Lexington Wrongful Death Attorneys
In the U.S. alone, around 32,000 people are killed in a motor vehicle accident every year. Research conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concluded that one person dies in a wreck about every twelve minutes. Often, these deaths are completely avoidable. At Wilson & McQueen, PLLC, our Lexington wrongful death attorneys know how tragic the unexpected loss of a loved one can be. We also know how frustrating it can be to lose a loved one to someone else’s gross negligence. That’s why we are dedicated to helping people in this situation find relief and comfort in the form of financial compensation.
Proving a Wrongful Death Claim
The sudden loss of a loved one is certainly an emotionally tumultuous matter, and it can be especially difficult to recover if that loved one provided a great deal of financial support for you and your family. Combine the pain and the new financial burden with all of the other emotions you may be feeling, and it can easily seem to be too much to bear. However, if your loved one was the victim of negligence, you may be able to find some relief. In order to win compensation for wrongful death claims, you must prove the following:
- Another party’s negligence was responsible for the accident.
- You are an heir of the deceased.
- The death of your loved one has led to financial damages.
In order to prove these things, you will need a great deal of credible evidence. It is in your best interest to seek the help of a qualified wrongful death attorney to help you compile this proof and present your case against the defendant. The lawyers at Wilson & McQueen, PLLC want to help guide you through this process.
