Losing a loved one is a tragic event that can devastate the surviving family. When the decedent’s death was the result of the action or negligence of another party, then the victim’s estate can file a wrongful death suit. Wrongful death can be caused by medical malpractice, criminal activity, occupational hazards, and auto accidents.
During this emotional and difficult time, a wrongful death attorney can help you through the complicated legal process.
Know the Value of Your Case
Wrongful death claims are a complex case type. Family members of the decedent may not know what compensation is allowed, or what factors are considered in a settlement. Insurance companies are quick to take advantage of victims who do not have legal representation. Experienced wrongful death attorneys know the value of your claim, and will fight hard to win you fair compensation.
Resources & Experts
To make sure your claim has the best possible outcome, our wrongful death attorneys use a database of nationally recognized experts to build your case. We consult with cardiologists, nurses, economists, vocational counselors, life care planners, engineers, safety experts, and others to analyze evidence and testify on your behalf.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
There are many tricks insurance companies use to deny families fair compensation for pain and suffering. Our wrongful death attorneys know how to fight these tactics to make sure you receive a fair settlement.
Whether your case is better served going to trial or being resolved through a mediator, wrongful death attorneys will aggressively pursue your claim. We work hard to make sure your case is successfully resolved in a timely manner, so you can get your life back on track.
