A Dothan Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help You Make Compassionate, Strategic Decisions

Searching for a Dothan wrongful death attorney (or anywhere) can be a stressful, scary experience. After all, you recently lost someone close to you – perhaps suddenly and unexpectedly, due to car crash, or workplace accident. The last thing you probably want to do is to interview Dothan personal injury lawyers.

However, if you don’t take legal action now, you may lose out on the opportunity to hold a negligent person or company responsible for the death. Plus, you may needless struggle, later on, to obtain compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, loss of consortium, and other damages.

How A Dothan Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help

The concept of "wrongful death," legally speaking, can be confusing. Every death is a tragedy, but not every death is considered “wrongful,” per state or federal law. If someone or some company committed an act of negligence, carelessness, hostility or recklessness – and that act caused or contributed to the death, even in a subtle, non-direct way – then you may have a personal injury case.

Typical wrongful death cases include:

  • Car, commercial and light truck, motorcycle, bicycle, ATV, van, bus and pedestrian accidents
  • Defective product cases including defective tires, medical devices and medications
  • Workplace and industrial accidents
  • Premises liability cases
  • Air Plane and Helicopter Crashes
  • Train Crashes

The family of the decedent may desperately need money to pay for medical and nursing care, the cost of administrating the estate, funeral costs, and ongoing support for dependents left behind. A wrongful death suit also serves double duty, in that it can prevent a negligent person or company from harming others in the same way. Filing a lawsuit cannot bring closure, but families often feel better “doing something” productive to address unsafe conditions that occur when a company values profits over safety, as opposed to remaining powerless in the face of the tragedy.
