Wrongful death attorney who can help you get justice for the loss of your loved one
There are many types of personal injury accidents caused by negligence that can result in serious injuries. And some of these injuries can be fatal. Losing a loved one under these circumstances is emotionally devastating for family members and can leave them in financial difficulty. The Law Offices of Scott M. Miller, PLLC can offer legal advice for families during this tough time and help them recover damages (financial compensation) for the loss of their loved one.
A wrongful death is one that was caused by someone's negligent or reckless behavior. A wrongful death can occur as a result of any type of accident, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
No amount of money can bring back your loved one. But taking legal action against the person whose negligence led to your loved one's fatal injuries can help hold that person accountable. And recovering damages can help you and your family recover from the financial stress caused by your loss.
When you've lost a loved one to fatal injuries caused by the negligence of another person or company, attorney Scott M. Miller can help you hold them accountable.
We have the experience that gets results
Wrongful death cases can be complicated. In order to be successful, a wrongful death case must be able to establish that:
- One party had duty of care (example: a driver is required to follow the rules of the road)
- That duty was breached (example: a driver had been drinking)
- The breach led to a loved one's death
- There were damages associated with the loss.
Our law firm has the experience needed to find the evidence that establishes negligence led to your loved one's accident. Our investigators review medical records, autopsy reports, accident reports, safety records and all other documents related to your loved one's loss. They will identify and interview any witnesses. We will also consult experts as needed to help prove our case.
We want to help you get justice
When we can establish that the other party had a duty of care and acted negligently, we can help you recover damages. In general, wrongful death claimants can seek compensation for medical and funeral expenses, lost income your loved one would have earned, estate administration costs, pain and suffering, loss of companionship and other costs.
We encourage you to get legal advice as soon as possible following the loss of your loved one. This helps to preserve valuable evidence and get witness statements while they still remember important details. We can't change the past. But we can build a strong case to help your loved one get justice.
