The accidental death of a loved one is especially hard to bear, as it's something you don't expect and it all happens so fast. But it's even more difficult if that accidental death was caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.
The horrible unfairness of it all, suddenly depriving you and other family members of the company of one so loved, forever. During this painful, confusing time, you need skillful guidance from a Birmingham wrongful death lawyer.
Although no amount of money can ever replace the loved one whom you've lost, my nearly two decades of experience with numerous clients has shown me that compensation can assist families who have lost wage earners and who are facing funeral costs, unpaid medical bills, loss of income and permanent loss of that loved one's companionship.
