At The Lietz Law Firm, a carefully managed caseload ensures that each and every client receives the full and undivided focus of all of our resources and attention.

Wrongful Death

The tragic death of a loved one can never be fully compensated. If the death was the result of another company or entity’s negligence, you may understandably want to pursue those responsible for damages related to your loss. A wrongful death can occur as the result of a transportation accident or aviation accident, an unsafe premises, an industrial accident, a fire or explosion or other circumstances involving serious misconduct.

The Lietz Law Firm strives to provide a preeminent level of service and representation as you face this hardship. We treat every client with personal attention and compassion as we work for justice for you and your family member. Our experience handling wrongful death cases provides a real benefit to our clients – we know how critical it is that all aspects of the accident be thoroughly investigated in a timely matter. State law often places a statute of limitation on wrongful death lawsuits, so it is important that we aggressively and efficiently pursue your case. David Lietz frequently handles cases involving large companies and is prepared to take on opponents of any size when fighting for just compensation.

Too often, companies and organizations are not held accountable for negligent actions. They may be able to avoid litigation through their sheer size. Or, they may face inexperienced attorneys who fail to perform due diligence in the discovery and investigation process. However, when those responsible for a tragedy or disaster are made to pay for their misconduct, the safety of the public at large is often enhanced.

You may be able to recover compensation from the company and their insurers due to the loss of material items like financial support as well as non-material items like care, comfort and protection. We may also be able to fight for life saving safety laws to help avoid future tragedies.

As we pursue your wrongful death case, we will keep you fully informed through every step of the process. You should know what actions are being taken and the calculations the go into making decisions that are of such critical importance to your future. When you work with David Lietz, you will have a fierce advocate and compassionate counsel on your side.
