Wrongful Death

The Higgins Firm has a History of Fighting for Wrongful Death Claims

The wrongful death of a loved one is devastating to all involved. The Higgins Firm, 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 Higgins Firm handles serious cases involving catastrophic injuries and wrongful death 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 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.

The Higgins Firm has the Resources and Experience in Assisting Clients

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 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.

Jim Higgins is the principal partner for the Serious Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation section of the firm. 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.

Client Reviews
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
