Massachusetts Wrongful Death

Your Source for Legal Assistance in Wrongful Death Actions throughout Massachusetts

If you’ve lost a loved one because of another’s wrongful act, we can help you recover

Losing a member of your family or a loved one is difficult at any time, but even more so when the loss could have been prevented. Following tragic incidents caused by negligence — or even an intentional act, such as a fight — you may be entitled to collect compensation for your loss. As your representatives in an accidental death case, the accident attorneys of Feinberg & Alban PC understand that—while no amount of compensation can truly make up for the loss of your loved one—you have the right to demand accountability from those responsible. We are committed to protecting the rights of our clients as they seek justice.

What is wrongful death?

Wrongful death — also known as accidental death — typically occurs when an individual loses his or her life due to the negligent action or inaction of another. Numerous types of personal injuries and accidents could result in wrongful death:

According to a 2020 survey reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC), unintentional injury is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. Moreover, the majority of these injuries occur in motor vehicle accidents, which are often a result of negligence. Statewide, unintentional injury is the leading cause of death overall in Massachusetts.

Can you recover for the loss?

At Feinberg & Alban PC, we provide information and consultations free of charge. However, according to Massachusetts practice, a representative of the decedent (the person who passed away) is usually an immediate family member. This includes his or her spouse, partner, biological or adopted children, biological or adoptive parents and estate executor. With the help of a wrongful death attorney in Boston, family members may seek compensation for the following losses associated with wrongful death:

  • Reasonably expected net income that the deceased would have provided his or her beneficiaries
  • Loss of other services, protection, care, assistance, society, companionship, comfort, guidance, counsel, and advice
  • Coverage of funeral and burial expenses
  • Punitive damages (in certain cases of malicious or reckless conduct/gross negligence)
