Wrongful Death

Call us today for a free consultation: 508-739-2000.

Losing a loved one in an accident caused by someone else’s careless or reckless act is one of the most traumatic events any of us can ever face. With decades of experience in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, we not only have genuine empathy for the grief and anger you may feel—we know how to take legal action in pursuit of justice and the financial compensation your family deserves.

After a fatal auto-accident, on-the job tragedy, or other catastrophic event has struck your family, having a trustworthy lawyer on your side can help ease the burden. Contact us for honest, proven legal counsel that may provide hope for the future and enable you to better focus on personal recovery. Our thorough case evaluation will be free, and you will never owe attorney fees unless we can pursue your case and get positive results.


We have handled Massachusetts wrongful death claims and lawsuits arising from car and pedestrian accidents and a range of other circumstances, seeking full compensation under the law for surviving family members. The circumstances of your case—including exactly what happened and where, who may be responsible, and whether criminal negligence such as drunk driving was involved—will determine damages we can seek for:

  • Medical, funeral and burial expenses associated with the fatal accident
  • The net income your spouse or other loved one would have expected to earn
  • Your tragic loss of protection, companionship, guidance and other human essentials


Although putting numbers to the loss of a human life never makes complete sense, this valuation step may prove incredibly important to your family’s future. Just as we do in cases involving severe life-changing injuries, we enlist expert resources as necessary for complex calculations, as part of our total effort to win a maximum recovery for you.

When you contact The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates, you will speak with an attorney prepared to investigate the fatal accident thoroughly and help you gain resolution on what happened. If we pursue a wrongful death suit on your behalf, we will do so determined to reach a fair settlement quickly—but also fully prepared to go to trial if necessary and best for your family.

Contact The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates today for a free consultation. Your initial consultation is free of charge and you will pay no attorney’s fees unless we recover compensation for you.
