Losing a loved one is one of the toughest things you’ll ever go through. It makes it even harder when their death could have been avoided. At Ponce Law, we believe those who cause the death of others due to negligence should be held accountable. That’s why we handle wrongful death cases, because we know the death of a loved one can pose significant financial challenges for the surviving family members.
If your loved one’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a wrongful death case. Although consulting with an attorney is the only way to be sure you have a case, there are some basic requirements to consider before getting a lawyer involved.
We need to be able to prove three things in order to file a lawsuit:
- The loved one’s death was the result of someone else’s negligence or a defective piece of equipment or product.
- The wrongful act, defect, or negligence would have entitled the deceased victim to file a personal injury claim had he/she only been injured, not killed.
- The death has caused financial damage to your family.
If this sounds like your situation, give our Nashville wrongful death attorneys a call immediately. Our team will investigate the cause of your loved one’s death and work to hold the responsible party accountable. Don’t wait to get the legal help you need. Give Ponce Law a call today.
