Wrongful Death

We Want to Help with Your Family’s Wrongful Death Claim

Losing a loved one can forever change a family. Not only are they grieving the person they lost, but they’re also hurting financially because they can no longer rely on that income. These challenges can be even more difficult to accept when the loved one’s death was preventable and caused by someone else’s negligence.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke wrongful death lawyers work hard to help grieving families get fair settlements for their losses. There are so many damages that can and should be compensated after wrongful deaths, including:

  • Medical bills: Many families are billed for expensive surgical procedures and other attempts at life-saving treatments after their loved ones die. Even with health insurance, these procedures may be more than they can afford.
  • Lost wages: When a loved one dies, their current and future income is gone forever. That includes potential promotions and increases in pay due to career advancement. Their families are often left struggling to make ends meet, especially if the deceased was the primary or sole income-earner.
  • Pain and suffering: There are few things more painful than losing a loved one. When we build damages claims for our clients, we demand that insurance companies take their psychological losses into consideration and adequately compensate them for what they’re going through.
