Any death carries significant emotional and financial consequences. If the death was the result of negligence on the part of an individual or a corporation, the issues are even more complex. Our attorneys have the experience and compassion to provide clients with support and sound legal counsel. They attorneys have the knowledge and skills to effectively pursue and prove a wrongful death claim. We have helped numerous clients to receive the compensation required to meet their needs and move forward with their lives.
Although it is very difficult, if you have lost a loved one, you should address legal issues as early as possible. If you are a relative of the deceased, you may have a wrongful death claim. Once one of our attorneys has the facts in your situation, they will explain what damages can be claimed. These may include compensation for pain and suffering associated with grief and sorrow, medical bills and funeral expenses, loss of support from future earnings, loss of benefits such as pensions and insurance coverage, loss of a future inheritance and loss of companionship.
No sum of money can bring back the loved one and sometimes the family has feelings of guilt, perhaps because they feel like they are putting a price on a person’s life. Unfortunately, a monetary award is the only way civil law can recognize the value of the victim’s life, compensate for the death and subsequent losses, and penalize the party or parties at fault.
