Wrongful Death

When Tragedy Leads to Legal Action

There is nothing more traumatic and devastating than the loss of a loved one. When the death of your loved one is caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, the law provides for a civil cause of action called “wrongful death.”

Although no amount of money could ever compensate you for the loss of a loved one, your loved one’s legacy can be honored by holding the wrongdoer responsible. Without accountability, further injustice and unresolved questions remain.

And if you need a wrongful death lawyer to assist you in investigating whether you have a case, you won't find a better legal team than the one at Tamaki Law. 

We care. We listen. And we will provide advice on how you should proceed in your claims.
