Losing a family member is never easy, but losing a family member as the result of another person's reckless or negligent behavior can be emotionally devastating for the family. Our attorneys understand this, and we work diligently to recover financial damages for the loss of a loved one. We recognize that no legal settlement or trial verdict will ever make up for the tragic loss of a loved one, but our firm will make sure that your rights, benefits and legal remedies are protected and preserved.
Damages can include lost earnings and financial support, compensation for the victim's medical expenses, burial costs, and reasonable compensation for the loss of love, companionship, and moral support. The kind of (and percentage amount) of recovery that each plaintiff can receive depends on their biological relationship to the deceased. Damage awards also include interest from the date that the person died.
