Anytime that we lose a loved one we are devastated. When they are killed due to the carelessness or negligence of another person as a result of a car accident it’s even worse. We read about drunk drivers, drivers that are drug impaired, distracted drivers and people driving un-roadworthy cars and trucks, that cause car crashes which result in death. The result for the grieving families is always the same. A sudden inexplicable death that makes no sense.
Determining fault in these cases can be almost as painful as the death itself. You shouldn’t try to deal with it alone. In times of legal questioning, and police investigation of the death of your loved one you need an experienced lawyer to help guide you through all of your options. The financial security of the future of your family is at risk.
As your representative we gather all the information that is required to build a strong case on your behalf. As the family seeking financial damages from the responsible party in a wrongful death lawsuit needs to prove:
- That the death was caused by the negligence of another or they intentionally committed an act with the intent to harm;
- The surviving family members have suffered monetary damages due to the death of their loved one.
The family is entitled to collect monetary damages for:
- Loss of the income contributed to the family unit by the deceased
- Medical expenses to be paid
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship
- Future handyman work at home
