Wrongful Death

St. Paul Fatal Accident Attorneys

No amount of money can replace a loved one. However, people who lost a parent, child, spouse, grandparent or sibling because of another’s negligence may be able to recover damages and compensation that can free them from financial worry and help them heal emotionally.

Experienced Lawyers Seeking Full Compensation for Clients

At the St. Paul law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., our lawyers are sensitive to our clients’ situations. We know that the death of a loved one causes significant emotional turmoil and suffering. Those left behind have lost the love, companionship, guidance and advice of someone dear. Minnesota law recognizes this and gives people the opportunity to seek a financial remedy. For nearly 30 years our law firm has been helping clients whose loved one died because of negligence, misconduct or deliberate disregard.

Payment in a Wrongful Death Case

People whose loved one died as a result of another’s negligence can seek compensation for:

  • The income or support provided by the deceased
  • The comfort, assistance, advice, protection and companionship provided by the deceased
  • Punitive damages if the evidence shows deliberate disregard by the defendant
  • Funeral costs
  • Medical costs

Our attorneys have assisted clients who lost loved ones in motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury accidents. We strive to obtain full compensation for our clients’ losses after a fatal accident.

Act Quickly After a Fatal Accident

The law, known as Minnesota law 573, requires that a claimant bring a wrongful death case within three years of the death. However, it is good to bring a claim as soon as possible so that witnesses remember and evidence is preserved. Our attorneys can advise about the time limits imposed by the wrongful death statute.
