Wrongful Death

Compassionate Legal Guidance after a Tragic Loss

Words often fail to adequately describe the tragedy of losing a loved one, especially when the death could have been prevented. It is agonizing to accept a death that was caused by the negligence of another person, because it is accompanied by a strong sense of injustice. Legal action is always an option; Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, helps surviving relatives file wrongful death lawsuits and recover financial damages from the responsible party.
