Wrongful Death Lawyer
Losing a loved one is always painful, but when they die because of the harmful or negligent actions of another, it makes it even worse. Although nothing will ever take the place of the person you love, you can seek compensation for the damage done. The person or entity that is responsible for their death may face criminal charges, but that won’t necessarily ensure that your family is taken care of. You can seek compensation for the present and future expenses and lost compensation from their death. But is there enough evidence to bring your case to court? You can ask a wrongful death lawyer from an experienced firm like Saavedra Law Firm, PLC about your specific situation to understand your legal options.
- Vehicular Accidents | People are on the road every day driving cars, SUVs, vans, trucks, motor homes, motorcycles and so much more. With so many people on the road it’s no surprise that accidents happen. However, if the driver was acting recklessly at the time of the accident and it resulted in the death of another person, then they can be held accountable for their actions. Likewise, if a vehicle manufacturer has created faulty parts resulting in a crash or if a road was improperly designed, you can pursue compensation for your loss.
- Product Liability | Companies are responsible for what they produce. While some areas have a lot of scrutiny and oversight by agencies like the Food and Drug Administration, others have none and without ethical practices this can result in products that aren’t safe. Sometimes harmful products are a result of an unknown error, but many times the company is aware of the problem and chooses to downplay the problem rather than warn customers. If your loved one was lost as a result, you may seek restitution.
- Workplace Accident | Employers have a responsibility to create a safe workspace and ensure that equipment is working properly. Construction sites and factories require consistent and thorough oversight to keep employees safe. Even the office environment can become dangerous if there were to be a gas exposure or unsafe engineering. Workers compensation should compensate the family for the loss of a loved one but sometimes companies resist paying to protect their own interests. A lawyer can help you fight for what you deserve and hold them accountable.
- Premise Liability | Owners and managers of commercial and residential property have a responsibility to ensure that people are safe. They are obligated to ensure that the property is free of hazards and if one develops they must address the unsafe condition by cordoning it off and fixing it. If someone is hurt or killed on the property and the owner new about it, they are accountable for their lack of action.
