Help For Those Who Lost A Loved One To Wrongful Death
When tragedy occurs and your loved one dies in an accident caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions, it can be hard to imagine filing a wrongful death claim at the same time you are coping with so much grief. Thankfully, you do not have to manage the process of seeking justice for your loss on your own.
At Harper and Harper, LLC, our attorneys have more than 100 combined years of experience representing the needs of loved ones across northwestern Indiana through their wrongful death claims. We see these claims as an opportunity for us to help our community get back on their feet after one of the darkest chapters in their lives, and we want to be there for you after your loss.
Why You Should File A Claim
In Indiana, only the personal representative of the decedent’s estate can file a wrongful death claim, and with all of the other obligations they need to attend to, they may not want to file a claim at all. We want you to understand just what a wrongful death claim can offer you, including benefits such as:
- Seeking justice against the party who is responsible for your loved one’s death
- Establishing the consequences of the actions that caused the loss, in the hope that no one else sufferers a similar fate
- Securing compensation for what the decedent brought to your family, like lost income, retirement contributions, medical coverage, consortium and other factors
- Receiving compensation for the expenses of the incident, including medical bills and funeral costs
Our goal as your legal representation is to minimize the obligation you have in your claim while we fight to maximize its outcome. This way, you can focus on your grieving process while we keep you informed about what we are doing for you throughout your claim. While resolving these claims through negotiation is often the favorable resolution method, our lawyers are prepared to fight for you through litigation if it is necessary to achieve the outcome you deserve.
