All of us have had our life impacted by the death of a loved one. We all have grieved when someone we are close too or love passes away. Somehow and someway most of us find a way to move on with our lives even with that person being so missed and honored. The passing of a loved one is tragic enough, but when that life is taken from us because of an accident that could have been avoided or a heinous act of neglect or abuse, then the pain and suffering we endure is mostly unbearable. What’s more, in many cases the partner we relied upon for parenting or for family earnings is now gone. The agony then is even more than emotional. It can be one of financial hardship and even poverty that destroys the once secure family foundation we knew prior to the fatal accident. When a loved one is taken unfairly by a case of wrongful death, the family deserves restitution. The family deserves to be secure again and not endangered.This is why you should seek the assistance of the experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorneys of The Lewis Law Group P.A..

A death due to another party’s negligence, abuse or even often the failure to act can result in a wrongful death suit being claimed. Basically it requires the incident has been caused by the intentional or unintentional wrong doing of another. Family members of the deceased then file a case for the damages from their relative’s wrongful death seeking financial compensation. Your attorney in a wrongful death suit must present sufficient evidence that this misconduct or negligence caused the death. An experienced attorney, like those at The Lewis Law Group, will help you bring the needed case materials together. We will determine the amount of compensation you may expect from your loved one’s untimely death.
Many events and actions may create a circumstance entitling you to compensation, among those are medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents in particular when a drunk or impaired driver is involved, boating accidents, product quality issues, slip and fall accidents, nursing home and elder abuse, and other such cases where the injuries suffered resulted in wrongful death.
