What would be the most traumatic event in your life? Most will agree that nothing is worse than the untimely, sudden demise of a loved one. The loss becomes even more painful on realizing that someone else’s negligence took away forever the person you loved so dearly.
Arranging for financial support
The law in Mansfield recognizes how shocking wrongful death is and tries to provide you with compensation so that you at least ‘have some financial support. No one can rekindle life in someone who has left for their heavenly abode, but the law does the minimum possible thing by providing you with a process for seeking damages.
The law allows you to file a lawsuit in Mansfield demanding damages from the party that’s accused of negligence. However, like all court cases, such a lawsuit is also complex and you need the continued support of a capable attorney to ensure that your case gets through in court with a verdict that is favorable to you.
When you collaborate with The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess, the steps we take is include understanding the case, making an investigation, quantifying the losses, and then filing a case to get the damages.
Comprehension of case
It’s important for us to know exactly how the accident happened and who was at fault. These factors do have a bearing on the outcome of a case. For instance, if a victim themselves was partially responsible for their own death, or if the weather was to be blamed, the compensation may be reduced by the court.
For a lawyer, it’s always important not to take any case at its face value and conduct proper investigation before arriving on a decision. We follow this legal convention to the book. Our attorneys conduct their own investigation into a case before determining what really happened.
Quantification of compensation
The losses you suffer because of wrongful death may be several. For example, the shock you experience post the death may render you emotionally incapable to attend office and continue your earning activities, though you may be physically able to do so. It’s for us to deploy our expertise to arrive at a figure in all such cases.
Filing of case
The insight we gather about a case helps us to chalk out a strategy and file a robust lawsuit in a court of law. Our understanding of the case enables us to guess the arguments the defending party’s lawyer may come up with in court to thwart our designs. This enables us to come up with convincing counter arguments.
