Life is all we have, and all we can give each other. If a member of your family died as a result of someone's careless act, your family has suffered a loss that can be more devastating than can be described. Wrongful Death is the legal name for the laws that recognize traumatic losses.
A loved one can be killed or allowed to die by the carelessness or negligence of truck or car drivers, by nursing homes, doctors, nurses, hospitals, the government and the Veterans Administration, by makers or sellers of defective products, by bad equipment or lack of safety on the job, by dangerous property conditions. The list is nearly endless.
In order to help, a law office must be aware and experienced in all those areas. But Wrongful Death laws are more complicated than simple injury cases. Wrongful Death law varies a from state to state. In Missouri, the Wrongful Death statute
allows only certain people to bring suit, and has special laws on damages. In Illinois, a law offices must be aware of the special requirements of the Illinois Wrongful Death statute, and must know how to balance those with the Survival Act laws. We have handled or are handling such cases in multiple states, and our office has advised attorneys in Illinois and Missouri, and dealt with the unfortunate cases where lawyers not familiar with the law of the other state make mistakes.
When life is lost, you need an office that provides understanding and support in many areas. The Law Offices of David N. Damick has been notably successful in wrongful death litigation, and our staff is supportive, understanding, and giving - while keeping in mind our goals and your best interests.
