We Help You Recover

The worst accidents are the ones that cause serious personal injury or that cause someone to lose their life. Fatal and catastrophic injury accidents can come in countless forms, but many of them are caused by someone else's negligence. When someone is killed in an accident, the victim is not the only one affected. Surviving family members must then suffer the loss of their loved one and any financial hardships that result from the victim's passing. Wrongful death claims are intended to help surviving family members recover compensation from the liable party when a loved one is killed in an accident.

While it’s true that no amount of money can truly compensate for the loss of a life, you should not hesitate to learn how a wrongful death claim can help you and your family. The spouse, minor children, dependents, and parents of a fatal accident victim recognized as beneficiaries under law can file a wrongful claim to recover for the monetary loss proven by the evidence.

Seeking Financial Damages

Family members have a right to seek financial damages from the person or party who caused the death of their loved one; compensation not only for the economic losses resulting from their loved one’s death but also for the loss of instruction, counsel, advice, assistance, companionship, and protection the descendant would have provided. If there is a non-working spouse or dependent at home, it will be especially important to seek full compensation for your family’s loss.

Wrongful death cases must be handled with the utmost care and empathy. But we also know that navigating the legal issues that ensue with insurance companies and adjusters can be frustrating. We will fight for you to protect your rights at each stage of the case to assure the future financial well-being of you and your family.
