Wrongful Death in Mobile, Alabama

A death in the family is a heartbreaking event. A death in the family caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness is heartbreaking and difficult to comprehend and deal with. A wrongful death is a legal term that defines a death due to the negligence or recklessness of another.

A wrongful death claim does not seek to punish the individual responsible for the wrongful death, but seeks financial compensation for the family of the deceased for their losses. Financial compensation for a wrongful death is meant to recover damages for funeral and burial expenses, medical and hospital costs, pain and suffering, loss of income and anticipated earnings, loss of inheritance and benefits and loss of companionship.

A wrongful death can result from a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, a surgical error, a defective consumer product, nursing home abuse and neglect, a criminal assault or a construction accident.

The wrongful death attorneys at The Cochran Firm will evaluate your claim and make certain you have the best legal representation possible to ensure a successful and just outcome so you can face the challenges ahead with a secure financial future.

If you have lost a family member to a wrongful death, please contact the Mobile, Alabama area office of The Cochran Firm today to schedule a no cost to your confidential consultation to learn how to proceed with your wrongful death claim.
