The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one can be difficult for anyone to handle. While the emotional harm of knowing that one will never hear a loved one’s laughter again or spend another holiday together is more than enough to leave surviving family members with unimaginable pain, they may also be forced to confront the financial loss often associated with these incidences. This can be particularly difficult to cope with, especially during a time when surviving family members are simply trying to move on in remembrance of their lost loved one.
Although it may be challenging to think about legal action during this time, doing so could lead to the imposition of liability, the recovery of compensation and closure. Compensation can help alleviate the financial damages unfairly thrust upon a family, such as medical expenses, funeral costs and loss of support, but it can also help alleviate some of the noneconomic harm caused. This may include loss of consortium and pain and suffering.
While a wrongful death lawsuit may be a tremendous help to a family, it can also be extremely difficult. It often drags up horrible memories and graphic details that family members are often trying to push to the back of minds. This is where the assistance of a skilled legal professional, like those found at our law firm, can help. Our firm knows how to aggressively handle wrongful death cases so that our clients can rest assured that their claims are in the right hands.
We pursue every wrongful death claim as if it was our own. With that in mind, we seek out beneficial witnesses, draft questions that get at the heart of the matter, gather all documentary evidence that can support and damage a particular claim, and anticipate the defense’s arguments. By doing this and utilizing the law and legal rules to our advantage, we are able to give our clients the strong representation they need and deserve.
