Indianapolis Wrongful Death Lawyers
Experienced Trial Attorneys in Indiana Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is the technical term under state law for the civil liability of a defendant for the accidental or intentional death of an individual. Most wrongful death cases involve negligence, as in a fatal accident or an episode of medical malpractice, but homicide can also support a claim for wrongful death damages. No matter how the victim's death occurred, wrongful death cases present enormous strains for the victim's family and unique challenges for the lawyers.
