Wrongful Death

Wrongful deaths result from wrongfully caused motor vehicle collisions, as well as other wrongful acts and omissions. As an example, Jim successfully completed a wrong death claim for the Estate of an 18 year old young man and his Parents. At that time, Jim challenged the plain language of a relevant statute that allowed the next of kin, (in this case the Parents), a recovery for loss of love and compassion for the wrongful death of a minor child. That matter stayed in litigation until the Vermont Supreme Court construed the statute to allow the next of kin to recover for loss of love and compassion for the wrongful death of an adult child, as well as a minor child. Jim successfully obtained all available proceeds for the Estate and the young man’s Parents. Jim has successfully completed a significant and substantial amount of wrongful death cases.
