Advocates For When The Unimaginable Happens

We all hope that it will never happen to us. No one expects to lose a loved one in an accident. It is even worse when the accident could have been avoided or if the loss was due to someone's negligence.

At O'Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, our wrongful death lawyers know that no loss is ever as great as negligence which results in death. We compassionately, but aggressively, pursue wrongful death claims because we don't want this terrible thing to happen again. By holding the responsible parties accountable, the hope is that the act will not repeat.

You Can't Bring Them Back | But You Can Address The Wrongdoing

No amount of money will ever replace a father, mother, child lost due to someone's negligent actions. However, you can pursue litigation in order to address what caused the accident to act as a deterrent, to cover your expenses and your loss, and to ensure this doesn't happen to someone else. That is the purpose of pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit — through settlement or trial.

We frequently handle wrongful death claims in cases including:

  • Truck accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Other fatal accidents
  • Electric shock drowning
  • Product liability
  • Premises liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Surgical errors
  • Infant loss
  • Nursing home negligence

If you have lost a loved one due to negligence, reach out to an experienced team of attorneys who are adept at dealing with these complex matters in a compassionate manner.
