Practice Areas

California and Alaska

Wrongful Death
People die in accidents every day. Often, those deaths should not have occurred - they happened because of someone else's carelessness or negligence, or because of a defective product, or as a result of some other wrongdoing. The families of people who have been wrongfully killed have a right to seek compensation from the person or entity causing the death of their loved one; compensation not only for the economic losses resulting from their loved one's death, but more importantly for the loss of care, comfort and society. There are an infinite number of ways that people can be wrongfully killed. Often times, the liability issues involved in wrongful death cases are extremely complex. If your family member has died and you think that their death might have been wrongfully caused by someone, you should contact Ensminger Law Offices for your free consultation and piece of mind.
