Wrongful Death Attorneys
Losing a loved one is always devastating. However, one thing that can make it even more devastating is if the loss occurred because of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or illegal conduct. While the law cannot restore your loved one to you, it does offer some recourse. You can sue for wrongful death and attempt to recover damages that will pay for your loved one’s final medical bills and funeral costs as well as replace income they would have earned. The court may also award punitive damages if it believes that the defendant’s conduct was especially egregious.
At Koon Cook & Walters, LLC, we understand the pain you are going through, and we know that an untimely loss can create a large financial burden on a family. Let us help you get the compensation you need to move forward and fight for justice in your loved one’s name.
A wrongful death can occur after a car accident, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, an accident at work, or any other personal injury.
These cases can become very complicated. However, no matter what caused your loved one’s passing, the attorneys at Koon Cook & Walters, LLC, are here to help. Call us today to schedule a free consultation.
