Wrongful Death Lawyer Portland
It’s a simple truth that death is a natural part of life. However, death that cuts a person’s life short due to the negligent act or decision of another person, product, or entity is wrong.
Tragically after a wrongful death accident grieving family members and loved ones also must deal with their sudden loss, costly funeral expenses, and medical bills.
They may also experience financial distress by no longer being able to pay for rent, utilities, and other living expenses that were once covered by the deceased’s income.
