A head-on collision, caused by a negligent driver, took the life of your family member. And now your loved one is no longer in your life because someone was talking on a cell phone, daydreaming or driving drunk. We hold wrong-doers accountable.
By initiating a wrongful death lawsuit, you can hold the negligent driver accountable. In Wisconsin, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit if you are the spouse or next of kin – which under Wisconsin law includes the following: child (including an adult child), parent, domestic partner or guardian.
A specific Wisconsin law (Wisconsin Statutes, section 895.04) gives family members the right to sue for compensation. This statute establishes a legal process that must be followed to file a wrongful death suit in Wisconsin.
