Wrongful Death Claims are a type of “PERSONAL INJURY” claim and require that you prove the accident and resulting death are due to the “NEGLIGENCE” of another. At our initial consultation, we will discuss how this part of the legal system works, we will answer all of your questions, and we will develop a plan together on how to navigate this system to achieve your goals. We will be available every step of the way to help you achieve a successful resolution, whether that be a settlement or a Court Award.
“LEGAL NEGLIGENCE” is more than the common definition of carelessness; LEGAL NEGLIGENCE has a specific legal definition made up of a few elements that must be met to have a viable claim.
The focus and purpose of WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS is to compensate losses for survivors (wife, children, certain family members) and can include dependency loss of earnings, pain in suffering for loss of a loved one, and other damages depending on the facts.
We work on WRONGFUL DEATH CASES on a “contingency basis” which means first, we win for you by obtaining a settlement or a favorable Court Award. Then we are paid a fixed percentage as the attorney fee based upon the size of the settlement or Court Award. So we are only paid if we win.
