Considerations to Make Before Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
Wrongful death lawsuits are based on whether the parties held responsible acted in a negligent manner. If the defendant neglected their duty of care, they can be held liable. To effectively determine they were responsible, your attorney will build a case to prove the defendant violated their duty of care to the defendant and this breach of duty directly resulted in the death of the victim. The plaintiff who files a wrongful death claim must also show how they suffered financially or emotionally as a result of the death.
Lowe Law Group is staffed with relentless, result-driven attorneys who have one goal in mind: allowing our clients to move forward with their lives by collecting the compensation they deserve. We know the death of a loved one is difficult to cope with, and we will take every step to provide skillful legal guidance to secure a favorable outcome for your claim.
