Wrongful Death

The unexpected and untimely loss of a loved one is devastating. It is particularly tragic when their death is a result of someone else’s negligent, reckless or intentional act.

If you have lost a family member because of someone else’s conduct, you may be entitled to recover damages. Arizona law allows a civil action to be brought against the person or corporation whose wrongful act, neglect or default caused a death (A.R.S. § 12-611). The legal remedy for wrongful death may include compensation for funeral expenses, the deceased person’s lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of care, companionship and guidance.

You should not have to navigate this process alone. The team at AWD LAW® cares about you and your loss, and we will ensure that you receive the maximum recovery to which you are legally entitled.
