Compassionate and thorough Representation For The Loss Of A Loved One

Losing a loved one is devastating. Losing them to an accident caused by the negligence of another brings with it intense emotions and a number of complicated questions. While your family is healing, we will immediately and aggressively pursue justice. Whether or not a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed is a question best answered by an experienced wrongful death attorney. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit serves two purposes:

  • First, the lawsuit can ensure that the deceased’s children, spouse, and/or parents who were financially dependent on their loved one will be provided with compensation and financial support.
  • Secondly, a wrongful death lawsuit holds the responsible party accountable for their actions and helps ensure that a similar accident isn’t repeated. 

Wrongful death laws vary by state and can be complex. If you don’t file your claim within a specific time period, you risk losing your right to be compensated. The easiest way to see if you have a viable wrongful death claim is to contact Keller & Keller. You can speak with one of our attorneys directly, who can answer your questions and help you work towards a resolution.

Types of Wrongful Death Compensation

Our attorneys are skilled courtroom advocates trained to recognize and defeat the tactics used by the insurance company in an attempt to limit the compensation they owe you and your family. Our experience in this area of law has taught us how to effectively counter-arguments with carefully planned responses that are designed to protect your case. 

Our goal is to help you obtain the maximum compensation possible. Depending on the circumstances of your case, and whether or not the decedent has a spouse, children, or other family that financially depended on them, we will look to recover for the following types of damages:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Medical and/or hospital bills
  • Funeral costs
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of future earnings and support
  • All applicable lost benefits

Without proper legal guidance to help you pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, you risk losing the opportunity to recover various types of compensation that ensures you and your family a secure future.
