New London Wrongful Death Lawyers

If you recently lost a loved one in an accident, Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you pursue closure and compensation in a wrongful death case. Losing a loved one is the most devastating event of anyone’s life, and when that loss is a direct result of another’s actions, the right thing to do is to pursue full compensation to make sure your family is provided for by those who are responsible for this tragedy.

Accidental death is a huge problem across the United States, with 146,571 deaths in 2015, making it the fourth most common cause of death overall.

For those in the New London area who count a loved one amongst those numbers, the best way to pursue justice in the form of compensation that covers immediate and future expenses is by contacting a wrongful death lawyer. The New London wrongful death attorneys at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers have the experience and the skills to make sure your claim is heard, your pain is understood, and your compensation is won.

If you or someone you know is dealing with the aftermath of a wrongful death, the lawyers at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help. By calling us at (860) 772-2280, you can schedule a free sit down with one of our attorneys, so you can find out what to do next.

How to Know It’s Time to Contact a Wrongful Death Lawyer

When a wrongful death occurs, it can be difficult just to get from one day to the next. There are huge expenses and responsibilities that pile up very quickly, which leaves little time for grieving and other necessities like working and pursuing a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death lawyer can ease this burden.

Wrongful death lawyers will know how to review your claim, how to collect evidence, how to find the right experts, and how to bring a case against those responsible. Removing that responsibility from your own shoulders is an important step to being able to focus on the more immediate needs of you and your surviving loved ones. A wrongful death lawyer can take over the case and give you the chance to get the compensation you deserve, while you take care of your family.

Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers Has the Most Experienced and Successful Wrongful Death Lawyers in New London

When going through one of the biggest and hardest events of your life, the last thing you want is a lawyer that makes things harder. Some wrongful death lawyers aren’t interested in taking care of their clients. They pursue cases carelessly and can be hard to reach.

That’s not what you get when you come to Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers. Our lawyers know wrongful death cases. We know how to pursue them and how to win them, but we also know that our clients need us for more than just that. Our clients have awarded us for our ability not just to get results but to stand by them and be available when they need us. That’s why we were named to the 10 Best Attorneys by client satisfaction from the American Institute of Legal Counsel. It’s also why we’ve been able to win our clients millions in compensation.

Together, our team has more than 140 years of legal experience. We have seen every kind of wrongful death case, and we know the best legal strategies to make sure those responsible (whether doctors, individual private citizens, or big businesses) pay for the pain you are experiencing.

In addition to our experience, compassion, and winning pedigree, we also ensure that you don’t have to worry about paying anything to us out of pocket. We are contingency-based, which means we only get paid if you win your case. With us, then, you get the best lawyers in New London without ever risking a cent.

The Wrongful Death Cases We See Most Often

Wrongful deaths can occur for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Dangerous/defective drugs and other medical products
  • Defective products
  • Workplace accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall

This list is by no means exhaustive. If you are unsure if your case falls into one of these categories, the best option is to simply contact us and ask.

Damages You Can Pursue in Litigation

While each case is different, there are many types of damages that you can pursue in your claim. Among them are:

  • Medical costs the deceased incurred before their death
  • Funeral costs
  • Burial expenses
  • Loss of future earnings that your loved one would have earned
  • Loss of protection, guidance, and assistance of lost loved one
  • Loss of love and companionship of lost loved one
  • Punitive damages (punishment for the actions of the individuals or companies involved)

Whether you are eligible for these and other damages depends on how you are related to the deceased and the precise details of your case. Much of your case will revolve around arguing over which damages should be paid and how much for each. While the lawyers on the other side (often from insurance companies) will try to reduce these damages or remove them entirely, it is our job to ensure you get every penny you should for the horrible situation you face.

It is important to note that only certain people are eligible to file wrongful death claims. Generally, wrongful death claims are limited to the immediate family of the deceased, people who depended financially on the deceased, and the representative of the estate. There are some exceptions, however. To find out whether you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of your deceased loved one, contact Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers.
