Seek Justice And Compensation For A Loved One’s Death
In the most serious accidents, the victim may not survive the initial accident or may later succumb to his or her injuries. No amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one, but a family member’s death does bring very real economic costs, financial losses and hardship to the family members left behind.
You shouldn’t have to suffer more than you already are by having to shoulder an unexpected financial burden. Let the lawyers at Vocelle & Berg, LLP, hold the responsible parties accountable and work for the money you need while you take care of yourself and your family through this difficult time.
Wrongful Death Suits Can Compensate You For Your Loss
If another party’s negligence causes a serious injury that results in wrongful death, you have the right to file a lawsuit. Proceeds from a lawsuit settlement or judgment can be distributed to the spouse, children, parents, siblings or other blood relatives who depended on the deceased for support.
The amount of damages awarded for wrongful death take in all the costs and harm done to the surviving family members. These damages can include:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Final medical expenses
- Emotional and mental pain and suffering
- Loss of services and support
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of companionship and protection
- Loss of parental guidance
Wrongful Death Claims Require Skilled Attorneys
It can be particularly difficult to prove the negligence of the responsible party in a wrongful death lawsuit, since the accident victim cannot communicate the facts of what happened. Instead, a plaintiffs attorney must rely on other evidence to prove the defendant’s liability, often conducting an independent investigation or accident reconstruction.
The board-certified civil trial specialists at Vocelle & Berg, LLP, have the experience and expertise needed to prepare and present a persuasive case that demonstrates the liable party’s negligence and fault. We put our skills and experience to work in negotiating or litigating a full and fair amount of compensation for victims of wrongful death.
