IF YOUR FAMILY HAS LOST A LOVED ONE DUE TO NEGLIGENCE, YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM ON BEHALF OF YOUR LOVED ONE. UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES, A DOMESTIC LIFE PARTNER MAY ALSO BE ELIGIBLE TO FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH ACTION ON BEHALF OF A LOVED ONE.
When it happens, the devastation of such a sudden and unexpected loss is overwhelming. Survivors of victims of wrongful death are entitled to recover money for their pain and suffering, loss of support and services, lost wages, medical expenses and funeral expenses.
Wrongful death cases are among the most difficult of lawsuits because they involve the most tragic of events that cause the most harm to the survivors left behind. For this reason, it is important that you hire a lawyer that is experienced, compassionate, dedicated, and will fight for your family as if they are fighting for themselves

Mr. Wites accepted my case when other lawyers would not. He never promised what he couldn’t deliver. He was realistic, upfront and honest. He actually returns phone calls. And he is willing to explain the legal process and to take time to answer questions. I would definitely contact Mr. Wites if I ever needed a lawyer again.Karla
We handle wrongful death claims arising from car crashes, truck crashes, motorcycle crashes, bicycle crashes, pedestrian events, food poisoning, contaminated food products, defective products and medical malpractice.
No. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not have to pay us any attorney’s fees or costs unless we obtain a recovery for you.
Yes. At the Wites Law Firm we do not just settle cases. If we cannot obtain a fair and reasonable settlement for you without filing a lawsuit, we will file a lawsuit for you and your family. We will fight your case in court for as long as necessary to obtain the justice that you deserve. If your case goes to trial we will try your case; we will not refer you or your case to another law firm to file a lawsuit or to go to trial.

The Wrongful Death Act also sets forth the types of damages that each survivor may recover. For example, a surviving spouse may recover damages for mental pain and suffering, loss of support and services, medical and funeral expenses, and the present value of the deceased’s future earnings (which is often referred to as “net accumulations”). All survivors may recover damages for loss of support and services. This can include monetary support and services (such as a household task) that the survivors will have to pay for in the future as a result of the deceased’s death. A minor child (which is defined by the Act as someone under the age of 25) can recover damages for lost parental companionship, instruction and guidance (which is similar to pain and suffering), but an adult child (i.e., someone over the age of 25) can only recover such damages if the deceased does not have a surviving spouse. Child survivors of all ages can recover loss of support and services. The deceased’s estate can also recover damages such as medical and funeral expenses.
