Wrongful Death

For most of us, death is unexpected. Even when it has been predicted or diagnosed and signs are fairly clear, the hour of the day comes as a shock. But when death occurs entirely without warning, we are more inclined to see it as an accident than something inevitable, which in our grief we might want to move beyond. Unfortunately, grief and mourning can cloud our judgment and prevent us from taking appropriate legal action in a timely manner. This is where Carter Law can help you.

If your family has experienced the tragedy of a wrongful death, please call us. If you are unsure of whether or not the circumstances of your loved one’s death qualify as wrongful death, call us and we can help determine the appropriate legal action for you to take.

Wrongful death and personal injury cases can be difficult and complex. Insurance companies want to limit their exposure or liability when a serious injury or death occurs. These companies will typically hire a team of attorneys whose job it is to aggressively undermine each aspect of the plaintiff’s claim. We have been combating those tactics on behalf of injured families for over 25 years.

Regardless of where, when, or how your wrongful death occurred, we are prepared to represent your case. We will work tirelessly to provide you with the service your deceased family member deserves. Our wrongful death attorney has helped individuals and families with injuries and deaths caused by:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Dog Bites / Animal Attacks
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Premises Liability / Slip and Falls
  • Personal Injury / Wrongful Death Litigation
  • Construction Site Injuries
  • DUI-DWI / Alcohol-Related Crashes
  • Products Liability / Dangerous and Defective Products
  • Trucking Litigation / Semi-Truck Crashes
  • Workplace Injuries
  • Other

In each case, there are a number of factors that determine reparation. We are here to make sure every category that applies to your situation is taken into consideration. Some of the more common damages we seek to recover include:

  • Expense associated with the death, e.g., medical and funeral
  • Loss of support
  • Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
  • Loss of inheritance from an untimely death
  • Loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection or care suffered by the survivor of the decedent
  • Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others

Remember, if you have lost a loved one, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law. Knowing how much you have suffered from this tragic loss is something you may never be able to fully communicate, but we can ensure that every type of suffering the law recognizes is applied to your case. Jeremy will do his best to ensure that your health, whether that be physical, mental, or emotional, is addressed and covered, not only in the immediate aftermath of your loss, but for years to come.
