Wrongful Death

Delaware Wrongful Death Lawyers

A fatal accident or other unexpected death is always hard to cope with. It is especially hard when you learn that your loved one was taken from you because of someone’s carelessness or disregard for safety.

A wrongful death lawsuit seeks accountability for the substantial impact on the surviving family members. It accounts for the person’s financial and household contributions, and it recognizes all the ways in which that person’s absence will be felt.

The Law Firm of Rhoades & Morrow, in Wilmington, Bear, and Milford is committed to holding the offending parties responsible and securing appropriate compensation for a preventable death. We handle wrongful death cases in New Castle County and throughout the state of Delaware. Speak with a lawyer today in a free consultation.

How We Can Help

We aim to take on the burdens of legal action so that our clients can focus on putting the pieces of their lives back together. The first order of business is to demonstrate liability. Over his 30 years of practice, founding attorney Joseph Rhoades has developed a proven network of professional investigators, accident reconstruction specialists and other experts who can help collect and analyze the evidence for any type of fatality, including:

We can also explore your potential claims for deaths from electrocution, drowning, suffocation and other fatal accidents in which another person or entity bears responsibility.

A Reflection Of Loss, Not Worth

A wrongful death suit is not meant to put a value on a person’s life. But it does reflect the survivors’ loss. We work with economists and other professionals to project the economic contributions if your loved one had lived out his or her normal lifespan. We work closely with family and friends to establish the non-economic damages: loss of love and consortium, companionship and support, and contributions to the family and community.
