•(2) That the death was caused by the negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or intentional acts of another; and
•(3) That a family member has or will experience financial or emotional hardship as a result of the death.
The wrongful death lawyers at the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. will evaluate these elements as well as other relevant state law in order to determine what compensation you are entitled to. We will advise you accordingly and zealously pursue recovery from the responsible parties.

•- 4,600 work-related deaths occur every year as the result of dangerous machinery, electrocution, fall, etc.
•- Hundreds of thousands of vehicular accidents result in tens of thousands of fatalities each year.
