Wrongful Death

Has someone you love been taken away from you too soon due to negligence? While nothing can erase the heartbreak of losing a loved one, a rightful settlement can help ease the financial concern and emotional pain. Our attorneys will do everything in their power to honor the memory of your loved one and deliver justice in their name.


Our Approach

At SHK Law, we pride ourselves on providing full support and sensitivity to our clients, while relentlessly and aggressively pursuing justice on their behalf.

Wrongful deaths can occur anywhere—at work, on the roadway, at school, even in private residences. They can also be caused by anything, from reckless driving to defective products. We begin these cases by conducting a thorough and proactive investigation to develop a 360-degree understanding of what occurred. Sometimes, that requires us to deploy private investigators across the country to locate witnesses or whistleblowers. Other times, we need to enlist the help of accident investigators to inspect the evidence and determine the cause of a crash. Each case requires a unique approach and the right team.

Before we ever file a case, we line up the evidence and strategize on a detailed and case-specific litigation plan. Once a lawsuit is filed, our team shapes the narrative of the case from the outset by leading the charge in discovery and taking the depositions of key witnesses. By the time the defense wakes up to the case, most witnesses will have already testified to how the incident occurred and who is at fault.

We hire the top experts – from experts in accident reconstruction and biomechanical engineering, to leading medical experts, depending upon the needs of the case. We also create tailored visuals and videos wherever helpful to better explain our case to the insurance carrier and/or jury.

We spare no expense in taking the necessary steps to prove and win a wrongful death case.

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
