Step-By-Step Guidance Through All Stages Of The Process

In Delaware, a "personal representative" is required to file the wrongful death claim. Our lawyers will guide you through the process of appointing a personal representative.

We can then help you pursue a two-pronged approach toward a wrongful death claim, covering all available grounds for obtaining compensation. For example, you can likely pursue recovery for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost future wages
  • Medical expenses prior to death
  • Loss of companionship

You may also be able to recover damages for the pain and suffering of your loved one. We will work with experts in various fields to build a strong foundation of evidence in your favor.
