Wrongful Death

Seeking Justice for Victims of Wrongful Death

Losing a family member under any circumstance is painful enough. But when that loss has been caused by the negligent, reckless or even criminal actions of another, the pain and the grief and the anger can be overwhelming.
At the Law Offices, we understand that what you’ve lost is not something anyone can put a price on. We know that you would rather have your loved one here with you today. At the same time, pursuing a wrongful death claim can serve important purposes. It offers you the chance to hold the responsible parties accountable. It can help to create a safer world. It provides an opportunity to honor your loved one’s memory by telling the story of who they were and what they meant to you.

In this way, it allows for some measure of justice.

We prepare each case as if a trial will be necessary to achieve a fair result. This sends a strong message to the opposing party that we take your claim seriously and are not willing to accept anything less than you deserve.

Communicating with clarity and honesty; exercising diligence in preparing our cases; vigilantly looking out for and aggressively pursing the best interests of the people and families we represent at all times — these are just a few of the values that guide us.

Closing Argument of a Lawyer in a Mental Injury Case

After proceedings in a trail are concluded, lawyers representing the two parties may present their closing argument to the jury before the ruling is made. During this argument, your mental injury lawyers may point out important factual and legal issues, like the cause of your psychological or mental injury and the damages it has inflicted on you. Under the law, the defendant is expected to take the victim in the state he/she was in before the accident.

In fact, if you had a pre-existing condition that made you vulnerable to injury than a normal person, then you can claim monetary damages if the condition was aggravated. Your lawyer will use analogies to explain a point during closing argument. For instance, a farmer may be transporting eggs in his truck and accidently hit from behind by another truck and all eggs are broken. The driver of the other truck may argue that if the farmer had carried golf balls instead of eggs, no damage would have been caused.

In this case, the driver’s argument doesn’t hold water. Similarly, the mental injury of a plaintiff would be considered very fragile, and any damage caused to him or her would result in compensation claim.
