Helping You Get Compensation For Your Loss In Wrongful Death Cases

Because they are in the midst of their grief, people who have lost a loved one due to wrongful death frequently don’t think about the fact that there may be a claim for money. Sad as you may be, however, you might need that compensation to survive, especially if your lost loved one was a financial provider for the family.

I can help. My law firm has taken on many Chickasaw County, Mississippi, wrongful death cases. I have the experience to know how difficult this situation is emotionally. As your lawyer, I will represent you with discretion and care while doing everything possible to get you the compensation you deserve for your loss. Contact me online or call 662-260-6646 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Helping You Recover Compensation In Your Time Of Need

Although many people don’t like to think about the possibility of a lawsuit right after losing a loved one, the fact is the law gives an avenue to provide valuable compensation for:

  • Loss of income that the deceased provided for the family
  • Children’s college fund
  • Retirement income
  • Unexpected costs of burial and funeral arrangements
  • Pain and suffering due to loss of companionship

After a wrongful death caused by an automobile accident or other personal injury, there is often the possibility for structured settlements, allowing for the children to receive money in smaller monthly installments rather than getting all the money at once.

Experienced Attorney Who Understands What You’re Going Through

I have been an attorney for more than 42 years, and I have the experience to handle some of the most catastrophic wrongful death cases.

My experience allows me to handle your case with discretion and understanding. I can also relate to your circumstances. I needed to learn how to move on with my life after my father died from a dangerous product when I was just 18 years old. I can represent you as your lawyer, and I can empathize with you as a person. I also remember vividly a near-death experience while horseback riding that I had when I was 11. Unfortunately, I had a friend who died in that same accident.

Fighting For Justice

No amount of money can bring your loved one back. However, for most of my clients, a successful wrongful death suit brings a sense of closure, and with the financial reward comes a sense of justice for the grieving survivors. It may also provide incentive to the manufacturers or person who caused the death to correct defects in the product or procedures. Your lawsuit may save others from severe injuries or death.

Either call my Okolona office or send me an e-mail for a free consultation. There are no legal fees unless I get you a settlement or win your case.
