You can't bring back someone you've lost, but if your loved one has died because of someone else's intentional or negligent actions, you may be entitled to recover damages. Wrongful death suits include car accidents, medical malpractice, and criminal activity. You may be able to recover for financial losses and emotional suffering, but you need the help of an attorney with experience representing plaintiffs in wrongful death suits.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
