Was Your Loved One The Victim Of A Fatal Accident? Our Legal Team Is Here For You.
The death of a loved one is not something that is easy to deal with. These types of situations can be even more overwhelming if the death was the result of someone else’s negligence. These cases are deemed “wrongful death” matters. This means that the death was wrongful in the sense that it would not have happened except for the careless or intentional actions of another person or party.
Nothing can bring your loved one back after a fatal accident. However, financial support can provide some much needed stability as you cope with your loss. At the law firm of Johnson, Mulholland, Cochrane, Cochrane, Yung & Engler, P.L.C., we are dedicated personal injury advocates who are sensitive to clients’ needs. We work closely with them in the pursuit of justice in fatal accident cases.
Our attorneys will work to file a lawsuit within the strict time frames that may exist regarding these types of claims. By getting in touch with us as soon as possible, we can determine how to move forward with your case in a manner that maximizes your chances of a successful financial recovery.
What Compensation Is Possible In A Wrongful Death Claim?
It may be possible to claim compensation for the losses associated with a fatal accident. This can defray the financial impact of the loss and bring some measure of accountability to the at-fault party.
Available types of compensation may include:
- Medical expenses incurred prior to death
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of lifetime earnings (if the deceased was a family income earner)
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of care and companionship
You may find it difficult to think about your legal options while grieving the loss of a family member. That is perfectly understandable. However, because we know how important it is to ensure you are properly represented after the death, we urge you not to wait too long before contacting an attorney. Our lawyers and staff will do everything they can to support you during this trying time.
