Wrongful Death


 

Accidents can happen anywhere at any time. Sadly, these accidents can be the result of simple negligence by a party or parties. When this negligence results in a person’s death, a family is suddenly forced to deal with the tragic loss of a loved one.

 

When a death occurs due to negligence, the person(s) at fault can be held responsible by law. Have you lost a loved one to what you believe to be an act of negligence? As you cope with this difficult time, it’s also important you know your rights. The family of a victim (close family members such as spouse or parents) can file a wrongful death claim in the state of Massachusetts. By doing so, you’ll be eligible to receive financial compensation to cover damages and help protect your family from the risk of financial suffering.

 

No price can be placed on losing a family member. However, the Law Office of Frank Fernandez can ensure the person(s) at fault are held financially liable for not acting responsibly.

 

Attorney Frank Fernandez has been involved with major litigation matters leading to multimillion dollar settlements. He was part of a litigation team that successfully settled a wrongful death claim against some of the biggest construction companies in Massachusetts related to a 2006 tunnel collapse which killed a woman who was a passenger in a vehicle. The matter received national attention since it involved the big dig project and a structural failure in the ceilings of the tunnels. This complex litigation ended with a 28 Million dollar settlement on behalf of the clients.

 

Negligence can occur in a limitless variety of scenarios, and in some instances, wrongful death. These include auto accidents, workplace accidents, health practice or hospital care malpractice, nursing home accidents, unexpected reaction/side effects to prescription drugs, construction accidents, defective products, a property owner’s failure to secure the grounds, poor public grounds maintenance and many more.

 

Wrongful death can also result from catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, paralysis, back, neck and spinal cord injuries, amputation, burns and more. Any of these involve complicated and expert diagnosis and treatment. The Law Office of Frank Fernandez has extensive experience in handling these types of cases. It is vital for you, the plaintiff in a claim, to know which types of evidence to pursue in these specialty circumstances. We can help ensure you receive proper compensation when you’ve lost a loved one due to any of the aforementioned circumstances.

 

If your family member passed away due to negligence, you have the opportunity to collect damages provided you can present sufficient proof that someone had acted negligently, resulting in the death.

 

Damages include financial support which would’ve been provided via the victim’s income. The at-fault party(ies) can be held liable for this lost income. Damages also can include loss of companionship: again, no price can be placed on the loss of a loved one, but your financial stability should be the least of your worries. In a wrongful death claim, you’ll also be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills incurred because of the accident and funeral costs. Punitive damages may also apply which are damages assessed to the responsible party in an amount which will make them pay for their mistake and want to avoid it in the future. Punitive damages can be very large when dealing with a large corporation since a smaller amount will not be taken seriously.

 

Because a life has been lost, the damages are typically much higher as compared to those in a simple personal injury claim. It’s important you know your rights and don’t bear the burden in any way because of someone else’s irresponsibility. The Law Office of Frank Fernandez helps families in the state of Massachusetts properly file wrongful death claims. If you think your loved one passed away due to an act of negligence, contact us immediately for a free consultation.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
