Do You Need A Wrongful Death Lawyer?

Our attorneys at Preston & Salango have litigated thousands of complex legal cases. Some of the most tragic cases are those involving wrongful death. The unexpected death of a loved one due to the negligence of another person or entity is something that is both emotionally and financially challenging for any family.

While it may seem difficult to have to deal with these issues in a time of loss, it is important to have a wrongful death lawyer on your side early in the process. The insurance companies will be pressing for a quick settlement of the issue and accepting a settlement quickly and without legal representation may result in a much lower settlement than is fair or just.

As your wrongful death lawyer, we will meet with you to provide a no-cost case evaluation and discuss the best course of action for you and your family.

Vehicle Accidents

When a loved one dies from injuries in a vehicle accident, there may be multiple parties involved in the claim. We are able to ensure that all negligent parties are named and that full investigation of their actions or lack of actions are documented as evidence.

Defective Products or Drugs

Consumer products can also be deadly and dangerous. This includes both mechanical products, furniture, vehicle parts and components or even over-the-counter or prescription medications.

For these cases, an attorney who is experienced in handling wrongful death cases is of utmost importance. You need someone who has dealt with large companies and is ready to take on the company’s teams of lawyers.

Medical Injuries or Death

Medical malpractice is more common than most people know. Misdiagnosis, mistreatment, and failure to diagnose are the third leading causes of death in the USA. If you believe that the death or injuries sustained in treatment were a result of medical negligence by the doctor, medical staff or the facility, an attorney specializing in this area of the law will be critical to your case.

It is a very difficult time of your life, but getting the legal representation you deserve is important. A settlement will not ease the pain of the loss, but it will relieve the financial stress and allow you to focus on your own emotional healing.
