faulty or unsafe products that cause instant death or severe injuries which ultimately lead to death
- Vehicle accidents: severe injuries that ultimately result in death, or immediate death that is caused by a type of vehicular incident
- Medical Malpractice: disability and/or ailment that leads to death, or immediate death that is the fault of a medical practitioner
Each one of these circumstances can lead to a completely life-shattering event and, the team at Shlesinger & deVilleneuve has more than four decades of experience dealing with all of them.
