My name is Sandra , and I was t-boned in a serious car accident. I suffered injuries that required numerous appointments such as physical therapy, mental health counseling, neurology and massage therapy. I contacted Hueser and Hueser, and they took care of absolutely everything. They were genuine and supportive, and answered any and all of my questions. Anytime I had questions or concerns, all I had to do was pick up the phone. I can’t imagine working with a more helpful team of professionals!

Great experience with the team, everyone was so helpful and Doug even opted to not take a legal due to him wanting me to benefit the most I could from my injury/experience. Highly recommend H&H for any personal injury case!

Has Your Family Experienced an Unfair Loss?

If your loved one was in a deadly accident that was someone else’s fault, contact Heuser & Heuser, LLP to learn whether you’re entitled to compensation.

What Compensation Is Available?

The jury will consider a number of factors while determining the amount of financial damages to award to you, including the deceased’s age and condition, resulting loss of income, loss of parental counsel and guidance, loss of support or services, costs for a funeral, and loss of inheritance.

The Heuser & Heuser, LLP legal team will bring in expert witnesses to testify with expectations or standard estimates for the losses described above. By working with experts like therapists and economists, we can show the jury the nature of your loss and the financial settlement necessary for you to live in relative comfort.

Far more challenging to calculate is the value of your relationship with the deceased, but part of preparing for the case includes us learning your story and deciding how to best present it. We will talk with those closest to you and create an image of that relationship for the jurors. Friends, coworkers, and family members will testify about the death’s effect on the family.

In some wrongful death cases, punitive damages — also called exemplary damages — may be awarded if the party at fault acted particularly recklessly or outrageously. Despite what many people believe, punitive damages are not routinely granted and are not a large amount when they are awarded.

How Can Heuser & Heuser, LLP Help?

Wrongful death lawsuits seek to provide financial compensation for family members who are left without a primary earner while also delivering the message to the at-fault party to practice greater safety in the future. Families may be able to find closure and justice in the case’s resolution.

You need the experts at Heuser & Heuser, LLP who have experience building airtight cases for the full compensation that victims’ families are legally owed.

Our wrongful death lawyers will take care of the legal work in the lawsuit, keeping you updated at each step of the way, allowing you to get back to grieving and healing with your family.
