At the Law Offices of Peter W. Summerill, our experienced attorneys believe that people must be held accountable for their actions when they result in the death of someone else. Our attorneys aggressively pursue wrongful death claims on behalf of Utah residents. Your case is more than about money. It’s about sending a firm message that the reckless actions that caused the death of a loved one will not be tolerated.
It’s understandable that speaking to an attorney might be the last thing on your mind after the wrongful death of a loved one. However, the steps you take in the days or weeks following a wrongful death are crucial for securing compensation for damages you’ve suffered as a result of your loss. We can take care of the details so you can focus on what matters most: being with your family through this difficult time.

- Medical expenses
- Death and funeral expenses
- Loss of income
