Unfortunately, auto accidents and truck accidents sometimes lead to the death of innocent parties, leading to claims for wrongful death. Our law firm has considerable experience in representing the estates and surviving relatives of the victims of such accidents. Although similar in many ways to personal injury claims by victims who survived their wreck, the claims for wrongful death have their own unique aspects recognized in the law.
Claims by the estate of the deceased party are allowed for damages which he or she incurred prior to their death, such as pain and suffering. However, in addition to these, the survivors may have their own damages for which they need compensation.
The loss of a loved family member who may be the bread winner for the family can be devastating financially. Even the loss to the family of ordinary family activities can put unexpected burdens on the survivors. Each case has its own set of losses and special circumstances, and we make every effort to determine the extent of the loss, and to receive adequate compensation for the clients and survivors.
If you or a family member has been involved in an accident, give us a call and we will be happy to meet with you free of charge and evaluate the case. If we agree to take your case, we will do so on a contingent fee basis, meaning that we only get paid if there is a monetary settlement or other recovery on your behalf. Please call us at (843) 449-9417 or contact us online.
