Wrongful death is one of the hardest and most emotionally devastating circumstances anyone can experience. Taking legal action after the tragic loss of a loved one may not be the first thing that comes to mind after an accident. However, doing so could help prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future. No one can bring your loved one back, but obtaining a wrongful death award to compensate for financial losses and to hold the responsible party liable could help bring closure to this difficult time in your life.
Wrongful death claims and lawsuits can stem from car accidents, motorcycle accident, truck accidents, medical malpractice, and nursing home elder abuse. In some cases, an injured person passes away while an insurance company delays authorizing life-saving surgery. In such tragic instances, the insurance company may be held liable for wrongful death.
In the most devastating circumstances, Dunnion Law is here for you.
For over 40 years, it has been our mission at Dunnion Law to protect those who have lost loved ones due to the negligence or recklessness of others. Nothing enrages us more than to see innocent lives taken and families devastated by grief. Our wrongful death attorneys know that nothing can truly make up for your loss but nevertheless, they are determined to seek maximum compensation for the families whose lives were unexpectedly turned upside down.
Acting on your behalf, we never accept or recommend unreasonable settlement offers or succumb to the delay tactics often used by insurance companies. We demand that your insurance provider do what is right and fully compensate the loved ones of a wrongful death victim as quickly as possible. We will always recommend and proceed with the notion that you should accept nothing less than what is due for your egregious loss.
Damages that we effectively pursue in a wrongful death claim may include financial compensation to cover the costs of medical expenses, funeral costs, burial fees, lost income to the family, and loss of comfort, love, and care from the deceased. In the case of especially serious wrongdoing, punitive damages against the wrongdoer are appropriate and should be pursued.
