When a loved one dies because of another’s carelessness, the victims suffer twice. Not only has a life been lost, but the survivors live with the painful knowledge that the death was unnecessary. Representing families who have lost a loved one requires special attention to the needs of the survivors well beyond making a legal claim for damages. Unless attorneys and their staff are experienced in working with bereaved families, the stress of legal proceedings can make the grief naturally experienced with the death of a loved one unbearable.
We have successfully represented many families in making legal claims for the wrongful deaths of husbands, wives, parents and children. Our attorneys and paralegals are sensitive to the overall needs of our clients in these most difficult of circumstances. We understand the often immediate need to replace a breadwinner’s income and pay medical and funeral bills while coping with the despair of losing a spouse, child or parent. We have extensive experience in protecting large wrongful death recoveries from financial risk. If the need arises, we can work closely with finance companies to “structure” all or part of a wrongful death recovery to provide lifetime monthly payments to replace a wage earner’s income, to provide college educations for children and security in retirement, in addition to cash payments at the time of settlement or trial.
If you have suffered the death of a loved one, we are ready and able to determine if there are grounds for making a legal claim. If so, we can represent you with compassion and understanding while bringing the wrongdoers to Justice in a court of law.
