Personal injury claims can help victims and their families get compensation after someone else’s negligence causes them to suffer serious illnesses or injuries. When negligence leads to fatal illnesses or injuries, victims’ families can file wrongful death claims to be compensated for their medical bills, lost wages, and loss of companionship, support, and love.
However, wrongful death claims are often treated differently than personal injury claims by insurance companies. Because the settlements are often bigger, insurance companies may push back harder against victims’ families when they pursue compensation. In addition, the deaths of victims can make it more difficult for their families to prove what happened, especially if there were few witnesses.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk wrongful death attorneys know how to investigate wrongful death claims to maximize the chances of getting compensation for grieving families. We do that by collecting evidence that proves another party’s negligence caused the fatal illness or injury, and then we calculate how much the family deserves for their loss. When our law firm represent you, we’ll negotiate with the insurance company to make sure your claim gets a fair look and a fair outcome from their adjusters.
Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be a difficult time for families, especially when it puts them in a financial bind. We know what you’re going through, and we want to help. Call us today for a free consultation.
