After the sudden death of a loved one, you can be living in a state of shock and instability. Even though this is a stressful time, it is crucial to explore your legal options during this period. This is because if a loved one’s death was due to the negligence of another, there is limited time as to when you can file for a wrongful death suit in the state of Nevada. The lawyers at Bradley, Drendel and Jeanney are standing by to aid you and your family during this process.
If a loved one was killed in a drunk driving accident, there could be good reason to explore a wrongful death lawsuit. If a driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident, he or she did not exercise reasonable care, which could be found to be a direct cause for your loved one’s death. Every person on the road is held accountable to a standard of reasonable care.
Depending on the circumstances of your loved one’s death, there could be several reasons to seek compensation related to the incident. There are likely high medical or funeral costs associated with your loved one’s death. Also, all future losses should be considered such as loss of wages that would have supported a family of the person who lost their life too soon.
We believe in fighting for your rights if you were wronged by another party. The attorneys at our firm have years of experience in handling these kinds of cases. Wrongful death does not just affect the person who lost their life, it also impacts the family unit and changes the lives of everyone involved.
