LET US HELP, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

Family members who have lost a loved one need to understand the process, time constraints, and limitations related to making a wrongful death claim. If you believe that a person or entity, such as a business, manufacturer, hospital, workplace, or governmental entity is responsible for the death of your family member, then it is important to talk to an attorney. An attorney can advise you about your rights, the wrongful death claim process, apportionment between heirs, and the statutes of limitation which pertain to the claim.

Often, when a family is mourning, a lawsuit is the furthest thing from their mind. Yet there are things that are important to know. At Jackson Jones, we feel that it is crucial that the family find a law firm the family believes in, and is comfortable with; someone who will take over handling the legal issues so that the family can heal and focus on each other, not lawsuits, claims and legal problems.

Not every wrongful death claim results in a lawsuit. Jackson Jones has settled many wrongful death claims without the need to file suit. We do our best to avoid the emotional drag of a public trial, with the best interests of the client in mind. Our goal is to help bring closure for the family and just compensation for the loss suffered.

We are experienced at wrongful death claims, the investigative process, hiring correct experts at the right time, and are accustomed to giving immediate attention to the development of evidence necessary at the early stages of the claim.  We are confident in our ability to bring the resources required by each case from the moment we take it.

Jackson Jones has handled wrongful death claims involving car accidents, drownings, semi truck accidents, negligent healthcare, design defects, drunk drivers, and fires.   

You can talk to us at no charge about a potential wrongful death claim.  The consultation is free.

TIPS TO CONSIDER

STEP

1

The person most directly related to the decedent, whether spouse, parent or adult child, should consider consulting with an attorney to determine whether a meritorious claim exists.

STEP

2

If you already have an estate opened with the probate court, don’t finalize and close the estate until after consulting with a personal injury attorney about any potential claim.

STEP

3

If a personal representative has been appointed and that person is different than the closest relative, then the personal representative is under a fiduciary obligation to consult with an attorney to determine if a lawful claim for wrongful death exists.

STEP

4

Consider the financial needs of the spouse, children, dependents and/or parents of the decedent. Know that claims can be lost if not acted upon; that failure to comply with the statute of limitations, a tort claim notice and the like can bar an action if not addressed in a timely fashion.
