How Geisleman & Brown Can Help
It is our goal to obtain the best resolution possible for your case whether it be a settlement or trial jury. Preparing each case as if it were going to trial, we will investigate your claim and ensure we fully understand the extent of your loss to effectively convey this to a jury of your peers if necessary.
In assessing the damages required, multiple factors must be examined, such as: dependency, the nature of the relationship, anticipated lifespan of the decedent, future loss of earnings and the presence of any comparative fault. We will assert your right to obtain fair compensation for the following:
- The loss of income and other benefits such as pensions, retirement plans, health insurance coverage
- Medical expenses for the care, treatment and hospitalization related to the injuries that resulted in death
- Non-economic damages such as mental anguish, the loss of companionship, support or parental guidance
- Direct expenses such as funeral or burial expenses
