Seeking Justice for Wrongful-Death Survivors

Dedicated wrongful-death lawyers serve the Midwest and nation at large

At Townsend & Townsend, LLP, we strongly believe that negligent parties must be held responsible if they cause the death of another. We are zealous advocates who are dedicated to ensuring that you receive the maximum compensation possible for your loss — not only to help your family move forward, but also to punish negligent individuals and companies for their actions. Our Indianapolis wrongful-death lawyers have 90 combined years of experience in representing survivors in lawsuits.

Pursuing damages

Prompt action is critical to obtaining damages after the death of a family member. Under Indiana law, you have a limited period of time to file a wrongful death suit. Our professionals are well-versed in the courtroom tactics that the opposition uses in such trials to attempt to limit their liability, and we counter their arguments with carefully planned responses that are designed to protect your rights. We work hard to ensure that you receive compensation for:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost — including medical insurance — because of the victim’s death
Our attorneys can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit before their passing.

Have a wealth of knowledge by your side

Every attorney with Townsend & Townsend, LLP has an in-depth understanding of how to construct wrongful-death lawsuits in court. We frequently work with private investigators and experts to establish liability, obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and perform a myriad of other tasks to build a case on your behalf.

Our law firm has tried wrongful-death lawsuits related to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Workplace accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Aviation accidents
Although we settle suits before going to court — if doing so is likely to produce a favorable result — we do not hesitate to litigate cases, when necessary.
