Wrongful Death

The Ucheomumu Law Group's injury law attorneys have a long history of handling cases where a wrongful death has occurred due to reckless, careless or negligent actions by another person or business. While these cases present a tragic loss for family members of the decedent, our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the family members who are understandably devastated at the tragic loss of their loved one. Questions like, wrongful death imageWho will help pay the bills for the care required before that person died? Who will help the family pay their living expenses now that they have lost the financial, domestic and emotional support of that person? These questions often create stress and confusion, and it's our job to help our clients through these difficult times. Our attorneys regularly help clients answer these very important questions, while explaining how their legal rights apply to their unique case.

After the death of a loved one, hospitals, ambulance providers and debt collectors frequently contact family members to recover money owed. Our injury law team helps clients understand these outstanding financial obligations, which may or may not be their responsibility to pay. Our attorneys can also explain how certain surviving family members may be eligible for monetary compensation to cover medical expenses incurred for their loved one prior to their death, as well funeral expenses.

Wrongful death cases may also entitle surviving family members to recover monetary damages because of the accident, and the loss of their loved one's life. Such damages are paid to certain family members depending on their relationship to the decedent. Because legal and insurance processes involved in these cases can be overwhelming and challenging, especially since laws can vary between states, our attorneys help clients understand the processes and their individual rights.
