Wrongful Death Law

The unnecessary death of a family member is one of the worst events that anyone can experience.  In the context of these uniquely tragic cases, we work closely with families to make sense of the legal and financial aspects of the family’s loss, and to obtain compensation from individuals, companies and insurers who bear responsibility.

J. Whitfield Larrabee is President and founder of the Wrongful Death Attorney Network, a nationwide network of independent attorneys and law firms in 29 states and the District of Columbia. Through the Wrongful Death Attorney Network, we have assisted and advised lawyers and clients from across the United States in pursuing wrongful death cases.

We have focused on helping families to uncover the truth and obtain justice in wrongful death cases since 1989. In helping families in many different areas of wrongful death law, we have learned to how to effectively establish liability, causation and damages in even the most complex cases. Because we have developed key relationships with other lawyers, investigators, medical professionals, forensic consultants and expert witnesses, we are well prepared to promptly initiate litigation. Our extensive experience and resources enable us to effectively prosecute wrongful death cases and obtain favorable outcomes for our clients.

We handle cases involving medical malpractice, automobile and trucking accidents, premises liability, defective vehicles, dangerous drugs, fires and explosions, workplace accidents and general liability. Although we have the capacity to pursue personal injury cases that do not result in death, and we have occasionally done so in the past, as a small firm we choose to limit our focus to cases involving wrongful death.  In doing so, we strive to give our clients more personalized attention and to bring value to them as specialists in wrongful death law.
