After The Loss Of A Loved One Due To Negligence, We Can Help
Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy. When that death was caused by the negligence of another, it is much more difficult. This area of law is commonly called “wrongful death,” and these claims largely involve deaths caused by the wrongful act, neglect or fault of another.
Compassionate Assistance For Grieving Families
Wrongful death cases require sensitive handling and thorough, knowledgeable investigation to make sure that the neglect of the at-fault party and all recoverable damages can be established. Wrongful death is a civil action rather than a criminal action and is complex. Since the person killed cannot make a claim or file suit and/or collect damages, the family or representatives of the estate must do so.
Since 1984, Hardee & Hardee, LLP, has handled numerous wrongful death cases. We have the legal knowledge, courtroom experience and strong work ethic to handle complicated and challenging cases such as these.
