Attleboro Wrongful Death Attorney
Boston, Massachusetts Wrongful Death Attorney
Massachusetts’ wrongful death law allows the family survivors of an individual who died unnecessarily to be awarded specific damages based on the facts of the case. A wrongful death claim is made on the basis that, had the deceased person not died, he or she would have had cause for a personal injury claim. Since the incident or accident was fatal, the deceased person’s estate can now make a wrongful death claim for damages that should have been awarded for the personal injuries.
A wrongful death claim can only be brought forward by the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate. Any damages won will be awarded to the estate. In order to win a wrongful death claim, it must be proven that the death was caused by one of the following:
- Failing to provide reasonable care
- Gross negligence
- An act that was malicious, wanton, or reckless
Damages that may be obtained through such a claim include the value of the wages or income the deceased person would have provided had he or she lived, damages for the care, comfort, guidance, and companionship that would have been provided to the family, and funeral and burial expenses.
In the case of malicious, wanton, or reckless behavior, punitive damages may be awarded. Punitive damages are meant to punish the wrongdoer. You do not have to face the future alone. Contact Brian D. Roman, Attorney at Law at (508) 576-5922 for compassionate and experienced legal guidance.

I got charged with possession of a firearm a week after I got hired for a local police. I knew I was wrongly charged and with all the paperwork to prove that I was wrongly charged every attorney I spoke to tried to overtly charge me and told me that my career would most likely be over and that I can potentially face jail time.. some didn’t even look at the evidence that proved my innocence. I spoke with attorney Roman and he reviewed my paperwork and evidence and I told him about my job and told me that I could get it dismissed… within 2 weeks my case was dismissed with an apology from the court house and now my life is back to Normal. I know that things shouldn’t be about race but as a black man I really felt that everyone turned against me and thought I was guilty except attorney Roman and I will forever be grateful for him. So I would recommend him to any and everyone.- Mike
After being charged with several motor vehicle violations late on a Friday evening, I left Attorney Roman a voicemail and was extremely surprised that he returned the call and was able to meet on a Saturday morning to discuss possible defense strategies. Attorney Roman was honest about all possible strategies and outcomes. When the time came for the case to go to trial, his previous experience as a district attorney really gives him an edge in your defense... When even the prosecuting attorney tells you that you have a good lawyer, it speaks volumes for the quality of Attorney Roman's defense!- John
On July 14, 2016 I contacted Brian D Roman regarding an outstanding matter in Attleboro District Court located in Attleboro, Ma. Brian and I spoke at great lengths via telephone. I am a lifelong resident of the beautiful state of New Jersey, Cape May County to be a bit more specific.
Brian advised he could handle my case and has had prior experience dealing with similar cases, in the exact same Court. I retained Brian to handle the case prior to the conclusion of our initial telephone call.
Today, July 20, I received a priority mail express envelope in my mailbox. Inside the envelope was all court documents indicating the matter has been dismissed.
I would like to express how thorough, honest, and knowledgeable Brain was on the matter and the specific court. His years of experience definitely saved me a trip to Massachusetts. I have never been to Massachusetts, but should the day arise within the near future I will definitely like to personally meet and thank Brain D Roman.
At the conclusion of our initial telephone conversation, your mission was to have the matter dismissed. It should all be noted, Brain contacted me on a regular basis, providing status updates until the matter was resolved. You accomplished your mission and I'm proud to say, Job well done,

I was very scared and called Attorney Roman based on a referral and reviews here. He met with me within 24 hours and was able to push my pre-trial date up for the same day! He explained all of my rights and what would happen in court very thoroughly and was patient in answering all my questions. We agreed on my plea and got exactly what we asked for in court; again, same day! This allowed me to apply to get my license back months and months sooner. He gave me peace of mind and honestly saved me. Thank you, Atty Roman!- Previous Client
I was a minor who had gotten into a little bit of trouble, and that's how I met Brian. He was hired to help me with my case and he did an excellent job. Most lawyers just talk for you and that's it, but Brian always kept me in the loop. He would call me on a regular basis with updates or any news he had heard of. He also kept what we talked about between us and not with my family which to me is a huge trust factor. He also helped me beat both cases and still keeps in touch to see how I'm doing today. Overall great attorney and I would definitely recommend him.- Alex
Unfortunately, I found myself in some unexpected trouble when a friend used my name years prior when she got caught shoplifting. I was stuck with felony charges and even worse didn't commit the crime. I chose Brian Roman to represent me and he did everything he could to help me and eventually got all the charges dropped with only court fines. I left that day very pleased but what stuck out the most was when I was walking home. My car had been broken down so I had to walk home from the courthouse. Brian pulled over and picked me up in his personal vehicle to give me a ride home even though it was out of his way. Great guy and such a gentleman. Highly recommend!- Tiffany
