Wrongful death cases are highly emotional and painful. Losing a loved one unexpectedly is always difficult, but death due to negligence or other preventable problems compounds the hurt.
At GSJones Law Group, P.S., we know the emotionally charged nature of a wrongful death. As your wrongful death attorney, we will approach your case with delicacy as we work to compensate you for your loss.
Understanding Wrongful Death Cases
You may not file a wrongful death case unless you are a close relative of the deceased.
We know that a settlement can’t make up for your pain and sense of loss. Yet, many times the relative’s death puts a financial burden on the family. Lost income, funeral expenses and often medical expenses are beyond the financial abilities of most families. In addition, your lawsuit or claim may lead to changes that prevent other deaths.
Wrongful death covers a wide variety of cases. For example, if your family member was killed by someone during the course of a crime, but there wasn’t enough evidence to convict, you can bring a wrongful death suit against the person. Other common wrongful death situations include:
- Medical malpractice
- Faulty equipment
- Unsafe working conditions
- Automobile accidents
If you suspect that your loved one’s death occurred because of the actions of another person, contact a wrongful death lawyer immediately.
