What are my rights if a loved one has died in an accident?

If you lost a loved one in an accident that was the fault of another, it is understandable for you to want to see justice served, and you have the right to use the legal process to obtain some measure of compensation from the wrongdoer.

Wrongful death lawsuits allow close family members to obtain money damages from a person or entity whose negligence caused the death of their loved one. Damages can be awarded for medical and funeral expenses, loss of companionship, mental pain and suffering, and loss of support.

These types of lawsuits are complex, and obtaining the services of an experienced attorney is of vital importance. There are strict time limits for filing a lawsuit, so do not delay. Joyce & Reyes offers a free initial consultation, and you pay no fee unless we obtain a settlement or verdict in your case.
