The death of a loved one leaves a hole in your family that nothing can fill. At Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP, we know no amount of money will make up for the death of someone close to you.

Wrongful death claims can give families peace of mind, financial security and justice at crucial times. Please contact us if an accident recently took the life of your loved one. Our Cambridge wrongful death attorneys are caring and sympathetic to your situation. Call (617) 391-9001 for your free consultation.

Why You Should Work With Our Cambridge Wrongful Death Lawyer

  • We do not stop at the settlement stage if an insurance company is refusing to offer our client a fair amount. We can go to trial in Middlesex County if that is what it takes to obtain maximum compensation.
  • We are compassionate in our services to clients during wrongful death claims. You will be our priority as a client. Your family’s past and future needs – financial and emotional – will inform all of our strategies and legal maneuvers.
  • We will not charge a cent for wrongful death representation on cases that do not end in financial awards for clients. Our plaintiff’s attorneys in Cambridge operate on a contingency fee basis.

How Can a Wrongful Death Lawyer in Cambridge Help Your Family?

Wrongful death is a complicated area of civil law that typically requires a lawyer’s involvement. A lawyer can assist with legal processes while you and your family grieve. Your Cambridge wrongful death lawyer can take over phone calls with insurance companies and their claims adjusters on your behalf, for instance.

You can also have confidence the award a lawyer wins for you is the maximum amount available, rather than worrying about settling for a lowball offer from an insurance adjuster. An attorney can make the wrongful death claims process easier for you and your family from start to finish.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death in Cambridge

It can be difficult to determine if you have a claim by yourself. You may need a lawyer to assess your case for you. Our attorneys can look over the facts of the fatal accident and let you know if they believe you have grounds for a wrongful death claim. Our lawyers litigate wrongful death claims involving many different types of accidents.

These are some of the most common types of fatal accidents in Cambridge, but this is not a comprehensive list of causes. Our Cambridge wrongful death attorneys can handle a wide variety of claim types in Massachusetts. Do not hesitate to call our wrongful death lawyers after you lose a loved one in any accident in Cambridge for a free review. We will tell you if we believe you have grounds for a civil claim.

Elements Needed for a Wrongful Death Suit in Massachusetts

In general, for a valid wrongful death claim, your Cambridge injury lawyer will need to prove the defendant owed your loved one a legal duty to exercise care, breached this duty, and caused your loved one’s death. The lawyers at Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP may be able to fulfill this burden of proof after thoroughly investigating the accident and collecting any available evidence.

We can often use medical records, expert testimony, and eyewitness accounts to help prove a case. Act quickly, however, as the statute of limitations to file a wrongful death claim in Massachusetts is three years from the date of the loved one’s passing.
