Compassionate Wrongful Death Representation

Losing a loved one in an accident is one of the most painful things that can happen. Survivors often feel like they have lost a part of themselves that cannot be replaced. In addition to the emotional pain, the loss of a family member can bring financial problems and many other stresses.

If you lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence, you know that no amount of money will make up for your loss. The main thing our legal system can do is allow you to pursue compensation for lost income, medical and funeral expenses, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and other damages. Our firm is here to help you obtain as much compensation as possible to offset the stress, allow you to grieve and provide for future family needs.

We Will Deal With The Insurance Company

If you lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness, that person’s (or entity’s) insurance company will work to deny or minimize your wrongful death claim. Company representatives may try to offer you a small settlement, get you to sign papers or ask you for recorded statements. We tell our clients not to do any of those things until they talk to their lawyer.

If you or a family member is thinking about pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit, you will benefit from having an attorney who understands what you are going through, who understands insurance company tricks and tactics, and who will fight for you and your family. Hertel Law, S.C., is here to work for you.
