Compassionate Support & Skilled Counsel
In Wyoming, the immediate family of a person who has lost his or her life due to neglect or intentional wrongdoing may be able to file a wrongful death action to hold the at-fault party accountable. This type of lawsuit is filed in civil court as opposed to criminal court, where the at-fault party may face penalties of a financial nature rather than imprisonment. (It is important to note that, if the act is criminal in nature, a defendant may face both criminal charges and civil wrongful death proceedings, which are separate from one another).
Our Wyoming wrongful death lawyers handle civil lawsuits involving:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and cyclist accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Premises liability claims
- Dog bites and animal attacks
Through a wrongful death lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Funeral costs
- Medical bills
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of companionship
- Punitive damages (in some cases)
Although we cannot take away the pain you have experienced in losing a loved one, we can help you seek justice in your loved one’s name. We can work to make sure the party that caused your loss faces the consequences of their actions.
