Standing Up For Families After Fatal Auto Accidents
We help you get justice for the loss of your loved one
A car accident in Ohio or western Pennsylvania can cause a wide range of injuries. Sadly, in some cases, those injuries are fatal. Loved ones are left grieving, and families are left without a provider. The fatal auto accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm offer compassionate representation to help families get justice.
We believe that when the negligence of another led to a loss of life, that negligent party needs to be held responsible. Examples of negligence in car accidents include distracted driving, fatigued driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and speeding. In some cases, a defective automobile part may have led to a fatal accident.
Our attorneys know how devastating the loss of a loved one can be. We can work on building a strong case to help get justice for your loved one, so you can focus on your family. Our goal is to pursue a claim to recover financial compensation for your family.
We know that money can't replace your loss. But it is a way to hold the negligent person who caused the accident responsible. And compensation can help pay for expenses related to the accident, as well as provide some financial stability for your family as you work through this difficult time.
An experienced legal team that gets results
The damages we can pursue include compensation for medical and funeral expenses, loss of financial support, loss of personal companionship, and pain and suffering. In some cases, we may also be able to pursue punitive damages. It can take some time to reach a resolution, but we are dedicated to finding the best possible outcome.
Our legal team investigates your loved one's accident to get the facts about what happened. This involves gathering evidence, reviewing documentation and interviewing witnesses. We may even consult with experts to help prove negligence led to the accident.
When we build a strong case, insurance companies become much more willing to negotiate a favorable settlement. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and will focus on reaching a settlement that meets your needs. If the insurance company won't cooperate, our attorneys are also skilled litigators and can fight for you in court.
While you have two years from the date of your loved one's accident to take legal action, we encourage you to meet with an attorney as soon as possible. It's important to preserve evidence before it is lost and talk to witnesses before their memories fade.
