Auto Accident Wrongful Death Case Valuation

ictims who have been silenced through death.
Wrongful death lawsuits are a large part of legal practice in general. Whether it’s from medical malpractice or prescription drug reactions, there are always wrongful death lawsuits that are ongoing and justified. The term itself is self-explanatory. When someone else’s negligence results in the death of another person, the death is “wrongful.” It means that the victim’s death would not have occurred were it not for the negligent actions of another person. We commonly see wrongful death cases in a variety of settings, but wrongful death cases are extremely common in auto accidents.
Let’s take a common scenario for example. A drunk driver is obviously negligent. They are driving while under the influence of alcohol and this means that their judgment and reflexes are impaired. They willingly became intoxicated to the point where they shouldn’t drive a car and then proceeded to drive that car anyway. As a result, they hit a law abiding driver head on and the result is the death of the innocent driver who was obeying all traffic rules. This is a wrongful death without question. Lawyers see this type of case all the time. Loved ones of the victim seek justice for someone who has lost their life because of someone else’s negligence on the road.
We are passionate about defending the memory of our clients who lost their lives in scenarios just like this. We know that no amount of money is going to bring the person back or give them the chance to enjoy life again. While sad, it doesn’t mean that loved ones are helpless to pursue some legal measures to bring peace to the memory of the victim. By pursuing a wrongful death case in this instance, they are not only fighting on behalf of their own loved one but they are ensuring that other people won’t become a victim in the future. Wrongful death cases are pursued in this scenario all the time and with comforting results. We win. You’ll never find us giving up on this type of case where a negligent person took the ultimate gift of life away from an innocent victim.
Settlements are also common in these types of cases where the negligent party realizes that they were in the wrong. Unfortunately, people are sometimes willing to settle for much less than they are owed in this instance. When you hire us on to represent you in a wrongful death case, you can rest assured that we are going to go after the highest dollar amount that we can get. We want someone to pay for what they did to your loved one. Any dollar amount is too low when the innocent victim paid the ultimate price for nothing. Wrongful death cases are at the top of our priority lists. Someone who is so negligent that they take another human life needs to be held accountable under the law. In some cases, there will be criminal AND civil penalties shelled out to the guilty party. We completely agree with this. When an innocent person loses their life in an auto accident, the offender needs to pay the maximum penalty, both financially and criminally.
