Legal Remedies When Negligence Results In Fatalities
An auto accident, a slip-and-fall incident or any accident caused by someone else’s negligence may justify a personal injury claim or lawsuit in Arizona. The negligence may consist of wrongful actions or the failure to take actions to protect people’s safety. If injuries are fatal, the same set of circumstances may be cause for a wrongful death claim.
Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, offers supportive wrongful death legal services to surviving family members in and beyond the Phoenix metro area. Our clients in and beyond the West Valley region often express appreciation for our warm welcome and convenient assistance as a local law firm. Easily accessible via I-10 from the east or west, our experienced, dedicated trial lawyers work hard to meet our clients’ needs at difficult times of their lives.
Our Clients Appreciate The Local Touch
From our law offices in Avondale, we can provide comfort and reassurance to our neighbors in Goodyear, Buckeye and Litchfield Park, to name a few nearby communities. Our many successful case outcomes demonstrate our ability to deliver results equivalent to those achievable through larger law firms in downtown Phoenix. A more personal atmosphere is often reassuring to family members seeking compensation through wrongful death claims.
From the beginning of a wrongful death claim to its conclusion and even afterward, we stay accessible to our clients, who may have any of these relationships to the deceased:
- The widowed spouse
- A personal representative of the estate
When any eligible plaintiff brings a wrongful death claim, the case will be considered representative of all who would qualify. If someone’s death through negligence may be classified as murder or manslaughter, such criminal charges will not eliminate the survivors’ right to bring a civil claim. A successful settlement or verdict will normally be paid out proportionately to any who are eligible, as Arizona’s statutes specify.
