Standing With Families After Tragic Accidents
If you have lost a loved one due to the carelessness or wrongdoing of another, you have the right to pursue compensation for the hardships you have endured and will continue to endure. Obtaining fair compensation, however, may be an uphill struggle. Wrongful death laws are complex, and insurance companies aggressively defend against plaintiffs’ claims.
If this sounds overwhelming, do not despair. The attorneys at McDowell & Morrissette, PA, are here to help you understand the law and advocate on your behalf.
We are compassionate allies and formidable advocates for clients in Manchester and throughout New Hampshire.
What Compensation Is Available?
The amount of damages available in a wrongful death claim depends upon the particular facts of the case. New Hampshire wrongful death laws allow surviving family members to pursue compensation for:
- Conscious pain and suffering the decedent endured prior to death
- Lost earnings the decedent could have been expected to earn had he or she lived
- Loss of care, companionship and guidance suffered by surviving loved ones
- Final medical expenses related to the accident
- Funeral and burial expenses
If you are pursuing a wrongful death claim in New Hampshire, it is important to have an experienced attorney protecting your interests. The at-fault party (or its insurance provider) will likely employ sophisticated legal strategies to limit or deny your compensation. With more than 100 years of combined trial experience, we know how to counter these tactics and present compelling cases on behalf of our clients.
