Legal Help For Families With Wrongful Death Claims
Losing a loved one is never easy. The sense of grief and loss is only magnified if your loved one suffered fatal injuries resulting from the negligent actions of another party. While the thought of taking legal action may be the furthest thing from your mind, doing so can help ensure that the negligent party will be held accountable and can send a message that reckless actions will not be tolerated in Oregon.
At Sokol & Associates, P.C., our attorneys bring decades of experience to personal injury and fatal accident claims. We will be your staunch advocates while we work to help recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
We Handle All Types Of Fatal Accident Claims
We represent families who have lost loved ones in motor vehicle accidents, as well as those who lost loved ones due to medical negligence and other types of accidents. Our lawyers provide compassionate and understanding legal representation while working hard to hold negligent actors accountable. We know that there is no amount of compensation that can make up for your loss. However, we can help you recover the financial assistance you deserve during your time of need.
Who Is Eligible To Recover Damages?
When you file a wrongful death claim, you are doing so on behalf of the estate of the person who lost their life. In general, immediate family members, such as a surviving spouse or children of the deceased, or the parents if the victim was a child, will be first in line to collect any proceeds resulting from the wrongful death claim. Other family members, such as grandparents, siblings, and stepchildren may also have the right to recover damages. If there are no surviving immediate family members, extended family such as aunts and uncles may be eligible. Our attorneys will help explore your legal options.
