Catastrophic Injury and Wrongful Death Can Be Caused By…

Wrongful Death & Catastrophic Injury Damages

Catastrophic injuries affect victims and their families. Some injuries may be so severe that the individual requires constant care and attention. Home renovations, vans, wheelchairs and other special equipment to accommodate their injuries may be necessary. The cost is high for all of these remedies.

A personal injury attorney will help you seek compensation in the form of pecuniary loss, which is out-of-pocket money loss directly related to the injury and death.

Compensation can cover such items as:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost earnings for support of a child or spouse

Furthermore, when a loved one dies in a fatal accident, the surviving family members suffer significant “noneconomic losses.” Compensation, then, may also be awarded for items such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship, guidance, and support.


What to Do if You Believe Your Loved One Was the Victim of Wrongful Death Accident

The aftermath of a loved one’s death is extremely difficult to go through, especially when it was unexpected and caused by someone else. The family of the deceased faces the stressful situation of trying to get things in order. Oftentimes, they do not get the time they need to grieve, and holding accountable those responsible may be, understandably, a secondary concern.

But this is the most important time to be vigilant—preservation of evidence and prompt investigation are keys to the success of a wrongful death lawsuit. If you believe your loved one was the victim of a wrongful death, your first step should be to call the attorneys at Gray, Ritter & Graham.

Our team will investigate the circumstances of your loved one’s death, retain experts, gather evidence, and conduct depositions. Insurance companies may try to take advantage of you during this difficult time, but we will aggressively protect your rights.

We will work to determine why your loved one’s death occurred and who is legally responsible.
