Nothing is more difficult than losing a loved one. Grief, confusion and guilt are often part of the experience.
If the death was the result of negligence or recklessness—such as a car accident, construction accident or by medical malpractice—anger can also be present.
Death can raise difficult and complex legal questions. If you're unsure of how to proceed, let an accomplished Michigan wrongful death lawyer show you the way.

The law office of Keller & Keller is a leader in wrongful death claims. This reputation dates back to 1960, when founder George S.

Gnodtke forced courts to reconsider "pecuniary loss," altering wrongful death laws throughout the country.

A death in the family often leaves survivors wrangling with financial issues. In addition to medical costs, and funeral expenses, grieving families can be left coping with the loss of household income or inheritance.
Your call to Keller & Keller is always free. And because we work on a contingency basis, our clients never pay anything upfront.
Wrongful death claims are never easy and often require a lengthy investigation and ongoing communication with the insurance company. With more than 75 years of experience, Keller & Keller can back your case without earning a fee until a recovery is made.
Money can never bring back a loved one, but it can help the family in times of need. Especially when children are involved, those affected by the loss need to heal together and find some semblance of a normal life.
"What will others think if I file a lawsuit?"
That's a question many of our clients ask themselves before calling. Their profound grief has left them in a state of self-doubt, wondering whether talking to a lawyer is the wrong thing to do.
Trust your instincts. Those who disagree with you would likely do the same thing in your position.
Survivors must hold the liable party accountable in cases of wrongful death. It's not only the right thing to do, but could prevent further deaths in the future.
Of course, no amount of money can replace the presence of a loved one. But pursuing a negligent party for wrongful death can be an important step in the healing process and can help the survivors begin to put their lives back together.
