Wrongful Death

Minnesota Wrongful Death Lawyer & Attorney

The death of a loved one is a terrible and painful loss.  If your family member, relative, or unborn child has died as the result of another person’s negligence, inattention or carelessness, you may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.

At Frentz and Frentz, we know you are going through a very difficult time. You are upset, you are hurting, and grieving the tragic loss of a member of your family.  We promise to work hard on behalf of your family.  We will seek to recover the maximum compensation for your family’s loss while at the same time providing support and answering questions for your family during this time.  We have represented hundreds of families in wrongful death cases and are familiar and knowledgeable in Minnesota laws and court proceedings that go along with making a wrongful death claim.

In Minnesota, wrongful death cases could include:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Medical error
  • Dramshop Claims ( illegal sale of alcohol)

Damages in wrongful death claims are generally limited to the losses suffered by the family and can include:

  • Monetary support or income the deceased provided to the household
  • Comfort and companionship the deceased provided to the household

Wrongful death claims can be complicated so it is vital that legal representation is sought so families can be advised on the legal aspects of these claims, such as appointing a trustee on behalf of the family through the Court, and assisting the family through the settlement and distribution phases of settlements received.  All wrongful death claims in Minnesota must be brought to the court within three years of the individual’s death.

In Dram Shop claims, the laws and timelines differ than those of a Wrongful Death claim.  It is important to consult our attorneys so you receive the best legal advise on how to proceed with these types of claims. By hiring Frentz and Frentz Law Offices, you will have a wrongful death lawyer by your side that can make a strong case for your family.
