Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. It is a tragic fact that wrongful death often occurs as a result of negligence.  One of these lawsuit can’t bring the person you love back, but they can help you get compensation for your loss.

How a Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help Residents of Fayetteville

A wrongful death action arises when a person is killed as the result of negligence, product liability, or malice on the part of another person. Negligence might occur in a situation like an automobile or airplane accident, an accident at a workplace, or medical malpractice. The manufacturer of dangerous products might be strictly liable for deaths caused by faulty or unreasonably dangerous products, such as an unsafe automobile or drugs with dangerous side effects. Intentional violence that causes death can also be covered by a lawsuit. In that situation the person or persons responsible may also be prosecuted under criminal law. Close family members and sometimes other dependents can sue to recover damages that result from a passing.

Families of the victim often feel pursing legal action will only increase their feelings of distress. Some families do not immediately realize the impact a passing can have on their lives, so contacting a wrongful death attorney is always a good idea. Our lawyers understand the delicacy of wrongful death suits and will try to resolve the wrongful death lawsuit as quickly as possible in a sensitive, tactful manner.

Lawsuits can recover the expenses associated to the death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship, and other factors that will increase burden on the family already suffering a grave loss. Since all suits will differ, we can help you determine what compensation each family member can seek based on the relationship between the victim and the individual survivor.
