The death of a loved one is always a difficult situation. However, when the death is a result of the negligence or fault of another person or entity, the difficulty in dealing with the grief and trying to make sense of the situation can be overwhelming.
Snyder & Wenner Personal Injury Attorneys are experienced in helping the survivors of these types of tragic events in obtaining fair compensation for their loss. This is not an area of the law where representing yourself is a wise decision. It is complicated, complex, and often a very lengthy and difficult process.
There are several benefits to hiring one of our experienced wrongful death lawyers. Understanding these advantages is important in making the best decision for you and your family.
Valuing the Settlement
There are several types of damages that can be included in a wrongful death suit. The compensatory damages include medical and funeral expenses, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and possibly property loss.
In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded to the survivors as a way to punish the at-fault party or parties. Knowing how to assess both compensatory and punitive damages, if applicable, is just a small part of what our lawyers do for clients.
Gather Evidence and Prove the Case
In a wrongful death case, our attorneys gather evidence to show how the other party is at fault. This is a complex issue that requires both an understanding of the law and knowledge of specific procedures.
We also work with expert witnesses and subject matter specialists to prove your case. Strong representation at pre-litigation negotiation or mediation can help to speed up the settlement and prevent the family from the cost and the stress of a court case.
