Hernando, Mississippi, Wrongful Death Attorneys
For those in Hernando, MS who experience the horror of an unexpected death in the family, the attorneys at The Stroud Law firm extend our most sincere sympathies. No family should have to suffer through losing a loved one out of the blue. Unexpected losses are often more damaging and harder to understand than those that happen after lengthy illnesses or due to old age. In such cases family members usually have time to come to terms with the inevitable. Unexpected accidents due to another person’s carelessness can never be anticipated and thus are especially trying.
The grief that your family goes through due to such a sudden death typically results in an added burden for family members: financial trouble. Such unexpected deaths leave unprepared families with medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income and other incredibly expensive bills to pay. It’s impossible to imagine how hard things can be for a family struggling to mourn the loss of a loved one who also have to juggle the stress of financial strain. Though it can never repair the damage that has been done, wrongful death claims can help ease the financial burden, removing one less thing for a grieving family to worry about.
In Hernando, Mississippi, the surviving family members are permitted to bring a civil action against the person or corporation responsible for their loved one’s death. This is what’s known as a wrongful death case and it allows the family to seek financial compensation for the devastation left when their loved one was killed. Anyone who has suffered such a death knows that no amount of money can truly bring justice, but it can help put you on a solid financial footing and make up for the loss of financial contributions to the family.
Our Hernando wrongful death attorneys have successfully handled such wrongful death cases in the past and understand how to navigate the complicated laws in the state regarding such claims. We are able to help families seek compensation for preventable deaths due to a wide variety of causes, including: car accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, motorcycle wrecks, ATV accidents, pedestrian hit-and-runs, construction accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, surgical errors, nursing home abuse and defective products.
Our first task is to demonstrate that negligence on the part of another person or organization led to the death of your loved one. We are able to launch an investigation into the matter and hire the necessary experts to prove liability. After such responsibility has been shown, we then have to come up with a figure to sue for. Such suits can include damages due to mental anguish, lost wages, lost future wage, medical expenses, funeral costs and loss of consortium.
