Tony on wrongful death

Why Hire an Attorney for Wrongful Death

Why do we need to hire a Flagstaff Lawyer to settle your car accident case? This is a question that we ask ourselves after experiencing a car accident. Our initial instincts are to call a lawyer. But who do we call first? The insurance company.

Insurance companies know that after a person is in an accident, they are going to call the responsible party’s insurance company first. For this reason, insurance companies are friendly and courteous. They want to help you settle your case as quickly as possible. You think that the insurance company is on your side. You start to feel thankful. After your vehicle is fixed, they offer you some money for your trouble. At this point, you tell them that you are sore and stiff – and maybe have pain. What do they say? They remind you that you said you were fine after the accident. They tell you that you cannot change your mind. Next thing you know is that the insurance company mails you a check for a few hundred bucks and calls it a day.

This happens way too often. This is the reason you need to hire experienced accident Flagstaff Attorney. At the law offices of Gonzales and Poirier, we are accident Flagstaff Laywers. We are trial lawyers and are not afraid to file lawsuits when necessary. Like our advertisement says, “We Sue Negligent Drivers.” We know that insurance companies will try to swindle you out of necessary money that could pay for your medical treatment or money for your pain and suffering. After an accident you may not immediately feel sore or stiff or even have pain. But you will later. When? It might not occur for several days, weeks or months. Shouldn’t the responsible party have to pay for this? Yes. Hiring a car accident Flagstaff Attorney will be the best decision you ever make.

Wrongful Death is the taking of a life of another individual through the willful or negligent act of another person or persons. According to A.R.S §12-611, to justify a law suit there must be another party which is liable for the actions leading to a loss of an individuals life. The people who are capable of presenting a justified law suit are known as the “Party Plaintiffs” and are defined by A.R.S §12-612 as: the decedent’s husband or wife; the decedent’s children, both natural and adopted; the decedent’s natural parents, adoptive parents, or guardians; and the personal representative for the decedent’s estate.

At the Law Offices of Gonzales and Poirier we are wrongful death Flagstaff Attorneys who know how difficult it is to lose a loved one.

A wrongful death case is an incredibly complicated process that can take an extraordinary amount of time and can be very expensive. Hiring a law firm who is knowledgeable in the field will take care of all of these factors that tie in with this type of case, and in doing so, relieve you of a lot of stress in your time of grief, all while ensuring a more prompt result in your suit.

In Arizona, the statute of limitations for wrongful death is under A.R.S §12-504, and states that actions regarding the decedent’s suit must occur within 2 years of the individual’s death.

The U.S Department of Justice reported that 90% of cases regarding medical malpractice have involved a permanent disability or wrongful death.

In wrongful death cases, damages awarded tend to take into account the following:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Adequate compensation for pain and suffering caused

These costs deal directly with the victim, but other compensation may be awarded to the family for things such as:

  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Loss of income that will affect the family
