Hold Negligent Parties Accountable Through A Wrongful Death Lawsuit
After losing a loved one, few people want to concern themselves with the possibility of a long, drawn-out lawsuit. After all, no amount of financial compensation can undo what transpired. But when you consider the medical expenses that may have been necessary prior to death, funeral costs, loss of income and numerous other unanticipated expenses, it becomes clear that you and your family may require additional financial assistance moving forward.
As your attorneys, we can explain the factors that play into determining the value of a wrongful death claim, including:
- The loss of potential inheritance to children and other heirs
- The loss of benefits or pensions
- Funeral expenses and other costs incurred by loss of life
- Compensation for emotional pain and suffering
- Compensation for the loss of future earnings
- Punitive damages in appropriate cases

At Smith, Dickey & Dempster P.A., we are a local practice with years of experience working with industry experts and professionals to build strong cases. We also use the latest technology to better support our cases during trial.
