Attorneys for wrongful death cases
If you have lost a family member or someone close to you due to injuries sustained in an accident, first know that we are very sorry for you loss. Though it’s always hard to go through the death of a loved under any circumstances, it can be even more difficult to process when their death was caused by someone else’s negligence. A wrongful death is one that was caused by any wrongful act by another person or corporation. If this is what happened in your situation, you may have a recourse.
Gregory A. Yates and Michael Shubeck, wrongful death attorneys at Rapid City Law Offices, handle cases involving defective products or medical negligence, car accident cases, and more. With over thirty years of experience in the field, our attorneys understand that the last thing you should be worrying about at a time like this is how you’re going to cover expensive medical and funeral costs. They will pursue the responsible party in your case, so that you can focus on taking care of yourself and your family.
Tell us about your situation
Our attorneys have successfully resolved many wrongful death lawsuits, and always work diligently to ensure that the company or person responsible is held accountable. This means, not only recovering money you’ve had to expend, but future pain and suffering and punitive charges, if applicable. They’ll start by sitting down with you for a case consultation to hear your account of what happened and begin to establish who is ultimately responsible. This is also known as “assigning liability”.
In a medical case, liability may be determined by establishing negligence on the part of a medical professional. Other factors are taken into consideration as well, such as the age of deceased at the time of the accident or a prior medical condition they suffered from.
In property cases, we will talk about whether or not there were posted warnings of the potential danger in the vicinity. Even if you think your loved one was at fault, you may be surprised to learn that land/structure owners have a responsibility to protect anyone with access to their location.
Consulting an attorney

We will also explain how, when working with a wrongful death attorney, your attorneys fees are generally charged on a contingency basis, meaning they are paid after a settlement has been reached.
