When you lose a loved one, you lose their companionship, love, and financial support. The grieving process is difficult enough, but it can be even more devastating when you’re left wondering how you’ll support yourself and your family members after your loved one is gone.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville wrongful death lawyers know what you’re going through. We’ve helped many families just like yours get compensation for the losses of their loved ones. We fight hard to help our clients get money for things like lost income, medical and funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and lost companionship.

Wrongful death claims are varied, but many are due to a few common accidents and scenarios, including:

  • Auto accidents—When drivers are negligent, drunk, reckless, or aggressive, they can be held liable for the injuries or deaths of others.
  • Medical malpractice—Hospitals and healthcare providers can be considered responsible for the deaths of patients when they fail to uphold their duties to provide safe and cautious medical care.
  • Defective products—Product manufacturers are required to test their industrial, consumer, and medical devices before releasing them to the market. When they fail to do so and people get hurt or killed, they can be held liable.

Those are just a few of the situations that can lead to wrongful death claims. If your loved one died due to another person’s or party’s negligence, we want to hear from you. Call today for a free consultation.
