When a loved one dies, it is an unfathomable loss. A sudden death may be even more devastating when it results from an accident that could have been prevented.
At Akers Law Offices, we know that nothing a wrongful death attorney can do can make up for your loss because we can't bring back your loved one. What an experienced attorney may be able to do, however, is to help you recover financial stability after that loss. Regardless of whether your loved one earned an income, was a child or a homemaker, their life was valuable.
If you believe you may have a claim, call our office in Charleston, West Virginia, at 304-932-4571 to schedule a complimentary consultation with attorney JB Akers. We will begin working on your case immediately so you can focus on moving forward with your life.
