Nothing can ever prepare us for the sudden death of a loved one. When that death is caused by someone’s fault, it is even more difficult to understand or accept. At Caress Law Group, we certainly cannot erase the pain of a wrongful death, but we may be able to help your family obtain the fair compensation you need and deserve. In addition, our law firm may be able to help you make a difference by forcing changes that will hopefully be able to prevent the same type of incident that caused your loved one’s death from happening to someone else.
Wrongful death cases are similar to personal injury cases. They both involve damages caused by someone’s fault; however, personal injury cases involve just that – injuries to a surviving person. Conversely, when the injuries result in death, it is considered a wrongful death claim. Typically, the surviving spouse, parent or other family member brings the claim on behalf of the deceased person and the damages available to be recovered are set out in wrongful death statutes.
At Caress Law Group, we are devoted to helping the families of wrongful death victims. We will get to know you and your family so that we can understand how your life has changed as a result of the death. We have a network of experts who can investigate the accident or negligence and determine the liable parties. We will explain to the insurance company or to the jury how this wrongful death has affected your family both financially and emotionally.
A significant part of our law firm’s practice is devoted to wrongful death actions because we want to, and feel like we can, make a real and lasting difference and bring you the resources you need as you deal with the devastating loss of a loved one.
If a loved one has been the victim of a wrongful death, we would be happy to assist you in any way that we can, but you have to take the first step and reach out to us. You may be concerned about whether you have a case or not, or you may feel a bit overwhelmed by all that may be involved with a claim, or you may be uncomfortable with contacting a lawyer at all. We completely understand. Please know that we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your situation, no matter how big or small it may be, and no matter whether it turns out to be a case that we can help with or not. If we don’t think that you have a case where we can help, we will tell you that and we will explain to you why. On the otherhand, if we do think that you have a case, or that you may have a case, we will tell you that as well, and we will also discuss with you how we may be able to help you. Whatever your situation, please do not hesitate to contact us and know that we view it as an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to help you in any way that we can.
