Have You Lost Someone in a Fatal Accident?

At Joseph E. Hoefert, Attorney at Law, P.C., I help people with all aspects of wrongful death claims. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident, I can help you seek compensation for the hardships you are facing:

  • Financial loss: If you were dependent upon your loved one financially, you may be able to recover financial losses, including lost income, medical bills and funeral expenses.
  • Emotional loss: The loss of a loved one is far more than a financial matter. Loss of companionship is compensable under wrongful death law.
  • Punitive damages: If there is evidence that the death was the cause of willful or egregious behavior, there is the possibility of additional, punitive damages.

Additionally, if there is proof that the deceased lived for any period of time after the trauma, that deceased’s estate may be entitled to recover additional damages. As an experienced wrongful death lawyer, I will carefully explore all aspects of your case to determine how best to pursue your claim. I have access to economic experts that will help us determine the on-going financial burden you are facing. I will do everything in my power to make sure you are financially secure in the aftermath of a wrongful death.
