Here for You in Your Time of Need
Nothing can replace a loss of life. All anyone can hope for is a transition through that painful period made as easily as possible. This means that the parties responsible for the wrongful death are held accountable. Since 1932, the legal professionals at Howerton, Dorris, Stone & Lambert have helped the residents of Southern Illinois to obtain restitution for damages lost in a preventable accident.
What Is Wrongful Death?
According to the Illinois Wrongful Death Act, any time a person’s death was caused by, “wrongful act, neglect or default,” it means the death should have been preventable. At HDLS, we use our resources to help clients prove the fault of the other party in a wrongful death. By doing all in our power to hold the other party responsible for their misconduct, we have been able to help clients obtain appropriate settlements.
A wrongful death could be:
- Wrongful behavior, such as criminal activity
- Preventable workplace accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Vehicle accident
- Resulting from unsafe premises
How Our Firm Can Help
With many of our attorneys having argued cases at venues as significant as the U.S. Supreme Court, we understand what it takes to present the evidence and viewpoints that secure the settlements clients need. A thorough understanding of the case is key, so we have an investigator on our staff to help us learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of a client’s position. With a solid legal strategy, clients are more likely to obtain the settlement outcome they both want and indubitably deserve.
