Wrongful Death Attorney
When you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person or entity, you may be entitled to compensation for the decedent’s hospital bills, doctor and other medical services, memorial services, and burial costs. In addition, you may be compensated for the deceased person’s pain and suffering and loss of income, as well as financial losses to the estate. The law also allows for awards to the spouse, children, stepchildren, step-parents and parents for economic loss and for loss of companionship. While no amount of money can fully compensate for the loss of a loved one due to wrongful death, it’s important to know your and your family’s rights. The amount of time you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Oregon is generally limited to three years from the date of death. You will need an experienced attorney who knows the specifics of the law as it pertains to wrongful death, as well as the expertise to interview witnesses, calculate losses and potential future losses, and the ability to navigate medical and insurance systems. You will need a personal injury lawyer who can provide winning results.
