Experienced Attorneys For Wrongful Death Claims
Whether arising from a motor vehicle collision, a slip and fall, or medical/nursing home negligence, each claim for wrongful death presents its own unique set of obstacles and challenges. At Kiernan, Plunkett & Redihan, LLP, our lawyers have extensive experience prosecuting and defending claims involving allegations of wrongful death and are well-versed in the particular issues that must be presented and considered under Rhode Island’s Wrongful Death Act.
Claims involving wrongful death have only increased in complexity since the Rhode Island General Assembly created statutory rights of recovery for the parents of deceased adult children and for adult children for the wrongful death of a parent. Our attorneys’ knowledge and experience in these areas are valuable resources for clients dealing with these difficult issues.
