Wrongful Death: Finding a Starting Place for Healing

by Staff Blogger | January 5th, 2017

Wrongful death lawsuits are different than any other type of personal injury case type we handle, because no matter how much money we secure for the surviving family, it doesn’t fill that void. That’s the reality of losing someone due to someone else’s negligence—there’s simply no amount of money that can replace the loved one who was taken from you. What they meant to you and your family cannot be translated into monetary terms.

Does that mean you shouldn’t seek compensation for your loss? Absolutely not. On the contrary, that simple fact is the sole reason you should seek compensation. Often a wrongful death case is less about getting money for your loss than it is about honoring the life cut tragically short. That’s why we handle wrongful death cases at Skolrood Law, because it provides grieving families a starting place for healing.

How do you know if you have a wrongful death lawsuit? Here are three things that must be true:

  • Your loved one died due to someone else’s negligence.
  • The negligent act that caused his/her death would have entitled him/her to file an injury claim.
  • Your loved one’s death has caused financial hardship for your family.

If those three things apply to your situation, give our experienced Roanoke wrongful death attorneys a call for a free consultation. We’ll review your case at no cost or obligation.
