Worcester Wrongful Death Lawyer

Protecting Families in Wrongful Death Cases

Worcester wrongful death lawyer Peter Ventura works with the surviving families of fatal accident victims in central Massachusetts and Metro West. His objective is to help protect the future financial security of the family through wrongful death litigation while offering practical support through a difficult time of transition. Massachusetts law offers some justice in those cases when a death could have been avoided if only those involved would have behaved appropriately.

The Focus of Wrongful Death Cases

No amount of money can replace the loss of loved one, so the intention of a wrongful death lawsuit is to provide monetary relief for those who were impacted by the death.  Based on the facts of the case, the benefits may be received by the Estate and the beneficiaries.

Worcester Wrongful Death AttorneysWho Can File a Case?

Massachusetts law outlines strict rules about who can file a wrongful death case; the only person who can file is the person who is acting as the legal representative of the individual who died. Generally speaking, it is usually the children or spouse of the deceased, but for an unmarried person, the next of kin is the alternative option.

Personalized Counsel Tailored to Specific Family Needs

Wrongful death litigation is guided by Massachusetts statute, and the specific rights and elements of damage that will be recognized will often be affected by the relationship between the plaintiff and the victim. Parents of adult children without children of their own, minor children who lost a parent or spouses who lost a husband or wife will have different kinds of damages claims that we can explain in your free case evaluation.
