When a wrongful death has occurred, you need a personal injury lawyer who is well versed in the wrongful death statutes to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. Wrongful death can occur as a result of medical malpractice, homicide, car accident, or due to the actions of a company. Pursuing a medical malpractice suit can be tricky, however, since a deceased person cannot file a lawsuit. Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed by the surviving family members based on special statutes that have been passed in each state. Navigating these statutes can be complicated, since each state has its own restrictions as to which surviving members of the estate can bring a wrongful death claim. When you need a personal injury attorney you can trust, Phoenix and Arizona residents can turn to Torgenson Law to ensure they will be taken care of.
We work directly with clients to determine which surviving family member will file the lawsuit on behalf of the estate of the deceased. In some instances, the deceased’s estate may also be entitled to pain and suffering for the period of time between when the incident occurred and the person’s death. Once an award has been issued, distribution of compensation is often governed by state statutes. We can work with you to help you understand the statutes specific to your case prior to filing a wrongful death lawsuit. In Phoenix, there is no personal injury lawyer more passionate about fighting for those who have been wronged than the team at Torgenson Law.
