We understand that the death of a loved one is an extremely difficult experience to go through. Family members need time to grieve and often hold out on pursuing a wrongful death claim. However, the unfortunate truth is that time is of the essence when it comes to gathering information and investigating these cases. Therefore, we strongly urge you to hire an attorney as soon as possible in these instances.
If you are a surviving spouse, child, or parent you may be able to recover a substantial amount for the loss of your loved one. Often times, claims are made for things such as medical expenses prior to death, lost past and future wages for those relying on the support of the victim, and also the loss of love, affection, society, and companionship of the loved one. However, each case is fact specific and depends on a number of different factors.
