When the negligent, careless or reckless act of another person has caused the death of your family member or loved one, your emotional well-being comes first. An experienced attorney knows how important the grieving process is to the loved ones of the deceased. However, it is also important to consult with an experienced and compassionate personal injury lawyer up front.
Our work begins with discovering all the facts of your case and gaining a full understanding of the circumstances surrounding the fatal accident. At Stumpf, Vickers & Sandy P.A., we are receptive to the terrible bereavement issues a family faces in such a difficult situation. Our partner attorney, Brian Dolan, who focuses exclusively on personal injury claims in Delaware, works with executors or administrators of estates to be sensitive to the issues of the bereaved. Still, discussing the full situation and getting the appropriate client involved as soon as possible allows a thorough investigation and the claim process to move forward.
Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation with Mr. Dolan. Our practical assessment includes development of strategies that meet your needs and pursue the compensation you deserve for losses, damages and funeral expenses.
Sussex County Fatal Accident Attorney
Wrongful death can occur as the result of a fatal auto accident, medical malpractice or any negligent act that causes a catastrophic accident. We work diligently and professionally to maximize the recovery to the estate of the deceased while managing expectations and coming to a communication agreement between survivors and the executor of the estate. This also involves extensive collaboration with an estate planning attorney to follow the terms of a will or estate plan.
We take all circumstances into full account and hold parties responsible for fatally negligent acts accountable. As representatives in legal proceedings and counsel to survivors, we are dedicated to helping our clients obtain compensation for all losses, including:
- Earnings, wages or support
- Pain and suffering
- Suffering prior to death and life-sustaining expenses
- Other medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Punitive damages, in certain cases
Decisions can be difficult and survivors may disagree on how to proceed at certain points during a wrongful death case. It is important to establish who will represent the interests of the estate from the beginning.
