Nothing is more devastating or traumatic than losing someone you love in an accident that could have been prevented. If your loved one was killed due to another person’s negligent, reckless, or careless actions, you have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

A well-practiced attorney can review your case to inform you of your legal rights, advise you of your best options, and help you take the appropriate steps to file a successful claim.

Michigan’s’ wrongful death laws state that a person or entity whose negligence leads to the accidental death of another person can be sued for damages. There are a variety of circumstances that could possibly lead to a wrongful death accident, including:
