Your Legal Options After The Wrongful Death Of A Loved One

When a loved one dies as the result of someone else’s reckless, negligent or illegal misconduct, the surviving family members and estate have the right to seek financial compensation from the liable party. Wrongful death claims often involve a two-step process: first, to determine the extent of liability on the part of the negligent party or parties; second, to determine the full extent of damages to which you are entitled under the law.

Our founder, Craig Lewis, has been representing the rights and interests of plaintiffs in wrongful death actions for more than 47 years. At The Lewis Law Firm, we take a personal approach to every wrongful death case, starting from the initial consultation, reviewing the details and circumstances, and working directly with every client.

Why You Need An Attorney For Your Claim

It is important to talk to an experienced attorney before you talk to any insurance adjuster or representative of the negligent party. The extent of financial damages in wrongful death claims often far-exceeds the amount of settlement initially offered to the surviving spouse or family members.

The amount you receive needs to reflect not only the medical costs of your loved one’s passing, but also:

 

  • Current and future lost income
  • Health and pension benefits
  • Retirement contributions
  • Pain and suffering

“We will work hard to settle your case for full damages out of court. But that isn’t always possible. My record of over 200 trials means that opposing lawyers know who they are up against if they don’t come prepared with a full and fair offer. My record in court means thousands of cases settled fairly out of court.”
