Helping You Through The Most Difficult Times
Losing a loved one is one of the most challenging things you can go through. When someone else’s negligence or actions cause that loss, that grief can turn into anger. As the relative of a deceased loved one, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim and fight for compensation.
While no compensation will bring back your loved one, it may ease the burden of funeral costs, medical bills, and loss of future income and companionship. Our wrongful death attorneys at Sammons, Olivero & Paraschos have assisted clients in Huntington and throughout the Southern West Virginia area in seeking compensation. Having an experienced attorney by your side can help ensure that those responsible are held accountable for your loss.
No Compensation Will Be Enough, But It Can Help You Move Forward
Wrongful death can result from any accident or medical mistake. However, not every accidental death is considered wrongful under West Virginia law. You must establish that the party who caused the death committed negligence to claim wrongful death. Also, you must prove that the fatality could have been prevented but for the negligent party’s actions.
At Sammons, Olivero & Paraschos, we can help you with different kinds of wrongful death claims, including:
- Car accidents
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
In West Virginia, you must have proof that the party who caused the death committed negligence or an intentional act to prove wrongful death. The state also requires that you prove that the death could have been prevented but for the responsible party’s actions.
You may be able to recover economic damages such as compensation for loss of income, funeral expenses and medical bills. You may also be eligible for noneconomic damages such as loss of companionship, sorrow and mental anguish.
