A wrongful death occurs when a person dies as a result of the carelessness, negligence, or misconduct of another party. It can be an accident, interaction with a consumer product, medical malpractice, unsafe premises, negligent security, etc. A death in the family is often times more than merely losing a person in one’s life. For a family member, the loss means: losing a leader, a loved one, someone they could confide in, and someone that once made up a big part of their family; these are qualities that can never be replaced. Aside from the costs associated with the death, the family must deal with a loss of income, lack of assistance, a decline in companionship, and the pain and suffering caused as a result of it all. Our law firm knows that losing a loved one unexpectedly can cause you to enter a dark and strenuous time. The last thing you should be concerned with during such a difficult time is how you should deal with the financial hardship caused by the event. Our experienced legal team at the Lawrence C. Hill & Associates is here to help your family seek out the compensation that your family needs, in order to continue on with your life. We handle these types of cases delicately, with the discretion and individual attention warranted by the situation.
It is essential to understand that there is a “statute of limitations” with wrongful death claims, setting a parameter for legal action to be taken; members of the family who qualify for compensation must file their claim within two years from the date of death. Settlement calculations for wrongful death cases are often very time-consuming, so it is imperative that your case is filed quickly, to prevent any unnecessary delays that could end up costing you money and precious time.
