Attorneys for Wrongful Death Victims in East Tennessee

A wrongful death action provides a measure of justice by holding the negligent party publicly accountable for a preventable death. Yet the real purpose is to compensate the survivors for the loss of the person and the person's contributions.

A wrongful death lawsuit is brought on behalf of the surviving spouse, dependent children, parents, adult children or siblings. Damages may include:

  • Medical bills and funeral expenses
  • Conscious pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death
  • Loss of projected earnings
  • Loss of household services
  • A spouse's loss of consortium and companionship
  • A child's loss of love and parental guidance
  • A parent's loss of love, society, and affection

Our role is to establish liability if disputed and to detail the "pecuniary value of the person's life" in tangible terms (monetary damages). We have handled many types of wrongful death, including fatal auto accidents and truck accidents, fatal construction accidents or work-related accidents, and deaths resulting from medical negligence.
