Wrongful Death

Tucson Wrongful Death Attorney

When you have lost a loved one due to someone's criminal or negligent act, your relationship with your attorney in a wrongful death case has to be built on trust. At the Law Office of Elliot Glicksman, PLLC, we spend a great deal of time and thought getting to know the family and how the life of the deceased contributed to that family. Call or e-mail us to schedule a consultation with Mr. Glicksman.

Legal Remedies for Surviving Family Members

A wrongful death claim naturally cannot restore wholeness to a bereaved family after a fatal injury in the same way that, say, a property loss claim can. A house, a car or a piece of jewelry can be replaced. But the value of a life of a beloved husband, wife, son, daughter, father or mother cannot be measured in dollars. Love, companionship and emotional security cannot be quantified in tangible terms.

Compensating Survivors for Losses and Expenses

However, the loss of a family member usually involves financial losses as well as emotional ones. A wrongful death claim after a criminal act has resulted in a fatality can help surviving family members deal with expenses and losses such as:

  • Unpaid medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Replacement of lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Counseling and medication for survivors enveloped in paralyzing grief

Understanding the Intangible Aspects of Loss of a Family Member

As an attorney who has focused his career on helping surviving members of victims of crime, Mr. Glicksman deeply understands the priceless nature of a human life. For this reason, he places a high priority on the subtle process of getting to know a family and the meaning that the loss of a loved one has for that family. Knowledge of the meaning of the loss to the family helps build compelling wrongful death claims.

Psychologist Liability: Mr. Glicksman has experience with cases against a psychiatrist or psychologist for not warning the victim that the patient may cause them harm. He has handled two tragic cases where counselors knew or should have known that their patient was a risk to kill an innocent person. In both instances, he recovered from the counselor after the patient killed someone. In one case, the counselor never warned a wife about her husband's violent threats against her. The husband wound up killing his wife, his two children, and himself. Mr. Glicksman represented the deceased woman's mother.
