The death of a family member or loved one is one of the greatest tragedies we can ever be forced to experience in this life. At Easton & Easton, LLP, we understand the pain and anguish that one experiences after such a loss. While no amount of money can ever repair the loss associated with the death of a loved one, monetary compensation can help to provide significant fiscal security in the wake of such a loss and ensure that a wife, husband, child, or other family member has financial stability in the future.
Experienced Representation After Fatal Accidents
The term "wrongful death" means that a death has occurred prematurely and wrongfully because of the negligent or wrongful conduct of another. When a wrongful death occurs, the family members that were dependent on the deceased are entitled to recover for the losses that they will experience as a result of losing their loved one. These recoverable losses include quantifiable economic damages, such as medical and health care expenses, loss of income and burial expenses, as well as non-economic damages, such as loss of care, society, comfort, protection, love, and companionship that one naturally experiences after the passing of a loved one. Proving these damages, however, requires the advocacy and skill of attorneys experienced in handling these types of cases and proving these types of damages with clarity, compassion, and grace.
Proven Case Results
We recently settled a wrongful death case for $2.75 million where the decedent was 55 years old with no wife or children, just two surviving parents in their 80's. The defendants' insurance carrier initially expected to pay no more than $250,000 to settle the case of these 80-year-old parents who had no economic losses as a result of their son's death. But because we demonstrated the unique bond these parents shared with their son by persuasively telling their family story, we were able to significantly increase the value of their case. After seeing how we would present this elderly couple's case before a jury, the insurance company knew that taking the matter to trial could result in a substantially higher verdict based on our advocacy. Consequently, we were able to settle the case for an amount far in excess of our clients' wildest dreams without them having to go through the pain and ordeal of a lengthy trial.
The attorneys at Easton & Easton, LLP have over 70 years of combined experience representing husbands who have lost wives, wives who have lost husbands, parents who have lost children, children who have lost parents, and family members who have lost other family members. From those many years of experience, we have learned not only how to effectively maximize our clients' claims but also how to handle these claims with compassion for our clients' loss and respect for the memory of the deceased. We understand what you are going through and how to best protect your interests.
