Anyone who has lost a loved one due to an accidental death knows what a difficult and painful experience it is. While no amount of money can ever replace a spouse, child, or parent, close relatives are entitled to financial compensation and should be aware of their rights under Arizona law. Residents of Arizona can depend on our wrongful death lawyers to obtain compensation for their extreme loss.
WHY DO I NEED A WRONGFUL DEATH LAWYER
Arizona law limits the amount of time that family members are given to file a claim against the party responsible for the death of their loved one. A lawyer will analyze the details and evidence of the case, determining whether it is possible to bring a wrongful death claim and what compensation can be sought. Unfortunately, in many instances, survivors do not realize they have a valid claim against those who contributed to their loved one’s accidental death. Some families unknowingly jeopardize their claim by not preserving crucial testimony or evidence, or signing a release.
When you enlist the services of our law firm, our wrongful death lawyers will fight to ensure that every family member receives the complete compensation they deserve. We work in your best interest, unlike insurance companies, who often want to settle a claim as quickly and cheaply as possible.
WHAT IS A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?
When someone loses his or her life due to the negligence or wrongful act of someone else, the surviving family is deprived of not only affection and companionship, but, in some cases, a financial provider. Wrongful death can be caused by an auto accident, a truck accident, a motorcycle accident, drunk driver, medical malpractice, and other people’s negligence, among other causes. Relatives are often burdened by mental anguish, remaining medical expenses, and funeral expenses. A wrongful death claim can be filed by the surviving spouse, children, or parents of the deceased when their loved one has been killed by the negligence or wrongful act of another person or business.
No dollar amount can be placed on a human life that has been lost. For this reason, claims are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The amount the responsible party must pay is determined by several factors, including the nature of the survivor’s relationship with the deceased person, the length of that relationship, the closeness and dependency between the survivor and the deceased person, and the degree to which the survivor has been affected by the death.
Those who have lost a loved one in the Mesa or Phoenix area can utilize our wrongful death lawyers to recover losses for medical bills, funeral expenses, and loss of income and benefits. Furthermore, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for the personal suffering, emotional distress, and grief caused by their loss.
