Wrongful Death Lawyers

As wrongful death lawyers, we are available to represent clients throughout Massachusetts, including Boston, Cambridge, Newton, and all towns across Suffolk County, Norfolk County, Middlesex County, Plymouth County as well as all across the Commonwealth. We have represented and do represent families who have lost loved ones in car crashes as well as in institutions such as rehabilitation facilities.

If you and your family have suffered the loss of a loved one due to the negligence, reckless actions of another, or wanton and willful conduct, or deliberate indifference, we offer our sincere condolences.  You and your family are experiencing a loss that no one should ever have to endure.

We understand.

We offer full service personal representation to get clients and their families through the difficult process of suffering a wrongful death.  While we cannot undo past events, we can work vigorously in seeking full compensation from all those who may have been responsible for a loved one’s death, and demand, from all those responsible, full and fair compensation.

We Accept Wrongful Death Cases On A Contingency Fee Basis.

This means that you and your family will not owe us any fee unless and until we obtain a recovery.

We will advance costs in wrongful death actions, such as the significant costs that are often involved in the litigation process, including those that may be required to hire medical and other experts and accident reconstructionists.

In a wrongful death case, we will usually retain experts to provide opinions concerning difficult matters, such as lost wages. We will also fight for the family members left behind, and demand full compensation for the crushing emotional loss that they must suffer.

We Are Trial Lawyers. If Defendants Will Not Pay What They Owe, We Will Take Them to Trial.

We operate differently than many personal injury law firms.  We engage in the difficult work of proving the cases of our clients early in litigation, with the expectation that we and our clients will go to trial unless an acceptable settlement is offered.  The advantage of this strategy is that (i) it puts our clients in a better position to obtain a full and fair settlement in the negotiation process, as opposing counsel know that we are ready to go to trial, and (ii) if an acceptable settlement cannot be reached, we are well prepared to go to trial right away.  Many other law firms take a different approach, preferring not to engage in the difficult litigation work unless an acceptable settlement cannot be obtained.

We are trial lawyers, and defendants and their counsel and insurance companies know that if an acceptable settlement is not offered, we will not hesitate to go to trial and let a jury determine fault and damages.

Client Review

“I highly recommend Attorney Matthew Fogelman for legal services. He has worked on two very different cases for me. In both cases, He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I felt that I could trust him and that I did not have to worry about the cases. Matt is very honest and told me what I could and could not expect. He did not make any false promises or give me false expectations. I felt that he sincerely cared about me as a person and did everything possible to be sure that my best interests came first. It was very comforting when going through a difficult time to know that I had someone who was knowledgeable and talented looking out for me. It made a difficult situation much more bearable. It is unfortunate when a person finds themselves in a situation that they need legal representation. But if someone is in that situation, then I highly recommend Attorney Matthew Fogelman.”
