Our attorneys know the impact the loss of a loved one can have on families. And we also know you have a lot of other things besides legal matters on your mind right now. We offer compassionate representation to help get justice for your loved one.

In a wrongful death, an act of negligence caused an accident that led to someone's death. We have handled wrongful death cases in which loved ones were lost because of:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products
  • Workplace accidents

Wrongful death cases can be complicated. The negligent parties often don't accept responsibility for what happened. Insurance companies often look for any reason to avoid paying you financial compensation. They may even try to pin some of the blame for what happened on your loved one. And they have attorneys to fight for their best interests.

That's why you need an experienced wrongful death attorney who will fight on behalf of your family. We conduct our own investigation of fatal accidents to learn the facts for ourselves. We review all documentation and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction specialists and other experts.

Focused on getting the best possible outcome

Our attorneys focus on building the strongest possible case that proves your loved one was the victim of negligence. We can then help you pursue legal action. No amount of money can bring your loved one back. But financial compensation can hold negligent parties accountable and help your family as you adjust to life without your loved one.

The damages we can seek on your behalf include funeral expenses, medical expenses related to your loved one's fatal injury, loss of income and benefits and loss of companionship. Many times, when insurance companies see that we have built a strong case and are serious about pursuing it, they agree to enter settlement negotiations.

But we are not interested in a quick settlement that helps the insurance company save money. We are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs. If the insurance company won't agree to a settlement that works for you, we will be prepared to fight for your loved one in court.

Depending on the circumstances of your loved one's fatal accident, the statute of limitations for taking legal action is anywhere from one to four years. But we encourage you to contact an attorney as soon as possible. It's important to start building a case before evidence is lost or destroyed and the memories of witnesses begin to fade.

We offer a free case evaluation. Call Gervelis Law Firm at 330-835-2943 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our wrongful death attorneys. We can review the details of your loved one's accident and explain your options.
