Our wrongful-death attorneys in Las Vegas, Reno, and surrounding areas are expert at supporting clients through tragedies, by facilitating and filing wrongful death claims.
Wrongful death claims exist to protect the rights and well-being of a victim’s family.
A wrongful death claim can be filed when the death of a person was caused directly by the negligence of another—for example, in a car accident, medical malpractice, or a situation involving premises liability.
In all wrongful death cases, the claimant must be able to prove negligence beyond a reasonable doubt. This is not always easy, but the experienced wrongful death attorneys at Shook & Stone have more than 85 years of combined experience in these cases.
According to Nevada law, heirs and personal representatives of the deceased may pursue legal actions to recover compensation from the party responsible for the victim’s death.
