We know losing a loved one is not just hard, but catastrophic. This can be even more difficult knowing that their death was the result of another's negligent or reckless actions. We help family members pursue justice. We have decades of experience helping our clients work through this difficult process, counseling and guiding them each step of the way.
Wrongful death claims are controlled by strict statutes and, often, complicated laws regarding who can recover and the time frame in which claims must be brought, which in some instances is as little as six months after an event that leads to death.
Wrongful death laws often only permit certain family members to bring claims for wrongful death. These are, typically, limited to direct family members, and usually include:
We help surviving family members recover financial awards for wrongful death, and ensure that we claim and recover the maximum amount possible for wrongful deaths. Compensation may include:
These awards, in some states, are capped by laws (often called Tort Reform), and in some cases a judge or jury may restrict awards based on existing laws.
If you have a question about who can bring a claim, or if or when a claim can be made, give us a call. Our wrongful death attorneys provide free consultations and can help you analyze the potential claim and determine the next step forward, and provide compassionate and caring counsel.
