From your perspective, it may seem obvious who is at fault for the loss of your loved one. However, insurance companies are not easy to deal with, as they can often make an accident case more complicated than it has to be. We investigate your case to establish liability by providing the following types of evidence:
Accident and/or police reports
Video footage and/or photos
Medical reports prior to death
Our legal team can put together a strategy that clearly establishes who was at fault for the death of your spouse or family member. The evidence we provide will make it difficult for the insurance company to turn down your claim.
When someone dies in a fatal car accident, your family loses much more than just a vehicle and that person’s income. The long-term consequences of the other driver’s negligence go far beyond those tangible losses. As such, you may be able to claim financial compensation for the following in a wrongful death case:
If your loved one was taken to the hospital in an ambulance or underwent extensive medical procedures, you may be able to claim those, as well as other related medical expenses. Make sure you keep all of your medical reports, bills, and receipts.
Your family may have to pay all funeral expenses, such as viewing and burial costs, service fees, hearse transportation, embalming, casket, and other preparations. The average cost of a funeral today is between $5,000 and $15,000. You may be able to account for all of the costs associated with burying your loved one.
When a loved one dies, it can affect your family’s standard of living and finances. You may be able to claim lost income, lost retirement, loss of consortium, and/or loss of parenting. In addition, you may also be entitled to compensation for emotional and mental distress for the suffering the deceased experienced before passing away.
How much your case is worth depends on the circumstances of the accident, who was at fault, and the full extent of your losses. Although it is impossible to determine the exact value of your losses without first reviewing your case, our law firm will fight to get you the maximum compensation possible.
