Death By Fatal Car Accident ∙ Construction Site Accidents ∙ Drunk Driving

Wrongful death suits are challenging, from both the emotional and the legal perspectives. Our goal at Maggio Law Firm, PC, is to represent your family's legal interests aggressively, while helping you deal with the loss of your loved one.

We seek maximum compensation to put closure on the death of a breadwinner, spouse or a beloved child. Seeking compensation is important for several reasons, such as:

  • Under workers' compensation, this money pays for medical treatment prior to the death and compensates survivors for loss of family income into the future.
  • In tort cases like a motor vehicle accident, compensation may include pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. We handle auto accident cases involving car crashes and accidents involving commercial vehicles and 18-wheelers.
  • In cases where the death was the result of extremely careless behavior, like driving drunk or in excess of posted speed limits, we may seek punitive damages, to discourage recurrence.
  • We also pursue wrongful death claims when seamen, deckhands or shipyard workers are killed on the job, under The Jones Act.

If you lost a loved one because of another person's negligent actions, you are entitled to seek compensation for your suffering. Learn more about how to pursue a wrongful death action by scheduling an appointment at our law firm today.
