Nothing can prepare you for the tragic loss of a loved one. A fatal accident can strike out of the blue, crushing you and your family like a thousand-ton freight train. That resounding question of “why?” can be even more unbearable if your loved one’s death was preventable. When another’s callous disregard or negligence contributed to your loss, you deserve financial recovery and closure.

Trademarked brand, slogans and celebrity likenesses are also subject to important protections.
