We are aware that the possibility of making a claim for wrongful death may cause you to be seriously concerned and stressed. We are also aware that no amount of money can ever bring back a loved one who has been lost or ease the agony and sorrow that you are experiencing. We are more than sorry for your loss. Regrettably, in these kinds of cases, the only remedy that the law may provide is a monetary award against the person or corporation that is at fault for the death of your loved one in order to compensate you for the loss of that person. This is done in order to make up for the pain and suffering that you have endured as a result of the death of your loved one.
