If someone you love dies as a result of someone else's negligence, you may be able to collect damages from the responsible party. According to the experienced attorneys at Dothan's The Gil Law Firm, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit even if prosecutors decide not to file charges. These cases are often extremely complex, requiring the services of a competent personal injury attorney with the in-depth understanding of the law it takes to ensure your rights are protected.
Essentially, a wrongful death lawsuit can be considered a type of personal injury case, in which the injured party is not able to represent their interests in court. Instead, a surviving spouse or another family member represents the plaintiff and is empowered to claim damages based on a variety of factors, including lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. The Gil Law Firm knows that no amount of money can replace your lost loved one, but they can help relieve the financial burden their death may have caused.
These attorneys offer legal services in a broad range of practice areas, from bankruptcy to Social Security disability assistance. No matter what kind of legal challenges you face, you can rely on this team for high-quality advice, personalized attention, and solutions crafted to meet the unique challenges of your case and help ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.
