At Mercado & Rengel we represent clients in many types of wrongful death claims. How a wrongful death claim is commenced varies by state. In Massachusetts, for example, an action for Wrongful Death may be started by the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate on behalf of the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the victim. If the deceased does not have any living parents, children, or spouse, the victim’s siblings or cousins may then recover funds from the lawsuit through the victim’s estate. The losses need not solely be economic in nature.

MA Accident Wrongful Death Attorneys
An action for wrongful death may be brought for either an intentional or unintentional act that causes an injury that results in death. A blow to the head during an altercation that later results in death is an injury that is intentionally caused. The driver of an automobile who unintentionally causes the death of another in an accident may be held liable for negligence. An individual who, in violation of local law, neglects to enclose a swimming pool in his yard can be held liable for the omission or failure to act if a child is attracted to the pool and subsequently drowns.
