Wrongful Death of a Loved One
Nothing in the world is more difficult than the loss of a loved one. This is even more true when that person is taken suddenly in a preventable event.
If you have been impacted by the tragic loss of a parent, child, sibling, or other family member, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the future.
Role of Wrongful Death Attorneys
For more than 30 years, attorney Bill Stemberger has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with families who have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one. In many of these cases, the family left behind is reluctant to hire an attorney. After all, nothing is going to bring their family member back or restore the family unit to how it was before. And while that is true, we would encourage anyone in this situation to consider a few very important things as they decide what steps to take moving forward.
First, accept a free consultation with an experienced attorney with the understanding that your are not required to take any legal action at all. This consultation will explain all of your options, something which in itself often provides some level of closure. In addition, early involvement of a skilled wrongful death attorney will protect information and evidence that will be critically important later if you choose to pursue a claim.
Second, recognize that wrongful death cases are not only about money. Our world is filled with life-saving safety features, processes, and checks that were born out of legal proceedings that held companies and individuals responsible for preventable deaths. In short, your actions now may help save another family from the pain of losing their loved one, and it can help you heal.
Third, understand that our system of justice is designed to compensate persons in your exact situation. Millions of businesses and drivers purchase insurance policies every day because they know there is a chance for tragedy and the people left behind will need help. In most sudden loss situations, there are medical bills and every day expenses to pay, income to replace, and children to send to school. Let the system work as it is designed to do.
