Losing a loved one under tragic circumstances is uncharted territory for most people. We have counseled numerous families struggling with the death of a family member. We are sensitive to the grieving process and do our best to preserve evidence and navigate the legal process without causing additional stress or burden to surviving family members. Wrongful death cases require the type of financial resources and legal knowledge that the Law Offices of Barry Pasternack offers, and that many other personal injury law firms lack. Legal action for wrongful death cases belongs to the descendant’s immediate family members, usually a surviving spouse, children or sometimes parents. Wrongful death lawsuits involve the circumstance where the victim was killed by the negligent, reckless or intentional acts of the defendant.
