Ann Arbor Wrongful Death Lawsuit Lawyers

Our Ann Arbor wrongful death attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent family members who have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another or were tragically killed in an Ann Arbor accident.  We also pursue wrongful death claims for medical malpractice and nursing home neglect against Ann Arbor hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical care facilities.  By definition, a wrongful death is when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another party.

Our attorneys handle Ann Arbor area wrongful death cases that result from a variety of negligence including:

  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Hospital malpractice
  • Nursing Home Negligence
  • Pedestrian Accidents, such as being hit by car
  • Bicycle Accident
  • Boating Accident
  • Fall injuries
  • All other types of personal injury accident matters

These types of cases are controlled by the Michigan Wrongful Death Act.   This Act determines which family members are entitled to file the lawsuit, the procedure for notifying other family members that a case has been filed and their legal rights, the types of damages and compensation that can be sought, and more. Often times, these lawsuits result in significant settlements for the surviving family members.  Damages may include loss of earnings, loss of services, loss of society and companionship, and other types of damages.

While no amount of financial payment can ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, being financially secure in your future and the comfort of responsible parties being brought to justice can provide a sense of closure and security to survivors. During your grieving period, consideration of a wrongful death lawsuit may not seem urgent, however, these must be filed within a specific time period or you risk losing your right to financial compensation and your case may be barred forever.
