Personal injury is the legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property.
Injuries that occur at work are usually workers’ compensation cases. These injuries can either come from a sudden traumatic accident or a cumulative/repetitive trauma that can take time to develop from job duties.
When the life of a family member is unintentionally ended because of the misconduct of another, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. It is devastating to lose a loved one, but it is far worse when the death is caused by the negligent, careless, or reckless actions of another person. Don’t face this situation on your own. While life will never be the same, you owe it to yourself and your family to seek justice and fair compensation by retaining the services of an attorney who can help you file a wrongful death claim.
No amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one. You can recover money for the grief, suffering, and loss of a loved one. You can recover financial compensation to pay for any medical treatment which your family member received for the fatal injury, as well as for funeral and burial expenses. You could even receive economic damages to replace the income and other contributions that the decedent would have made to your family. We will stand by you with compassion while aggressively fighting for your rights in the case.
