Burlington Wrongful Death Lawyers

The damages in a wrongful death lawsuit are not a measure of the value of the person. Rather, the proceeds reflect the tangle losses of the survivors, both economic and personal.

At Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., we know that no amount of money can make up for the loss of your loved one. Our mission is to spare clients from legal worries while they attend to grieving the person and rebuilding their lives. We work behind the scenes to build a case that holds the negligent parties for our clients' hardships and suffering.

Compensation For A Preventable Tragedy

Our experienced lawyers have recovered wrongful death compensation in a wide range of cases, including fatal traffic accidents, fires, falls and industrial accidents. We act swiftly to preserve evidence that may be important later in negotiations or at trial.

While we are building the case for liability, we work with family members and various professionals to build the case for wrongful death damages. That compensation reflects the person's expected contributions over a lifetime, and other statutory damages, including:

  • Hospital bills incurred before the person succumbed
  • Loss of the person's projected earnings
  • Loss of consortium, companionship, love and support
  • Loss of the person's household services
  • Conscious pain and suffering as the person was dying
