Wrongful Death

Trusted Wrongful Death Attorneys in Anchorage and Matanuska Valley, AK 

The tragic loss of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences of a lifetime. Not only must you and your family grieve, but you must also deal with the financial burdens of funeral expenses and the loss of income and support that the victim offered to their family. 

However, if your loved one died due to the negligent actions of another party, you may be eligible to recover monetary compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. While compensation from a wrongful death case doesn’t ease the grief, it can help ease financial burdens and provide stability for the rest of the family.
