Trial lawyers with the resources to pursue the compensation you need after a wrongful death
As trial lawyers, we prepare all of our cases, including wrongful death cases, as if they will go to trial. This is not a ploy - many of our wrongful death cases have proceeded to trial. When insurance companies understand that an opposing lawyer has the resources, knowledge, and willingness to try a case, they are more likely to offer a reasonable settlement. However, when the amount offered is not adequate compensation for our clients' losses, we are prepared to take the case to a judge or jury, where we have had considerable success getting the needed compensation.
Our law firm consults with experts who allow us to build a strong case for compensation. Economic specialists calculate the financial impact of the death on the family. They estimate the value of a spouse's non-economic contribution to the home. When a surviving family member needs to hire someone to undertake childcare, grocery shopping, leaf raking, and all the other daily chores involved in running a house, they need to be compensated for the cost of these services. The economic and emotional costs of a wrongful death cannot be accurately calculated. However, our law firm uses the resources available to us to determine how much it will cost to fill the hole left behind after a wrongful death.
