Wilmington, Delaware, Wrongful Death Lawyers
The civil justice system can play a role in a family’s healing process following a wrongful death. While there is no amount of money that can compensate a family for the loss of a loved one, a financial settlement can help bring closure so the family can deal with their grieving process and attempt to move on. It can also provide a reasonable amount of money for the family to do something that perpetuates the memory of their family member.
Wrongful Death Legal Settlements
At the law firm of Shelsby & Leoni in Wilmington, Delaware, our Wrongful Death Lawyers represent family members of wrongful death victims in Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. Our lawyers recently represented the family of a teenager who died as a passenger in a car accident due to the driver’s negligence. We settled the case for a significant amount of money, which provided the family with compensation and assisted in the healing process. The family used a settlement to establish a college fund for their other children and also to set up a fund in memory of their son.
The civil justice system can also hold wrongdoers accountable. In one case involving a fatal truck accident, our lawyers learned through discovery that a drug test of the driver of the truck showed traces of cocaine in his system following the accident. In this case, we obtained a settlement of almost $5 million for the family. The facts of each case are different, but we will work with you to obtain justice for your losses.
