Massachusetts Wrongful Death Lawyers

What is Considered a Wrongful Death?

According to Mass. Gen. Laws Ann. ch. 229, § 2, a wrongful death is a death caused by negligence, a "willful, wanton, or reckless act," or breach of warranty. Wrongful death often results from the negligence or reckless indifference of auto drivers, manufacturers, employers, doctors, and property owners. Typically, those responsible have insurance policies in place and/or substantial assets to attach and seize. It takes a determined, experienced lawyer to locate and seize assets such as real estate, bank accounts and motor vehicles; we know how to get that job done. We also have substantial experience and success in aggressively going after insurance companies, whether theirs or that of the deceased. Insurance companies are never to be trusted; their goal is always to pay out the least amount possible, regardless of who is hurt and why. This is why you need the law team at Percy Law Group, PC, on your side.
