We Know What It Takes to Win® Wrongful Death Cases
According to CNBC and John Hopkins University, over 250,000 people die from medical errors every year in the United States, making it the third leading cause of death. Other common causes of accidental or wrongful deaths include:
- Car accidents
- Trucking and bus accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Building fires
- Workplace accidents
- Slips/trips and falls
- Defective consumer products
- Contaminated food
- Defective medical devices
- Dangerous/contaminated prescription drugs
The presence of negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct by an individual or company is most commonly the cause of wrongful deaths.
Accidental/wrongful death compensation
The rights of plaintiffs to pursue wrongful death claims are subject to the law of the state they occur in, and the types of damages recovered can significantly. Compensation that may be available includes:
- Full economic and non-economic value of the life of the victim
- Loss of companionship
- Value of support and services
- Punitive damages
- Burial and funeral expenses
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering of the deceased
Lawsuits associated with wrongful death, because of their enormous value, require thorough investigation. At Montlick we have extensive experience pursuing wrongful death cases from start to finish, and we know what it takes to secure the compensation grieving families need.
Don't Make a Costly Mistake--Call Montlick.
Montlick works hard to gather all necessary evidence for a solid case within the statute of limitations. Contact us today to get started.
The clock begins ticking on the statutes of limitations in wrongful death cases on the date of the incident that caused the victim’s death, but the amount of time a person has to file the claim varies significantly depending on the relevant state laws.
We advise clients to take action as soon as possible as some states have shorter statutes of limitations than others. In auto accident cases, insurance policies owned by the victim or the victim’s family often also have timely notification requirements. This means if a claim is not filed in the time given in the insurance policy, the family of the deceased may lose valuable compensation.
Important evidence necessary for a case can disappear or become destroyed, and witnesses can go missing or forget what happened as more time passes as well, increasing the importance of acting quickly.
