Our legal teams deal with many cases of severe life-threatening injuries and cases of wrongful death all over the United States. There may be many different reasons that a wrongful death occurs. Some of these claims occur due to crashes with a tractor and trailer, severe car accidents, abuse or negligence in a nursing or long term care facility, medical mistakes, and from accidents that occur at the workplace. If a lawsuit is won, the victims of the wrongful death claim can receive compensation for both the financial loss of the loved one and the emotional loss. Compensation may be given for health expenses, if you or a loved one has lost income due to the wrongful death, and for costs that you have while putting your loved one to rest. Each claim varies but our attorneys will make sure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
Wrongful death claims can be complicated and costly and may take several different types of sources to help gather evidence and to adequately prepare your case. If you have people that where there when the death occurred, payment for this testimony during your lawsuit can be very costly.
For you to be awarded monetary damages in a wrongful death case, you are required to provide proof that the death occurred due to someone else’s carelessness. Many attorneys do not have the necessary funding and experience to work on these kinds of cases even though these cases tend to be the most important and significant ones.
