Supporting Families Through Wrongful Death Claims
The death of a family member is never a pain-free process. Knowing that your loved one’s death could have been prevented only increases the pain and frustration. The law provides that you may recover damages for the loss of comfort, consortium, companionship and support of a loved one when the death was occasioned by the negligence of another.
At Heartland Injury Law, surviving family members find compassion as well as practical help through skillful advocacy by attorney Mike Sudekum. He is respectful of families’ need to mourn. At the same time, he is passionate and persistent in his efforts to help them recover financially through timely, effective wrongful death cases.
Why A Timely Claim Or Lawsuit Is So Important
In Missouri and Illinois, the recovery for the wrongful death of a family member is controlled by statutes that determine who can make a claim and the procedure to file a claim. Wrongful death claims fall under a different statute of limitations than personal injury claims. Therefore, the decision to pursue a claim after a fatal car accident or any accident must be made as soon as possible.
While it is important to grieve the loss of a loved one, if her death is the fault of another’s carelessness, the time to file a claim starts to run at the death of the family member. Attorney Sudekum is respectful of families as well as diligent in pursuing compensation for them.
