Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases We Handle

The Hite Law Firm assists families with wrongful death cases in a number of circumstances, including:

The common element in all of these cases is the grief and loss that your family has suffered. You could receive a wrongful death settlement if you meet your legal burden of proof.

Survival Actions When Your Loved One Dies

Wrongful death damages compensate your family for your own loss that they sustained when a loved one died. Your loved one may have also suffered between the time of their injury and their death (if they did not die immediately). The estate can file a survival action that seeks to recover these damages on behalf of the estate.

These damages can include:

  • Medical costs to treat your loved one
  • Their pain and suffering from their injury
  • Lost wages between the time of their injury and death
  • The emotional distress that they suffered from the accident or being aware of their impending death

Proving a Wrongful Death Case

The first part of a wrongful death case is proving that the death was actually wrongful. If someone intentionally killed your loved one, it would be easier to prove. Otherwise, you need evidence that shows that someone else was negligent or reckless. Like every other personal injury case, you would need to demonstrate that another party breached the duty of care that they owed to your loved one.

Specifically, you would need to prove:

  • There was a relationship that meant someone else owed your loved one a duty of care
  • That person breached their duty by doing something that would be considered unreasonable under the circumstances
  • Your loved one died
  • Your loved one would not have died had it not been for the wrongful actions of someone else

Why Hire the Hite Law Firm?

Losing a loved one is hard enough. Having to get involved in the legal process will make a tough situation worse. You need an injury attorney who will fight for you while handling your cases with compassion. It is not a balance that every lawyer can manage. At the Hite Law Firm, we strike that balance, working to maximize your financial compensation.
