Wrongful Death Lawsuits

When your spouse, child, or a parent dies, you feel unbearable pain. That pain is made worse when you know their death was caused by negligence or reckless behavior of another person or company.

As you grieve, it’s incredibly difficult to think about finances, lawsuits, or fighting big insurance companies. And often, at-fault individuals and companies bet upon your lack of knowledge and offer you the bare minimum amount of compensation. Don’t settle for less.

When a loved one tragically dies as a result of someone else’s fault, you need to focus on your family. Let attorney Scot Kraeuter worry about making sure the at-fault person or company is held fully accountable.

What situations are covered under wrongful death?

Wrongful death is a death caused by the negligence of a third party, including:

  • Car wrecks
  • Truck wrecks
  • Construction accidents
  • Building accidents
  • Equipment malfunctions
  • Train accidents
  • Ship accidents

What should I expect in a wrongful death case?

Know that we move very quickly in wrongful death cases. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to successfully win appropriate compensation from at-fault people or companies.

As part of our process, we immediately start:

  • Identifying who is at fault
  • Identifying the proper parties to sue
  • Gathering evidence
  • Investigating claims
  • Conducting interviews

From wrecks to other complicated situations like industrial plant mishaps, we have the experience to investigate, act quickly, and focus on relieving your worries about financial compensation.

Remember, big insurance companies will also follow all of these steps to construct a case that favors them more than favors you. That’s why you need someone on your side to be just as thorough and rigorous with your investigation to effectively negotiate with (or battle against) the insurance companies.
