  • Nashville Wrongful Death Lawyer


    The wrongful death of a loved one is devastating to all involved. The Higgins Firm in Nashville, has been representing victims of catastrophic injuries and the families of the wrongfully deceased for years. We know that quality representation requires more than simply obtaining a large sum of money. It requires a genuine understanding of our client’s loss and giving the family an opportunity to be heard.

    The Nashville Wrongful Death Attorneys at the Higgins Firm handles serious cases involving catastrophic injuries and wrongful death in Nashville as well as throughout the country. Wrongful deaths may result from a number of different events or accidents. These cases commonly involve tractor-trailer collisions, serious automobile collisions, nursing home neglect, medical malpractice cases and on-the-job injuries. Successful lawsuits in a Nashville wrongful death case can award victims thousands or even upwards of millions of dollars. Damages can be awarded to cover a variety of expenses including the deceased’s medical bills, loss of wages, as well as funeral and burial expenses. While each case is obviously different, The Higgins Firm will fight for the amount that you and your family deserve no matter what the amount.


    These cases require substantial resources, financial and otherwise, to properly investigate, develop and present. Expert witness fees alone can be substantial. In order to obtain compensation, the party pursuing a Nashville wrongful death claim must prove that the death resulted from another party’s negligence or malpractice. Many firms lack the resources to pursue this type of litigation; unfortunately, these are some of the most serious and worthy claims in the law.

Multiple lawyers and support staff assist Mr. Higgins who has vast experience in trying significant injury cases. His career began defending insurance companies and businesses but now he fights for the injured. He has obtained millions of dollars in settlement and jury verdicts. Mr. Higgins is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is an organization limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for their clients.
