Options for a family after losing someone to a fatal accident

After the unexpected death of a loved one in a fatal accident, you may feel at a complete loss, both emotionally and financially. While there is no amount of compensation that can bring back a loved one or alleviate a family's grief, a wrongful death claim can help a family recoup financial losses that resulted from the loss of a family member. While a fatal accident can leave a West Virginia family with a financial burden for months, or even years, following an accident, our experienced team can help.

It can be especially difficult when a loved one dies as a result of another person's actions. A speeding driver, dangerous road conditions or medical malpractice may contribute to an accident that was ultimately preventable. If your loved one was killed because of reckless, negligent or dangerous actions, you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim. We can help West Virginiaresidents determine if they have a case and advise them on how to move forward.

Examples of a wrongful death accident can include a fatal motor vehicle crash, hunting accident, nursing home negligence or mining accident. Regardless of his or her income level or age, your loved one's life had value. Our job is to help clients seek compensation for the losses they have suffered, which can include companionship, consortium, support and future wages.

Even if you are unsure whether your family has a valid case, or if the circumstances of your loved one's accident are unclear, it is important to seek a lawyer's opinion. A thorough examination of the fatal accident will likely reveal whether you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim.Explore our firm's websiteto learn more about how we can assist you during this difficult time.
