Wrongful Death Attorneys Corvallis

If you are facing the most tragic situation a person or family can face – the wrongful death of a loved one because of negligence or irresponsibility – the grief is difficult to endure. Your loved one died needlessly; another person or entity is responsible. When you are dealing with a misfortune of this magnitude, it may be difficult to think; taking legal action is the last thing on your mind. In a case like this, however, it is important to know that you may be facing considerable financial and life burdens because of this death; your family may be without the primary breadwinner, your children may be without their mother. Your loved one can never be brought back, but the responsible party should be held morally, legally, and financially responsible; your future is at stake. At Shlesinger & deVillenueve, we are dedicated to your welfare and committed to helping you through this traumatic time; we will make sure you receive the respect and compensation you deserve!

Legally, a “Wrongful Death” action is a case where the reckless or negligent conduct of another person or entity results in a fatality, or injuries that lead to a fatality. Most wrongful deaths are caused by a personal injury of some kind, including:

  • Premises Liability: serious physical injuries that result in death, or an immediate death that occurs on public or private properties
  • Product Liability: defective and/or dangerous products which, when used, cause serious physical injuries that result in death, or immediate death
  • Vehicle Accidents: serious physical injuries that result in death, or immediate death that is caused by any kind of moving vehicle
  • Medical Malpractice: impairment and/or affliction that results in death, or immediate death that is caused by medical error or medical negligence on the part of any kind of health care provider
