A fatal car accident involving two vehicles occurs on a darkened stretch of highway. The driver responsible for the near head-on collision has a blood alcohol content nearly twice the legal limit. A wrongful death lawsuit is filed by the surviving family members. One of two things will happen next.
There will be a lawsuit settlement, or the case will go to court.
At Quatrini Rafferty, our lawyers bring a great deal of experience and tough-minded advocacy to the negotiating table in these cases, but we also have experience in bringing them to trial.

What is the difference between a survival action and a wrongful death action?
- A wrongful death action is filed by spouses, children, and/or parents of the deceased individual to compensate for their own personal loss.
- A survival action is taken on the part of the victim’s estate for any pain and suffering the individual endured between the time of the accident and their actual time of death.
As in every concern, our attorneys are committed to providing you with outstanding legal service and mindful attention to your goals — not ours.
