Compassionate Father-Son Team of Attorneys Handling Wrongful Death Claims

There is nothing more devastating than the sudden loss of a loved one. The shock and grief is something that stays with a family forever. However, there are steps that immediate family members can take after losing a loved one in an accident. Negligence could very well have been a major factor in the cause of your loved one’s death. Certain surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a decedent’s estate. This type of injury claim requires an experienced law firm — one that has the right connections with the right financial experts who can analyze your claim.

Damages in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Once we have reviewed your loved one’s accident and the circumstances surrounding it, we will then try to determine the amount of compensation. This will involve working with various experts to help in this determination, as evaluating the rest of a person’s life is not something that should be taken lightly.

In a wrongful death claim, damages can include funeral expenses, loss of income, medical expenses, loss of consortium (emotional damages) as well as pain and suffering. We will work hard to seek the maximum amount of damages for your specific case.

Whether your loved one passed due to a catastrophic injury such as a brain, head or spinal cord injury or died in a car crash, bike accident or hit-and-run accident, we can help you every step of the way on your road to seeking justice.
