When Negligence Or Reckless Acts Lead To Death

Carter & Putnam, LLC, can explore a wrongful death action in any scenario where negligence is suspected such as:

  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Drunk driver/dram shop lawsuits
  • Truck accidents (collisions with commercial vehicles)
  • Medical negligence in surgery or failure to diagnose
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Electrocution (electric shock accidents)
  • Construction accidents
  • Dangerous products

Tamara Putnam is an experienced trial lawyer who knows how to build a case for liability. We strive for a fair settlement but we are prepared to take cases to trial. Compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit can include funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of the family member’s income, loss of their household services, loss of consortium (marital relations) and loss of the person’s love, support, companionship and advice. If the deceased suffered prior to death, their estate can also bring a survival action for monetary damages for pain and mental anguish.
