Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is often the result of gross negligence or reckless indifference on the part of auto drivers, manufacturers, employers, and healthcare providers. Barrett & Pavluk, LLC represents survivors of those killed through the gross negligence of others. Since many wrongful death cases involve the loss of a wage earner, a parent, a spouse, a brother or sister, our attorneys quantify your loss by working with experienced economists who consider loss of consortium, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. In cases where those responsible deny culpability, our lawyers hire experts from every relevant field to analyze and investigate the causes of a fatal accident. Our office acts immediately to preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and determine what happened and why.
