Sensitive Collierville Lawyer Seeks Justice for Victims of Wrongful Death
Experienced attorney assists families who’ve lost loved ones
When a family member is killed due to the negligence of another party, the loss is devastating. The victim’s death is felt in many ways — from the loss of income to the loss of companionship.
If you find yourself in this unfortunate circumstance, you do not have to face it alone. With compassion and understanding, Tennessee lawyer Bill Hagan of The Collierville Law Firm walks you through the process of bringing a wrongful death action. We fight tirelessly on your behalf and won’t rest until you have received the compensation you deserve for the death of your family member.
Filing a wrongful death claim in Tennessee
If your spouse dies due to someone else’s negligence, you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim. If the victim had no spouse, the claim may be filed by the following persons, in order:
- Surviving children
- Surviving parents
- The estate’s personal representative
Wrongful death is a civil claim like any other personal injury claim. There is a one-year statute of limitations, meaning you must file your wrongful death lawsuit within one year of your loved one’s death.
Wrongful deaths can arise from many different scenarios, including:
- Construction accidents
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Physical violence
Bill Hagan has more than 25 years of experience pursuing wrongful death claims in Collierville and throughout Tennessee. He identifies the merits of your case, stands up to the tough negotiators at the insurance companies, hires economic, accident and other technical experts and, if necessary, presents your case to a jury.
