If you are reading this page, a tragedy in your life has occurred.  Losing a loved one in an accident is unimaginably awful.

At Zerillo Law Firm we know that pursuing legal action after a death can be painful. We also know that pursuing a wrongful death case is a part of the therapeutic process to help families begin to heal after the tragic loss of a loved one.

What type of recovery can I be awarded?

A wrongful death claim is a legal action taken on behalf of the estate or the loved ones of the deceased. Through a wrongful death claim, children, spouses and parents of the deceased may be able to collect monetary compensation for losses such as:

  • Loss of companionship and support
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral expenses
  • Education of children

Take Action Now to Protect Your Rights

We will initiate an immediate investigation to collect and preserve all necessary evidence for your wrongful death case. Our Portland wrongful death attorneys will review police evidence, medical documentation, consult with witnesses and work with experts to build your case. Experts such as accident reconstructionists, forensic accountants, private investigators and other professionals can attest to the pain of the victim and the financial losses suffered by your family.

Our firm is experienced in representing clients in wrongful death claims involving car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other fatal injuries. Wrongful death claims may also arise in the context of a homicide or intentional injury. While there are certain statutes that cap or limit the available coverage, our firm knows that there are other ways to calculate loss, including earnings, which are not subject to statutory limitations.
