Wrongful Death Attorney
Seeing the full value of someone’s life
After the initial shock of a loved one’s untimely death, you might find yourself with the added grief of knowing this death never should have happened. Perhaps it is an obvious situation of someone’s bad choice. Other times, it may be a nagging sense –one you cannot yet fully explain – that this death was not just nature taking its course.
We can help. When one person’s bad behavior ends another’s life, that is called wrongful death. If there has been a wrongful death, the law provides compensation to the family for the full value of the loved one’s remaining life. At Cook & Tolley, we have years of experiencing learning about loved ones’ lives and getting full compensation for their families.
It is an honor to help families with a wrongful death case. You have enough grief to carry. Let us take the stress of pursuing justice for you.
Please do not delay
Sometimes, it can be hard to decide whether to pursue a wrongful death case. Folks might be telling you, “Money isn’t going to bring them back,” and that is true. However, it also is true that justice requires holding people responsible for their choices, especially when those choices lead to someone’s death. At Cook & Tolley, we will listen to you. Together, we can figure out what course of action is best for you and your family.
If you suspect that your loved one died because of someone else’s bad behavior, please contact us without delay. Many wrongful death cases need to be filed within two years of the death, and it can take time to investigate and prepare the case.
