Compassionate representation in Lafayette
It is never easy to lose a loved one. But when a loved one was lost due to the negligence of someone else, it can be especially devastating. The wrongful death attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan can provide compassion and guidance through this difficult time and help you recover financial compensation for your loss.
We represent the families of loved ones who lost their lives in car, truck or motorcycle accidents, and other types of personal injury accidents. These accidents occurred because of the negligence of another person. We hold those negligent parties accountable and pursue compensation for damages.
Of course, no amount of money can return your loved one to you. But we can help you get justice for the loss of your loved one by proving another person was negligent. And if your loved one was a provider, financial compensation can provide some financial stability for your family. Results matter here.
How we can help your family
There are many damages that can be sought in a wrongful death suit, including:
- Loss of financial support for family and dependents
- Loss of personal companionship
- Funeral expenses
- Pain and suffering (yours or your loved one's, depending on the state where the accident occurred)
- Medical expenses related to the accident
- Punitive damages
There are challenges and obstacles in any wrongful death lawsuit. The negligent parties often deny any responsibility for causing the accident. Insurance companies may dispute their liability. They may even suggest your loved one was somehow to blame for what happened. Our attorneys know how to overcome these and other challenges and obstacles.
Fighting on behalf of your loved one
What's the secret to our success? We investigate your loved one's accident to get the facts for ourselves. We gather evidence and review all documentation. We identify and interview witnesses who saw what happened. And if needed, we consult with experts who can help us understand what caused the accident and who was responsible.
Our attorneys build a strong case that proves negligence led to the accident that took your loved one. Many times, we are able to reach a favorable settlement with the insurance company and avoid a trial. But if the insurance company won't agree to a reasonable settlement, we are ready to fight for your loved one in court.
You may be unsure about whether you have a case or not. That's normal. We encourage you to come in for a free consultation with a wrongful death attorney. We understand this is a very difficult time. You can expect compassion and an honest assessment about whether taking legal action might be something to consider. Contact us today. Call 765-742-0056.
