A representative of a deceased person's estate may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if the death was a direct result of another person's or organization's negligent or intentional actions.

Hardworking attorneys help clients seek full compensation

Prompt action is critical to obtaining fair damages after the death of a family member. We are well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses to attempt to limit their liability, and we counter their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. We work hard to demonstrate that you receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

The damages given in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on the circumstances involved. To prove important factors such as the severity of the accident and the victim's suffering before passing, we may work with private investigators and experts to establish liability. We also obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and take other strategic measures.

The attorneys at May Lightfoot, PLLC aggressively seek comprehensive settlements outside of court. If the other side fails to offer the remedy you deserve, however, we will be forceful advocates in litigation.
