Representing Families Who Lost A Loved One
Losing a loved one because of another’s negligence, neglect or wrongful act is devastating. Often you will not know where to turn for help, and it is difficult to imagine how such a loss will impact your life.
At Lindner Law, LLC, in Milwaukee and Appleton, we can anticipate your special needs during this most difficult time. While there is never adequate compensation for the loss of a loved one, the law has provisions to help make things right by ordering the at-fault parties to compensate you for your economic and noneconomic losses. With over 45 years of combined legal experience, our firm’s lawyers are knowledgeable and skilled in representing families in wrongful death suits. Our firm has fought for the rights of individuals and families seeking justice and compensation.
Common Types Of Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Our firm routinely represents Wisconsin residents in wrongful death actions of all kinds, but automobile accidents are the most common. Last year alone, there were over 35,000 deaths on our highways due to motor vehicle crashes. Many such cases arise due to careless or reckless behavior, inattentiveness, or drunk or impaired driving.
Our firm has a tremendous amount of experience helping families in such cases recover the compensation they deserve. We have access to experts and accident reconstructionists who can recreate what occurred. We will aggressively negotiate with insurance companies to get your family the maximum possible settlement but are always ready to try your case in court when necessary.
Damages Available In Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Wrongful death lawsuits are particularly complicated. The cases can be expensive and time-consuming to litigate because they require extensive investigation and may require the assistance of experts to help bolster your case. You should seek a law firm that is familiar with all aspects of a case like yours and also find out whether the law firm has the financial resources to pay for the detailed investigation, research and experts needed to win your case. The difference between seasoned veterans and novices will show up in a case like this more so than in many other types of cases.
Our wrongful death attorneys are here for you. The economic losses that our firm can help you recover in a wrongful death lawsuit include medical expenses, hospital bills, wage loss, loss of future earning capacity, funeral expenses, burial expenses and lost inheritance. Noneconomic losses that are recoverable include loss of love, nurturing and companionship due to the loss of your loved one. In certain aggravated situations, a court can order punitive damages to prevent this type of event from happening to others.
If you believe that your loved one died as a result of another’s negligence, wrongful act or neglect, we urge you to talk with one of our caring, aggressive and experienced attorneys for advice on a wrongful death lawsuit. Our firm’s reputation in this area is based on outstanding professional service, a sincere concern for our clients, and the care we take in handling every aspect of a wrongful death claim.
