If you have suffered a serious injury or a family member has died as a result of the negligence of another person, then you may be entitled to bring a claim against the responsible person or company for fair compensation. Before moving forward with this type of legal claim, it is important that you understand how to file personal injury and wrongful death claims and what to expect from the process as a claimant.
Our team works with clients who have suffered injuries and lost loved ones in a variety of accident types, including:
When a minor is injured because of another party’s negligence, his or her parents may seek compensation on the child’s behalf through a personal injury claim. For example, parents of an infant born with a birth injury that could have been prevented if medical staff had taken greater care before, during, or after the child’s birth may be entitled to receive compensation for their child’s medical bills and need for specialized support, care and treatment later in life.
Through a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for your medical bills, the wages you lost and those you won’t be able to earn in the future because of your injury or disability, and all other expenses related to the injury. With a wrongful death claim, you can seek compensation for your loved one’s medical and funeral expenses and lost wages as well as your own damages caused by the death, such as your grief and sorrow as well as your loss of society which the law defines as your loss of the affection, love and support of your family member who suffered an untimely death due to the negligence or malpractice of another person or entity.
Although you can pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim on your own, your claim will have a better chance of resulting in an appropriate settlement if you work with an experienced attorney. We will take the time to meet with you in depth and investigate the facts and circumstances of your case. We will also hire experts, if necessary, to assist in the investigation and prosecution of the case while you focus on recovering from your injury or grieving the loved one you lost.
When you lose a loved one because of another party’s negligence or you suffered damages because of your own injury sustained in a preventable accident, consider pursuing monetary compensation for the damages you suffered through a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
