Proving Another Was At Fault
Our lawyers must prove the cause of the accident was the fault of another. To do this, our team of investigators interview witnesses and gather evidence as soon as possible after an accident. A delay can result in valuable evidence being lost or witnesses forgetting important details. So the sooner you call us, the better.
Proving the Extent of Your Losses
Damages in a wrongful death case include medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and long-term economic loss. We work with forensic economists to understand the lifetime economic loss to your family that this tragic death has caused. This is critical to providing your family with the money you will need.
Providing Personal Attention
While your wrongful death claim is pending, we will keep you informed of the progress being made in your case. Our lawyers never agree to a settlement unless you have approved it in advance.
