After the death of your loved one, the last thing on your mind is filing a lawsuit. Naturally, you are grieving and focusing on your loss, your family, and your future. But when a family member’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence or misconduct, then you have a right to seek justice by holding the negligent party accountable.

Pratt Williams, A Professional Law Corporation understands what you’re going through and will fight the legal battle for you. We work tirelessly to ensure the negligent party pays damages for your loss. We know money can never replace your loved one, and it’s difficult to discuss monetary compensation during such a sensitive time, but allow Pratt Williams, A Professional Law Corporation to be your advocate and we will pursue damages to protect your family’s financial security.

What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

To recover damages in a wrongful death action, there are several elements we have to prove:

  • A person, entity, or corporation acted negligently.
  • Your loved one was injured as a result of the negligence.
  • Your loved one died of her or his injuries.
  • You suffered damages as a result of your loved one’s death.

Most wrongful death cases settle outside of court, which can spare your family the stress and ordeal associated with a trial. However, if it’s in your best interest to litigate the case in court, we will provide tenacious advocacy and try your case.

We will do the hard work for you to get you compensation for your loss.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Spouses, domestic partners, or children of the deceased can bring a wrongful death action. If none of these people exists, others such as parents and siblings can pursue a claim. Also, financial dependents may additionally file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Let Our Lawyers Get You the Maximum Damages for Your Loss

Wrongful death claims involve economic and non-economic damages for your loss. Economic damages are the financial losses the death has caused your family. Noneconomic damages represent the emotional costs of losing someone you love. The types and amounts of damages depend upon the specific facts of the case, but may include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills, if any, related to your loved one’s injury
  • Lost wages since the time of the accident
  • Income that your loved one would have made in the future
  • Loss of household services, such as childcare, accounting, household duties, and security
  • Loss of love, friendship, guidance, affection, support, and advice
  • Your pain and suffering

We understand how difficult it may be to consider taking legal action at such an emotionally trying time, but we will do the hard work for you to get you compensation for your loss.
