Count on the Hughes & Coleman® Injury Lawyers Team to Help You Recover Wrongful Death Damages

At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, we pride ourselves on our dedication to getting surviving family members the compensation they deserve after losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligent or wrongful behavior. We will hold the responsible party accountable and help you collect the money you need.

We know how to build a thorough, wrongful death case that makes the other party’s liability clear. It requires us to prove these three conditions:

  • Another party caused your loved one’s death.
  • The party failed to uphold a duty of care to your loved one.
  • You incurred damages because of your loved one’s death.

Another Party Caused Your Loved One’s Death

We first must show that another party caused your loved one’s death. The death may have resulted from the party’s wrongful action or lack of action.

In the case of a car accident, for instance, we will show that the other party committed a specific negligent or reckless action, such as running a red light, that led to your loved one’s death.

If your loved one died from medical malpractice, we might show, for example, that the doctor failed to act in a certain way that their profession required and that may have saved your loved one’s life.

The Other Party Failed to Uphold a Duty of Care

Next, we must show that in causing your loved one’s death, the responsible party failed to uphold a duty of care. Even if they did not have an obvious or explicit responsibility, we can often uncover one. Medical malpractice, for instance, is usually cut-and-dry in this area, because doctors have an explicit duty of care to their patients.

However, breach of a duty of care in other types of wrongful death cases can be less clear. For example, all drivers have an implicit duty to watch out for other drivers and pedestrians and to avoid unsafe, careless, or reckless behavior behind the wheel.

You Incurred Damages Because of Your Loved One’s Death

The last step is showing that you incurred specific damages from the death of your loved one. In a wrongful death case, you can recover both economic and noneconomic damages.

Economic damages refer to those involving actual financial losses: medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, funeral costs, and the like.

Noneconomic damages are ones involving more subjective losses, such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship.

The Hughes & Coleman® Injury Lawyers Team Wants to Help You Win Your Wrongful Death Case No Matter the Circumstances

Our team of wrongful death lawyers in Murfreesboro can help you recover damages in a variety of situations. As long as your case meets the three conditions described above — another party caused the death, the party failed to uphold a duty to your loved one, and you incurred damages — then we can hold the other party liable.

Some common wrongful death situations we handle include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect
  • Fire and burn injuries
  • Premises liability
  • Defective products
  • Brain injuries
  • Birth injuries

Even if the cause of your loved one’s death is not on that list, we want to talk to you. Since every case has unique features and attributes, we take the time to evaluate yours before we get into the specifics of how we can help. This initial evaluation is free and carries no risk or obligation. You can set yours up by calling 800-800-4600.

Do Not Let Your Time Limit to Take Action Expire — Call a Wrongful Death Lawyer in Murfreesboro Today

In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for wrongful death cases is one of the strictest in the nation. You have only one year from your loved one’s death to take legal action. If you let this time limit expire, you will most likely be unable to file a lawsuit or recover any type of compensation. This is true no matter how strong your case or how much evidence you have.

Unfortunately, we have seen too many times where someone has gotten caught up in the grieving process and everything else that goes along with losing a loved one, and they have let the statute of limitations expire. While this is understandable, we do not want that to happen to you. Make time to speak with one of our Murfreesboro wrongful death lawyers as soon as possible. We know this is a challenging time and want to help in any way we can.
