If your loved one died because of a preventable accident or health complication, you may feel angry and frustrated. Would your loved one still be alive if the responsible party had been more attentive, conscientious, or cautious?

When people die because of another person’s or party’s negligence, it may be considered a wrongful death, and their family members may be eligible to file claims for compensation.

At Ponce Law, we know how to help if you lost a family member due to a preventable accident or medical mistake. Our lawyers can review the facts and circumstances of your loved one’s death to determine if it was a wrongful death. A wrongful death case must meet three criteria:

  1. The death was caused by negligence or with intent to cause harm. Whether they’re private citizens or healthcare professionals, everyone has a duty to avoid causing harm to others, either directly or indirectly.
  2. The death is causing or will cause your family financial problems. Losing a loved one is emotionally painful, but it can also put your family in a financial bind, especially if you relied on their income for day-to-day living expenses.
  3. A personal representative has been appointed for your loved one’s estate. To move forward with a wrongful death claim, someone must be appointed as the representative of your loved one’s estate. This is typically another family member.

All manner of fatal accidents can be considered wrongful deaths when victims lose their lives because of negligence. Our Nashville wrongful death lawyers can evaluate your loved one’s death. We can fight to protect their memory and your rights to compensation. Contact us today for a free consultation.

    Ponce Law assisted me after a very serious motor vehicle injury. The process, in my opinion, was extremely easy from the get go. I was kept well informed along the way, especially by my paralegal, Jennie Williams. She also responded very urgently whenever I had a question. Also, last minute, attorney Hannah Jones jumped in to assist me with the end of the process and I was extremely pleased with her knowledge and professionalism.

    I reached out to Ponce Law when my significant other and I were involved in an accident and Progressive denied our claim. Spencer and Jamelia were awesome and very professional with assisting us. After going back and forth with Progressive we were finally able to settle our case. If you have any issues with accident claims please refer to this law office, and ask specifically for Spencer and Jamelia.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
