The loss of a loved one in an avoidable accident is one of the most difficult tragedies imaginable. Family members often wrestle not only with the grief of a loved one passing, but the constant understanding that the loss didn’t need to happen.
For those traumatized by a preventable death, there is often not just sadness -- but righteous anger at those that caused it. While people in this situation may be entitled to financial recovery, what they want most often is simply to hold accountable the people responsible for the loss.
Our firm is dedicated to helping families who have been victimized by a wrongful death and to making sure they obtain the justice they deserve. More than this, we are committed to helping families recover from these difficult times and to providing the resources necessary to deal with tragic circumstances.
Unfortunately, situations involving the wrongful death of a friend or family member are very complicated from a legal standpoint. There are frequently a number of state laws and statutes that impact when and how the family can recover for these injuries. It is also frequently necessary to go through a legal estate process prior to obtaining legal recovery for these claims. This often takes time and must be completed before the statute of limitations expires. Once the statute of limitations expires, the family loses all right to recover for the wrongful death.
While these situations should never arise, we are experienced in helping families cope with this type of tragedy. If you’ve lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, contact us now and over the course of a few minutes we can work to protect your rights.

Don is a founding partner and one of the nation’s top-ranked personal injury litigators. He is a member of the Multi-million Dollar Advocates Forum, which includes less than 1% of the nation’s trial lawyers, and awarded the highest ranking given by Martindale Hubbel and AVVO.
More importantly, Don understands representing personal injury victims is about more than recovering the best settlement: it’s about helping clients get back on their feet and supporting them in every aspect of their recovery.
In nearly all cases, our clients seek compensation from the wrongdoer’s insurance company. Before forming Wruck Paupore, Jason worked for a prominent law firm representing some of the world’s largest insurers. This experience gives Jason a deep understanding of the insurance industry and the strategies it uses to pay injury victims as little as possible.
Jason -- and our entire team -- put this inside knowledge to work to force insurance companies to pay what is actually owed. Often, we use the insurance company’s own tactics against them as we fight for the full compensation our client deserves.
For more than four decades, Keith has been fighting for injury victims. During that time, he’s watched the insurance industry change, with insurers now more interested in protecting their stock price than treating injury victims fairly.
Since the beginning, Keith has put people first. From his childhood in Gary, Indiana during the 1960’s and working his way through law school, Keith has risen to become one of the Midwest’s most respected trial lawyers. He has never forgotten that being a lawyer is about helping people -- and seeing injury victims through struggles in a way that could change their lives forever.
Over the decades, Keith, Don and Jason have fought relentlessly for clients, even when other lawyers have said the case was impossible to win.
