How Can Filing A Lawsuit Help You?

In a wrongful death suit, you will seek financial compensation from the party responsible for the accident or injury. As your lawyers, our attorneys will first investigate the cause of the accident and determine who is liable for it. Depending on the facts of the case, that could be a driver, health care professional, property owner, manufacturer or dog owner, for example. The negligent party’s insurance company is typically who you will fight for compensation.

Insurance companies are a business, and, just like any other, they want to make a profit. Paying out compensation to injured or wronged parties reduces the amount of money they have, so they battle hard to deny or undervalue most injury and death claims.

You will need a legal team with the experience and trial skills to recover the compensation you need for your losses from your family member’s death. This may include:

  • Medical expenses prior to death
  • Loss of their income
  • Your emotional trauma
  • Your family member’s pain and suffering prior to death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of the services they provided to the household

Remember that your family will need enough money to cover your related past, present and future losses. This is why you need experienced attorneys on your side. Ours know how to calculate the full value of your claim so that you do not have to worry about lacking funds in the future. They also know how to negotiate with the insurance company for the economic damages you need. If it will not offer a fair settlement, then our lawyers will take it to court.
