Caring Attorneys Help You Cope with a Wrongful Death

Restoring dignity to the deceased for more than 20 years

The loss of a loved one is hard enough without the additional torment of seeing a negligent party escape responsibility. When the responsible party is a large corporation, insurance company, the government, a prestigious hospital or a healthcare provider, your pursuit of justice can seem daunting, if not futile. At Dillon & Findley, we dedicate our considerable resources to support valid claims for wrongful death cases. We stake our preeminent reputation on the proposition that justice matters more than the relative strength of opposing parties; we labor to ensure that our clients have every opportunity to obtain full, fair compensation for their loss. Our legal team has more than 20 years of experience assisting people with wrongful death claims related to:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Boat accidents
  • Cruise ship accidents
  • Defective consumer products
  • Defective highway design or construction
  • Hospital errors
  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises liability
  • Prescription drug liability
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect
  • Surgical errors
  • Truck accidents
  • Tourist accidents

Our accomplished attorneys provide the formidable representation our clients need to feel confident that justice can ultimately be served.

Difficulties associated with prosecuting a wrongful death lawsuit in Alaska

Our legal system has never adequately determined the proper consequences for the loss of a human life. Whether in criminal court, where judges search for an appropriate sentence for involuntary manslaughter, or in the civil system, where the juries struggle to express the loss of life in monetary terms, there is no standard compensation for the death of a unique and irreplaceable person. Defendants and their insurance companies fear that a jury might adopt the attitude that “there isn’t enough money in the world!” They also fear the moral outrage that attaches to the blame for loss of life, and how such a scandal could negatively impact their future business. For these reasons, defendants and their insurers bitterly contest wrongful death actions, making it difficult for valid claimants to obtain even reasonable, let alone full and fair, compensation for the death of their loved one.

Full-strength legal and financial resources at your service

Fortunately, Dillon & Findley has the legal skills, financial reserves and determination necessary for success in highly contested wrongful death cases. Our medical malpractice attorneys are renowned for their litigation skills, including the ability to challenge expert testimony and present highly technical points of contention to a jury in a manner that is understandable. We advance costs for cases on a contingency basis. These cases often require exhaustive discovery and consultation with numerous experts in their fields. But perhaps most importantly, we are motivated by professional ethics and personal pride to deliver the aggressive and outstanding representation necessary to secure a just outcome. At Dillon & Findley we choose our clients carefully, and once we undertake a case, we put the full force of our legal team behind it.
