Seeking Justice For Those Lost Because Of Negligence Or Misconduct
At The Daws Law Firm, our wrongful death attorneys are committed to helping families who have lost loved ones find peace, closure and justice. Too often we meet with people who have lost someone because of a negligent or grossly negligent act of another. We frequently have to tell juries about lives lost and loved ones left behind.
While money cannot change what has happened to your family, financial compensation can help ease the burden of medical bills, funeral costs and lost future earnings. In such cases, it is our honor to seek justice for those who lost their lives and to help prevent repeat acts of negligence by the wrongdoer by shedding light on the misconduct.
What Kind Of Compensation Is Available For Wrongful Death?
When a person dies as the result of someone else’s negligence, members of the family can sue for wrongful death. These cases are separate from any criminal charges that may be filed. In addition, because the standard of proof in wrongful death cases is lower than the criminal standard of beyond a reasonable doubt, it is possible for a family to recover in a wrongful death suit even if the responsible party was found not guilty in a criminal case.
A wrongful death lawsuit can provide you with the compensation to make the transition to the next phase of life easier. Damages in a wrongful death case are generally determined by the financial losses caused by the loss of a loved one. A successful wrongful death case can provide compensation for:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical costs
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of support
- Loss of parental guidance
- Future loss of income
- Pain and suffering
These damages are often proved using testimony from experts such as economists, which is much easier to prepare with a skilled attorney on your side. We understand the difficult time you and your family are going through and will do everything we can to make the process easier for you.
We Can Help Families Through This Difficult Process
After losing a loved one, it can feel impossible to worry about things like costs or expenses. We understand that the time after a death is painful and filled with grief. We fight hard on behalf of the family to ensure someone taken too soon gets the recognition they deserve.
