Fatal Automobile Accidents Attorney
In the event an accident has resulted in the loss of a loved one, our staff is here to provide you with legal guidance as you deal with the heartache you and your family are experiencing.
We work to recover the full amount available from all responsible parties and resources in the event of a Wrongful Death action. A Wrongful Death Claim is created when someone’s death results from the negligence or misconduct of another individual while driving an automobile. Many state laws provide for immediate family members of the deceased to initiate a Wrongful Death Claim and recover damages from pain and suffering, lost wages, mental anguish, loss of companionship, medical costs, and other expenses. While nothing can ever replace the loss of a loved one, a family may face considerable financial difficulties without the support of the deceased. The compensation provided by a Wrongful Death Lawsuit can help ease this financial burden.
In certain circumstances, in addition to compensatory damages, a court may also choose to impose punitive damages. Punitive damages are appropriate in situations where a party’s intentional, reckless, or grossly negligent actions result in a Wrongful Death. These damages serve to punish the offending party, as well as discourage others from behaving similarly in the future.
The Wrongful Death attorneys at Jones Brown, are experienced at recovering compensation that recognizes the value of the deceased and helps the surviving family recover from their loss.
