Contact Frenkel & Frenkel to schedule a no-obligation consultation regarding a fatal accident. Allow us to explain how we can help your family obtain compensation to cover expenses and losses such as funeral and burial costs, unpaid medical bills, replacement of lost wages and loss of companionship.
We are proud of our track record of taking on challenging cases and maximizing the benefits to our clients. Sometimes this comes from giving a second opinion. In one instance, a lawyer had evaluated a potential wrongful death case and recommended that the family settle for the funeral expenses, which were being offered by the prospective defendant. Our lawyers took the same case, developed a more complete theory of liability and ultimately collected more than $300,000 for the survivors. In another instance, a product liability case against a major auto manufacturer was turned down by a different law firm. After hiring expert witnesses and teaming up with another law firm, we resolved the case for a gross recovery of $3,400,000. We have dozens of these kinds of stories.
At Frenkel & Frenkel, every case receives careful evaluation from one of our lawyers, sometimes a team. We frequently have roundtable discussions on how to best develop and present a case for fair compensation for clients who have lost family members in fatal accidents.
We fully understand that money cannot bring back a loved one. No dollar amount can ever express the loss that you must live with when your child, parent or spouse has died prematurely as a result of another's negligence. You may feel that it is an insult to the memory of your beloved family member to even think of bringing a wrongful death claim with a coldly calculated dollar figure attached to it. However, we suggest that you also consider the deterrent effect that a wrongful death verdict will have on those whose negligence resulted in the taking of an innocent life. In this way, civil litigation benefits all of society.
There is no need to rush into a lawsuit immediately after your family member has passed away in a construction accident or car crash. However, the period right after the accident is the best time to gather evidence. This is why a committed, skilled wrongful death attorney is an important ally for your family during the time when you rightfully give your attention to memorializing a loved one who was a drowning victim or perished in a deadly collision.
