There may be no event that you will ever face that is more difficult than the unexpected loss of a loved one. When a loved one is taken from us in a fatal accident that occurred due to another person's negligence, however, it only adds to the tragedy of the entire situation. Surviving family members have the right to be compensated for the losses they suffer as the result of a loved one's death. An experienced Rochester wrongful death lawyer can help to ensure that their interests are protected.
At the law firm of Ryan & Grinde, Ltd., we represent clients throughout southeastern Minnesota in complex wrongful death claims arising from a variety of causes, including fatal car accidents, fatal motorcycle accidents and accidents involving defective products. Though the legal implications of your loved one's passing may be the furthest thing from your mind at the moment, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified personal injury lawyer who can help you understand your rights and legal options.
Helping You Through A Difficult Time
We know that there is no amount of money that will make up for the loss of your loved one. It is only our hope that we can help you secure the financial support you need as you work through this extremely difficult time. We work closely with you to understand the impact of your loved one's death on your family and your household. We work directly with the insurance companies in pursuit of a fair settlement and seek to resolve the matter in the most expedient and pain-free manner possible.
Depending on the circumstances of your specific case, we may be able to seek compensation for the following:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Loss of income
- Loss of future retirement benefits
- Loss of comfort and companionship
- Loss of assistance and guidance
Punitive damages may also be available in cases where there is clear and convincing evidence that the negligent party's behavior has shown a deliberate disregard for the well-being of others. Punitive damages are intended to punish the negligent party for his or her conduct. We carefully review every case to determine whether punitive damages may be available.
