Building a Successful Wrongful Death Case
At Godbey Law, we take a disciplined approach to our work. In building your case, we will thoroughly analyze every aspect of the event that took your loved one from you.
In a fatal auto accident or truck accident case for example, we will call upon professional investigators, highway safety experts and others who can identify how the accident happened and who was responsible. We will also take the full measure of your loss and suffering using economists and other professionals who can quantify the lost earnings and effects on your life.
While nothing can ever replace your loss, the resources we obtain can provide financial security and a sense of closure.
Complex Legal Issues
A wrongful death lawsuit can raise many complex legal issues. For example, many parties may have a legal claim to compensation, including various family members as well as the estate of the deceased. They can file claims against the deceased person’s own insurance company, as well as those for the negligent party or parties.
Sorting out these claims while developing a successful legal strategy requires an attorney knowledgeable in wrongful death law. Godbey Law has extensive experience in complex wrongful death and personal injury cases. Our attorneys understand how to press these cases through the legal system and will work to maximize the compensation you receive.
