Did a 911 Error Lead to the Death of Your Loved One?
911 Call Center & Cell Phone Company Negligence Litigation, Nationwide
If your family is grieving a sudden wrongful death tragedy due to a 911 error, you could be entitled to full financial compensation for your overwhelming loss. Telecommunications companies are bound by federal law to provide accurate information on the whereabouts of lost persons. When that statutory obligation is not heeded, the 911 agency or cell phone company should be held accountable.
911 errors send first responders to wrong locations and create confusion between agencies regarding proper response jurisdiction. This wastes precious time and results in aggravated injuries, as well as crimes and deaths that could have been prevented. With the technology available to provide correct addresses, update old information and properly locate people, there is absolutely no excuse for 911 errors.
Our personal injury and wrongful death attorneys stand in the forefront handling cases stemming from 911 errors. We have been litigating these cases for many years. Law offices around the country have referred these cases to us because of our nationwide reputation and track record of success.

A 911 error can be caused by a negligent practice or procedure at a call center or data center. Operators at 911 centers have been known to lead rescuers of lost persons to the wrong address. A serious error can also be due to malfunctioning equipment, such as a cell phone system that fails to warn authorities of a lost or disoriented person’s exact location.
When a 911 operator, hard line, land line or cell phone fails to do its job, tragedy can strike. Someone who is missing or endangered at sea, in a forest or wilderness, blizzard or avalanche may be separated from medical attention they need, or they may never be found. Other possibilities that result from 911 errors include:
- Wrongful death
- Criminal acts
- Aggravated injuries or illnesses
We can protect your family’s rights in court by suing potentially liable parties for 911 errors. Grounds for these lawsuits include:
- Loss of affection, mutual love and companionship
- Loss of income
- Past and future medical expenses
- Fear, anguish, thirst, hunger
- Pain and suffering
We work closely with inventors and engineers who develop 911 technology, whose findings will support your case. We thoroughly scrutinize call center and data center records for evidence of short cuts, carelessness and negligent practices. Our goal is to achieve for you the maximum award available under the law.
