Wrongful Death

When a death occurs to someone you love, whether they are a family member or a friend, the last thing you want to think about is whether you need to hire an attorney.  At Park Chenaur Law, we will help you evaluate the case at no charge.  If there was negligence involved, it is important the negligent party be responsible for their actions.  We will give you guidance and knowledge to help you make good decisions.  The attorneys at Park Chenaur will help you navigate through the cumbersome wrongful death statutes and survival actions.  Pecuniary, or financial, injury is the main measure of damages in a wrongful death action. Courts have interpreted "pecuniary injuries" as including the loss of support, services, lost prospect of inheritance, and medical and funeral expenses. Most laws provide that the damages awarded for a wrongful death shall be fair and just compensation for the pecuniary injuries that resulted from the decedent's death.  Although money can never replace the loss of a family member, under civil law, monetary damages is the only remedy available.  Money can help care for the young survivors in a way the deceased would have been able to do in their lifetime.  Given the potentially high amount of damages, which can be recovered under a wrongful death claim, insurance companies will go to great lengths to defend an action containing a wrongful death claim. As a result, you need to be sure that you get the very best representation possible for your wrongful death claim.  In the end, a wrongful death claim can at least bring some form of closure for you.  Making the responsible person face the result of their actions, and hopefully restrict them from such dangerous actions in the future is one way to make them pay for what they have done.
