Seek Justice After Losing A Loved One

Losing a loved one is unbearably painful, especially when the death was caused by avoidable negligence. There's no way to bring back your loved one, but the legal system does allow surviving family members of a wrongful death victim to seek financial compensation for their loss.

For example, if a father is killed by the negligence of a truck driver on the highway, his wife and children can bring civil actions (also called lawsuits). If both parents are killed, the lawsuit and right of recovery belong to the children.

This is commonly referred to as a wrongful death civil action. The purpose of the law is to compensate the family or remaining people in the deceased person's life for the injuries the deceased would have been able to recover for were he or she alive.

At David Butts Law Firm, it's our job to help you navigate personal injury law to get the compensation you deserve after a wrongful death accident. Our founding lawyer, David Butts, has more than 40 years of experience, so he is prepared to answer all your questions promptly and thoroughly.
