Wrongful Death Lawyers

At Cunningham Law, it’s an unfortunate fact but we do have a lot of experience handling wrongful death lawsuits in Phoenix and throughout Arizona.  Our attorneys and support staff offer sympathetic, compassionate and highly skilled legal counsel.

We know that no amount of money can make up for the wrongful death of a loved one, but we believe that a family should be compensated for the loss of income, love, affection, companionship, care, protection, and guidance that may result from the death of a family member wrongfully caused by someone’s negligence or a defective product.

What is a wrongful death lawsuit?

When a family member or loved one is killed due to negligence or improper conduct on the part of another person, business, organization or other entity, the victim’s spouse, children, beneficiaries or dependents have the right to sue for financial compensation. That legal process is a wrongful death lawsuit.

For a wrongful death claim to have a chance of success, there are generally four essential elements that need to be satisfied.

  1. The victim’s death must be due, in whole or in part, to the conduct of the defendant.
  2. The defendant must be shown to have been negligent or strictly liable for the death.
  3. The victim must be survived by a spouse, children, or parents.
  4. Damages must have resulted from the victim’s death; loss of income, medical bills etc.

Our attorneys have handled wrongful death cases for clients in Maricopa County, Yuma County, Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Scottsdale, Tempe, Casa Grande, Tucson, Flagstaff, Prescott, Peoria and Yuma, in fact throughout Arizona.

What constitutes a wrongful death in Arizona?

Any number of incidents could lead to a wrongful death claim in Arizona. The victim’s death must be due, in whole or in part, to the conduct and negligence of the defendant.

That negligence could arise in a car, motorcycle, or truck accident, even if the victim was a pedestrian or on a bicycle. Defective products, gas explosions or electrical fires and electrocution are some examples where a wrongful death lawsuit may be considered.

In one wrongful death case handled by Cunningham Law, a child was electrocuted and killed after a sailboat mast struck some low hanging utility lines.  We went to jury trial for damages; the verdict is sealed by the Court.
