Why Should You File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The death of a loved one is tragic regardless of the circumstances surrounding their passing. However, when a loved one is killed because of another person’s negligence, recklessness, or ill intent, the grief is impossible to bear.

While we understand that filing a wrongful death claim will in no way make up for the loss of your loved one, there are a few key reasons why we believe it should be a consideration.

Ensure That Justice is Served

First and foremost, we believe that the parties responsible for the death of your loved one must be held responsible. Although a wrongful death claim may bring up painful memories, it is the only true way to ensure that justice is served. By filing a wrongful death claim and bringing the responsible parties to justice, you honor the memory and life of the deceased.

Provides Closure

One of the most painful aspects of wrongful death is the lack of closure that the friends and family members experience. This lack of closure can complicate the grieving process. Although a wrongful death claim does not take away that grief that you are experiencing, it can help to provide closure to those closest to the deceased.

Financial Compensation

Financial compensation is most likely the least of your concerns as you deal with the recent death of your loved one. However, by filing a wrongful death claim, we will help you obtain the financial compensation that you deserve. Alabama wrongful death damages are limited, by law, to punitive damages, but this compensation can be used to pay for medical expenses, funeral costs, and can also help to provide for your future if you were financially dependent on the deceased.

Wrongful death is one of the most tragic events that anyone could experience. Our team of legal experts would consider it a privilege to honor your loved one by bringing the responsible parties to justice. Contact our team today to schedule your free consultation.
