Anyone who has lost a loved one due to an accidental death knows what a difficult and painful experience it is. While no amount of money can ever replace a spouse, child, or parent, close relatives are entitled to financial compensation and should be aware of their rights under Arizona law.
We seek full compensation for our clients who have lost a loved one. Our attorneys average more than 30 years of wrongful death and injury practice, and all have been Arizona lawyers for more than two decades. When you retain our firm, you will have a highly experienced legal team dedicated to one purpose – helping you and your family recover full compensation.
Our wrongful death injury practice includes former presidents of the American Trial Lawyers Association, those who have received the highest peer review rating possible (AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated) by Martindale-Hubbell®, and a Senior Partner who is a Board Certified specialist in wrongful death and personal injury litigation by the State Bar of Arizona Board of Certification (less than 1% of Arizona lawyers have received this certification).
When someone loses his or her life because of the negligence or wrongful act of another person or entity, the surviving family is deprived of affection and companionship and, in some cases, a financial provider. Close relatives may be burdened by expenses resulting from the fatal accident, as well as mental anguish at the loss of their loved one.
Under Arizona law, surviving spouses, children, and parents of the deceased may recover compensation for all of these losses. Common damages include:
If the actions of the negligent person or business were particularly egregious, in some cases you may be entitled to recover punitive damages, which are awarded to punish the negligent party and discourage similar acts in the future.
Our firm does not run a high volume practice. We accept only a limited number of wrongful death and serious injury cases so that we can provide the full attention that all clients deserve. We believe that all clients should know their attorneys well, and not be “just another file.”
Obtaining complete compensation through a settlement or trial requires painstaking work to build the cases of clients, especially in a wrongful death case. We limit our caseload so that we can devote the full measure of effort required to develop every aspect of our client’s case. In our experience meticulous case development is the only way that our clients can fully recover for their loss.
