Wrongful death cases can be complex: The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein will guide you through the process
You don't have to accept the response of the insurance company. Tell them you mean business by contacting us today: 1-877-294-6813. If you are represented by the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, we will fight for your rights to be compensated for the wrongful death or fatal accident your family is coping with.
The personal representative of the deceased's estate may bring a claim to recover damages for wrongful death. Remember, a wrongful death suit is a civil action, not to be confused with a criminal charge such as manslaughter or murder. (An illegal action may be involved, such as drunk driving.)
Establishing a wrongful death case
The following are questions that need to be answered affirmatively to proceed with a wrongful death case:
- Was economic loss suffered as a result of the death?
- Was there conscious pain and suffering by the decedent before death?
- Was the death the direct result of a negligent or otherwise wrongful act of another party?
These are just some of the factors that can determine if your loss of a loved one entitles you to file a wrongful death claim.
Confront wrongful death with personal legal representation. Call Joe today.
A wrongful death can abruptly turn a family upside-down. But your rights are firmly rooted in the law. We can help you get back on your feet. Our experienced attorneys can help with all aspects to support your case.
