Losing a loved one in an unexpected accident is devastating. However, if his or her death resulted from someone else’s negligent behavior, members of the family may be entitled to a financial settlement via wrongful death.
Pursuing legal recourse in the form of a financial settlement will hold the at-fault responsible for their actions and provide security for your family – especially important if the deceased was a primary income earner.

Understanding Wrongful Death Accidents
Wrongful death can occur in a variety of ways. However, the most common causes are as follows:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Car, truck, or motorcycle accident
- Bus accident
- Boating accident
- Pedestrian or bicycle accident
- Defective products
- Nursing home neglect and abuse
If your family member died due to one of these situations, or something similar, the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine could help you evaluate the possibility of pursuing legal action.
Determining the Value of Your Wrongful Death Claim
Our legal team will work with you to document the actual damages associated with your loss and determine a monetary value. The value may potentially include some or all of the following items:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Lost support and services before death
- The projected loss of support and services
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship, consort, protection, and care
The value of your claim will also depend on your relationship to the deceased, their age at the time of death, their (and your) life expectancy, and the nature of the event or accident that led to their passing. We can assist you in determining which types of benefits you may include in your claim.
A Wrongful Death Lawyer Will Fight for You & Your Family
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we understand how important it is to get you and your family the compensation you need – and deserve – for the loss of your loved one.
We will stand by your side and advocate for you, protecting your legal rights and representing you in your wrongful death claim.
We will begin by assembling the necessary documentation for your claim, including details about the accident, photos, police reports, and statements from witnesses. If necessary, we will obtain testimony from doctors, safety experts, or accident reconstruction specialists.
We will also establish liability by demonstrating the legal elements of negligence, as they relate to the accident. To accomplish this, we must prove that the at-fault party had a duty of care to the deceased. We must further show that the at-fault party breached their duty of care, causing the accident that led to your loved one’s death.
Once we submit your claim to the at-fault party or their insurance company, we will push for their claims adjusters and lawyers to begin the negotiation process. At this challenging time, we understand the importance of getting you an equitable settlement as quickly as possible.
However, if the insurance company will not engage in settlement negotiations in good faith, we will stand ready to move forward with a lawsuit. Whatever it takes, we will dedicate our team to getting you the quickest and best possible result for your case.
