Wrongful Death
You’ve suffered the loss of a family member or loved one through the fault or negligence of somebody else. You are entitled to get legal help in search of full and fair compensation.
Why You Need a Wrongful Death Lawyer
Raipher, PC’s attorneys are strong advocates for people who have suffered the loss of a loved one because of the negligence of another. Wrongful death cases can be difficult, especially in Massachusetts where the law often favors defendants. Our lawyers know how to navigate the complexities of wrongful death cases in search of full and fair compensation for a client’s losses.

Our wrongful death lawyers do not believe that money can fully compensate clients for the terrible losses they have suffered. However, not needing to worry about money is a great help to people who wonder how to pay the bills, take care of the children or move forward after the death of a loved one. We are pleased that we can help people during dark times in their lives.

Examples of Our Wrongful Death Cases
We help people whose loved ones died in:

  • Car accidents
  • Tractor-trailer accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Aviation and mass transit accidents
  • Medical malpractice and pharmacology accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Defective product accidents

Whatever type of deadly accident caused the fatality, it is important to act quickly to begin the process of recovering compensation. Every state limits the amount of time available to begin wrongful death actions. So make sure to take the first step & learn about how to build a winning case with a free consultation.

Compensation After a Wrongful Death
Depending on the circumstances and the state where the accident occurred, the families of wrongful death victims may be able to obtain compensation for funeral expenses, lost income, loss of support, and consortium and punitive damages. In addition, if the decedent lived for any time after the accident, plaintiffs may be able to obtain compensation for the loved one’s pain and suffering before death. Our lawyers advise prospective clients about the types of compensation that may be available.
