Award-Winning Wrongful Death Attorneys in Reno, Nevada

Nevada law firm helping clients obtain compensation for 30 years

If a loved one has died after a car accident or injury caused by the negligence or misconduct of another person, company, or organization, you may be entitled to bring a legal action for wrongful death against those responsible.

 A wrongful death claim is designed to compensate the family for their loss. While no wrongful death settlement can truly compensate you for a loved ones’ absence, it can help grieving families handle the financial burdens and non-monetary damages. Additionally, the family left behind can honor the memory of their beloved by seeking accountability and closure against those responsible for their wrongful death.  

Increase your chances of winning the lawsuit by getting an expert wrongful death attorney to negotiate on your behalf and navigate the complex process during this time of intense grief.

You will also want to understand what, if any, life insurance your loved one may have had. 

If you are not sure if you have a strong claim, get a free consultation from Matt Dion and his associates. They will help you determine your chances of winning a wrongful death suit.
