Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one under any circumstance is difficult. However, losing a loved one in a vehicular accident is particularly devastating. Determining who is at fault can be almost as painful as the loss itself. Having a family shattered by the wrongful death of a loved is a terrible tragedy that you should not attempt to deal with on your own. At times like this, you need an experienced lawyer to guide you through your legal options to ensure the financial security of your family.

At Deutschmann Law we understand how challenging this situation can be. Our job is to help you make sense of this tragedy from a legal standpoint and to let you know the legal options that you have available to you.

A party 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

The legal process where wrongful death is concerned can be complex and confusing. That is why you need a lawyer who is an expert in this area by your side.

Losing a loved one is overwhelming, but we are here to help you move forward confidently, knowing that your financial security is our primary concern. Every case is important to us.
