After A Fatal Accident, We’re Here For You

Death can occur from many causes, and in many cases, there is nothing our courts can do to help grieving family members. However, sometimes death is caused by the negligence of another person or entity. If the death was wrongful under our legal system, survivors have a right to hold the negligent party accountable.

At Banning LLP, our attorneys handle all types of wrongful death claims occurring at sea and in the western United States, including:

  • Fatal car and truck accidents
  • Drownings and other fatal accidents at sea
  • Boating, water skiing and Jet Ski accidents
  • Oil rig disasters resulting in death
  • Fatal injuries caused by dangerous or defective products
  • Fires and explosions
  • Airplane and helicopter accidents

Our attorneys have years of experience taking on wrongful death claims under the Death on the High Seas Act and other maritime and admiralty laws. As an international law practice, our lawyers represent families of all nationalities in wrongful deaths cases in the Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and inland water locations.

Who Can Recover Money Under A Wrongful Death Claim?

Who is entitled to recover and what damages they can recover is fact-specific and will depend on where the accident occurred. We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case. You may be entitled to compensation for lost financial support, medical expenses, funeral expenses and emotional loss.

Our attorneys also have extensive experience in the probate process and helping your family appoint the right personal representative for your deceased family member.

Contingency fee representation: Because we work on contingency, we advance all costs of your case. If our firm does not recover compensation for you, then you will not have to pay any fees or costs.
