Dealing With A Tragic Loss

The loss of a loved one – it’s something we never want to face, no matter what the circumstances. When someone we love dies because of someone else’s reckless behavior, the emotions we feel can be overwhelming: sadness, grief, anger, frustration. You probably also have a lot of questions. How could something so disastrous occur? What exactly happened? Who was responsible for your loved one’s death?

Don’t give up hope. You have rights. And there may be something you can do to hold whoever caused your loved one’s death accountable for such irresponsible behavior. By law, fatalities caused by negligence are defined as “wrongful deaths.” This means that certain loved ones affected by a wrongful death may be able to pursue legal action against the responsible parties.

Wrongful death cases can be extremely complicated. Knowing what to do can be very confusing. That’s why you need someone who thoroughly understands the laws surrounding wrongful deaths. You need someone who can vigorously defend your family’s rights. You need an experienced, knowledgeable, aggressive attorney who can pursue justice. You need the Slechter Law Firm.

Some of the most common personal injury cases that turn into wrongful death cases are:

When these cases become fatal, the families of the victims may be entitled to financial compensation for the loss of their loved ones. Damages may be awarded for:

  • Funeral costs
  • End of life medical care expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental anguish

The death of a loved one can take a toll on families in many ways. One of them should not be the financial impact of a loved one’s death. This may be your only opportunity for justice. Take action.
