Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Attorney

Accidents and situations that cause injuries can also potentially cause deaths. When a death occurs in these types of situations, the resulting lawsuit is deemed a "wrongful death" lawsuit. Taking action against the negligent party cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help begin the healing process and may get you the compensation that you deserve for your loss.

For many years, the law firm of Steve Juskewitch has been assisting families who have lost a loved one in a wrongful death situation. This experience has allowed us to become well respected within the legal community and also very well versed in laws that are specific to the State of Maine.

One such law governs the type of individuals who can and can't receive compensation from the loss of a loved one. The survivors of the deceased person who perished as a result of another's negligence can receive compensation for wrongful death only if they show that they have suffered a financial (pecuniary) loss.

Our wrongful death lawyers can ensure that your rights are preserved and that if you are eligible for compensation under this law, that you receive every dime that you are owed.

We have many years of experience with wrongful death cases and can assist you in choosing the best course of action to take in order to minimize the trauma to your family and maximize the compensation you may receive.

  • Fatal auto accident
