Wrongful Death

When a loved one is killed due to the wrongful actions or inactions of another, certain surviving members of the family may have claims for wrongful death. A death leaves a family looking for answers. The emotional trauma and financial impact are often overwhelming. A wrongful death claim will never replace what a family has lost, but a successful wrongful death claim may provide some relief to a family left behind. Our free consultation policy includes consultation on potential wrongful death claims.

Wrongful death claims require special handling. They can arise out of many circumstances. The death might be an accident or an intentional killing. These cases are governed by a specific set of laws. Our evaluation of wrongful death claims must consider the manner of death and what the family has lost; for example, loss of love, care, comfort, support, companionship, as well as monetary accumulations like lost wages. We also evaluate what the loved one has left behind, including medical bills and funeral costs.

Just as with personal injury cases, we are not afraid to take wrongful death cases to trial. We have the emotional intelligence and skill to evaluate wrongful death claims and advise families.

Let Sound Injury Law be your advocates and guides through the process of holding the responsible parties accountable. Please contact us today to schedule a free consultation.
