Wrongful Death

Coping with the loss of a loved one is likely going to be one of the most trying times in your life. What can make things even worse is if the person’s death was due to someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence. If this has happened to you, Jenkins Law Firm will represent you in a wrongful death lawsuit. Our firm has been built on a strong Christian background, so we do our best to ensure that people are ethically and morally represented when they need help the most. You can call us today at (602) 283-9868 for a free consultation, and we can talk more about what we can do to help you receive the compensation you deserve for a wrongful death.


How Is Wrongful Death Defined And Determined?

Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed because of another party who was either negligent or acted with misconduct. For the person who has died, his or her dependents and/or beneficiaries may be entitled to financial compensation from the party who is at fault.

Typically, there are two primary circumstances when wrongful death may occur, including:

  • Malpractice when a patient is under the supervision of a licensed doctor. This can occur during surgery, or through misdiagnosing a health condition. In addition, anesthesiologists may be held responsible if they have administered a fatal amount of anesthesia.
  • Fatal accidents that happen due to defective products in a vehicle. In addition, trucking companies may be held responsible if their employee ignores trucking regulations that are set in place to protect other drivers.

If either of these has happened to your loved one, it’s important that you get the legal representation that will fight for you. Jenkins Law Firm will do everything we can to make sure that you are compensated for the emotional and financial damages that have occurred to you.


How Much Am I Entitled To After A Wrongful Death?

The amount of money that you may be granted after a wrongful death will depend on a variety of conditions. Some of the factors that will go into the amount that you are entitled to include:

  • Whether or not you were financially dependent on the deceased and how much money he or she earned.
  • Savings that have been accrued by the person who has been killed.
  • Financial expenses that have occurred due to funeral or medical costs.
  • Emotional distress due to the death of the person who was killed.

We understand that you can’t put a price on the pain that you’ll feel after losing a loved one. However, being buried by all sorts of bills and charges will only make the situation worse. In order to help ease some of the pain that you may be feeling, let Jenkins Law Firm work for you.
