Loss of a Child

Parents are not supposed to bury their children — the loss is simply too great, the pain too difficult to manage. The death of a child is traumatic and devastating to everyone involved. If this death comes as a result of someone's negligence, the pain is amplified.

At the law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz, we work with parents and families that are coping with the death of their children. Although nothing we do can bring back a child, we work diligently to seek all remedies the law can provide.

For more than 65 years, we have been helping grieving families through times of great loss. We have the experience to get the results you need. Our track record of excellence includes several multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements. We know that money can never compensate or console you following the death of a child, but it can help to ensure that the negligent party bears responsibility for its actions and can often be used to help educate others to ensure that no one else loses his or her life so unnecessarily.

Loss of a Spouse

Facing the loss of a spouse, whether age-related, medically related or accident-related, is never easy. The pain exacts an exorbitant emotional toll that is far too slow to fade away. However, when a spouse is lost to premature death through the negligent actions of another person, the pain is exceeded only by anger and questions. How could this happen?
