Our “No Win/No Pay” Policy
Our personal injury law firm has a strict “No Win/No Pay” policy. This means that if we don’t successfully negotiate a settlement on your behalf or win our case in court, you pay us nothing. It’s our investment in your case and your healing.
It’s unfortunate, but family members discover far too late that most personal injury law firms take home more money than their clients after a settlement or a win in court. To us, this is simply wrong. We promise to never take more money on a case than our clients.
What is a Wrongful Death Claim?
When someone dies as a result of another person’s negligence, they can legally bring forth a wrongful death claim. In the past, under common law, you could not bring a lawsuit against an at-fault party. The Wrongful Death Act created this legal anomaly in which the estate of the deceased surviving family members can pursue whoever was responsible for their loved one’s passing.
The wrongful death claim often arises after situations where there would otherwise have been viable personal injury litigation against the guilty party but that individual passes away before being tried or convicted in court.
Wrongful Death Damages You Can Recover
If you are the victim of wrongful death, then your family may be entitled to compensation for the following types of damages:
- Medical and Funeral Expenses – Survivor may recover damages of expenses paid
- Past Lost Support – From injury to the time of death
- Future Loss of Support – Since the date of death
- Loss of Companionship – Surviving spouses
- Lost Parental Companionship – Minor children
- Emotional Distress – Mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life
There are obvious factors associated with how juries may award compensation such as the age of the injured person, life expectancy, occupation, and more.
The McCloud Law Firm can help you recover damages for your loss. To discuss with one of our wrongful death attorneys, please call and schedule a free consultation.
