Wrongful Death Attorneys in Wilmington

Seeking Justice in Wrongful Death Cases since 1995

At Bifferato Gentilotti, LLC, we realize that nothing can truly compensate for the loss of a family member. Enduring the loss of a loved one is one of life’s most distressing events. When that death occurs prematurely due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, it can be even more devastating. Nothing can bring back your loved one or really compensate for their loss. However, a wrongful death claim can help you recover financial damages for many aspects of this loss.

Our wrongful death attorneys can help to ensure that you receive needed and rightfully deserved financial compensation. As in every case, we will work diligently, respectfully, and with the utmost concern for the well-being of you and other family survivors. As experienced litigators, we know what it takes to handle these often-complex cases and have the skills, knowledge, and resources required to build the strongest and most compelling position possible.

What Compensation Does a Wrongful Death Claim Provide?

When someone is killed by the negligent or unjust actions of another person or entity, whether intentional or unintentional, the immediate family members of the deceased person can file a wrongful death suit. A wrongful death claim might result when the death occurs as a result of drunk driving accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, or murder.

A wrongful death suit is intended to compensate surviving family members for:

  • Medical expenses related to the injuries incurred before the decedent passed away
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the decedent prior to death
  • Compensation to family members for loss of support and services
  • Compensation to family members for loss of companionship and protection
  • Compensation to family members for loss of prospective inheritance from the deceased

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Those who can pursue a wrongful death claim include spouses, children, parents, and siblings of the deceased person. If none of these exist, the claim can be filed by anyone related to the decedent by blood or through marriage. Claims must be filed within two years of the decedent’s death.
