The wrongful death of a loved one is very painful, especially when it happens as a result of someone else's negligence. Whether this is the result of one person's negligence or the collective mistakes of many people, the impact is the same. People can cope with an accident or old age to a greater degree than they can a death that involves another person's actions. An accidental death seems more like murder, and the regular legal system seems incapable of addressing this disaster. This is where litigation can come into play in an effort to soften the blow, to a small degree, by addressing the financial implications of the loss.
If such a tragedy occurs, our legal team can help make sure that the family and the Estate are legally protected and compensation is forthcoming. There may be expenses such as a funeral or grief counselling that need to be addressed, as well as loss of income and financial support, loss of services, and loss of care, guidance and companionship that need to be reconciled. After enduring the blow of bereavement, you don't want to be hit with the full financial implications that can arise. We are here to help, and we have the resources to assist you every step of the way.
