Wrongful Death

When a loved one has been killed or seriously injured due to the negligence or carelessness of another party, not only are you dealing with overwhelming emotional trauma, you also may be experiencing the stress of settling your family member’s financial and legal affairs. The decisions you make during this trying time are important for your family’s future. Your family member may have been a significant or even the sole contributor to your family’s income, which can leave you feeling an overwhelming amount of stress. During this tragic and uncertain time in your life, Garry Whitaker is here to help. When the loss of your family member was the result of an accident, you may have options to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to receive compensation for:

• Funeral and burial expenses

• Loss of your family member’s financial support

• Loss of your family member’s services

• Loss of your family member’s companionship or society

• Loss of a prospective inheritance you might have received from your family member

• Mental anguish

Monetary compensation won’t bring your loved one back into your life, but it can help to protect your family’s future in the aftermath of your loss. Winston-Salem personal injury attorney Garry Whitaker understands the toll that the loss of a family member can take on you and your family. He can help you shoulder the burden of legal details so that you can focus on healing from your loss.
