WRONGFUL DEATH LAWYERS
Some accidents and resulting injuries are so serious that they have the potential to lead to death. In these cases, you should not be forced to bear the burden of the cost of all arrangements for your loved one. These accidents are devastating in more than just a financial sense and your life will never be the same again. If your loved one was killed in any type of accident, you may be entitled to compensation for their death.
What Classifies as Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence of another person’s actions. Those people who were dependent on, or were a beneficiary of, the person killed in the accident may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim to receive monetary compensation. This amount often covers all medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship. It can often be difficult for the family of someone killed to move on after a traumatic accident, due to both emotional and financial effects. While no amount of compensation can bring back your loved one, receiving an amount to help cover all overwhelming costs can assist in beginning to pick up the pieces after the death.
Wrongful Death Representation
Accidents leading to wrongful death actions often include:
- Automobile Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Aviation Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Defective Products
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Railroad Accidents
Each wrongful death action works with a specific set of facts and part of the law, which makes it important to discuss with an experienced personal injury attorney. Negligence actions alone can often be difficult to bring without a solid basis for the action, which is why an attorney is vital to any wrongful death case. A personal injury attorney is the person who will interview all witnesses to the accident and determine whether a viable claim can be brought against the person responsible. In Alabama, certain actions may be barred if the victim played any role in the accident, so it is important to make sure all witnesses and facts of the case are thoroughly discussed before a claim is brought.
Family of the Victim
The family of the victim or their estate can seek compensation for some of the following after losing a loved one due to the negligence of another person:
- Medical Bills
- Funeral Expenses
- Loss of Wages
- Loss of Benefits and Future Gains
- Loss of Emotional Support
Affixing value to loss of an earned wage or benefit can be a fairly simple procedure. Assigning a monetary value to the loss of emotional support, or love, is entirely different. Our team understands this and will delicately handle all important details and facts about the case, to ensure you receive the amount of compensation you deserve.
