Along with other types of personal injury, Prince Glover Hayes has extensive experience in successfully prosecuting wrongful death claims. Wrongful death describes the death resulting from a personal injury caused by the negligence or reckless action of another. PGH takes seriously the responsibility of ensuring that the victim’s family is treated with the utmost care and compassion during this difficult time, all the while vigorously pursuing those who have caused the death of their loved one.
HOW PGH CAN HELP
When someone is killed as a result of another person’s negligence or wrongdoing, his or her family is confronted with a devastating loss. Oftentimes, this loss is accompanied by financial stress, especially when the deceased was the key income provider. The Alabama Wrongful Death Statute is unique in that any money damages awarded are entirely punitive (designed to punish the wrongdoer), rather than compensatory. However, any recovery by the family (or other designated personal representative) can, of course, be used to compensate for lost income, lost future earnings and to offset expenses. On an emotional level, a wrongful death lawsuit brings not only justice, but also closure because the family knows steps have been taken to prevent others from experiencing a similar fate at the hands of those responsible.
Wrongful deaths occur as a result of any number of causes including:
- Car wrecks
- Truck/18-wheeler wrecks
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Defective products
- Work-related injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Toxic exposure
