Have you lost a loved one? Find out if a wrongful death attorney can help.
Sometimes, when there’s a car accident or other negligent act, it isn’t just back pain, surgery, broken bones, or another physical injury that a person could still live with. Some of our loved ones pay the ultimate price for somebody else’s negligence, whether it’s a medical professional’s medical malpractice, a car accident, police brutality or otherwise.
When this happens, you can and should consider contacting a wrongful death attorney. While no amount of compensation can bring your loved one back or truly make up for their loss, seeking compensation will help your family. It can provide the financial means you need to carry on without your loved one’s income as well as provide a sense of closure by holding the party who caused your loved one’s death liable for their actions.
You can trust Perlmutter & Pourshalimi to work tirelessly for your family following a wrongful death. We can help gather evidence proving liability as well as document all the ways your loss has affected your family. This will put us in strong position to secure maximum compensation for you. We handle all kinds of cases as a wrongful death lawyer, including:
- Traffic Accidents
- Premises Accidents

Now You May Wonder…
What Types of Compensation Are Available in a Wrongful Death Case?
As your wrongful death attorney, we will work diligently to help your family recover full and fair compensation for all the types of damages permissible for wrongful death cases. This may include:
- Medical bills incurred before the death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of earnings or financial support your loved one would have provided
- Loss of household services your loved one would have performed
- Loss of consortium (for spouses)
- Loss of care, comfort, support, guidance, etc.
Will I Have to Go to Court?
Maybe. Every case is different. Depending on the facts of your case as well as the disposition of the at-fault party and/or their insurance provider, it may be possible to settle your case out of court. Settling wrongful death cases is advantageous in that it gets the matter resolved quickly; however, by settling you may end up with less compensation than you could have won at trial.
You can trust the experienced wrongful death attorneys at Perlmutter & Pourshalimi to provide our honest and professional advice regarding your options. Regardless of what you choose to do, we will fight aggressively to maximize your compensation. We are skilled litigators and we are not afraid to take cases to trial when necessary.
