The Tragedy Of A Wrongful Death
Unexpectedly losing a loved one is one the greatest hardships a family can face. When the death was caused by the recklessness or negligence of another, it becomes a tragedy. Nothing can bring your loved one back, but you can get some closure by holding the person responsible accountable. At the Law Office of Shelly Kay Flot, PC, we help families get compensation when they lose a loved one to a preventable death.
Getting Compensation For Your Loss
The heartache of losing a loved one is often compounded by the burden of unforeseen medical bills, funeral expenses and the loss of family income. Compensation for lost wages is often the difference between being able to stay on top of your monthly bills and financial ruin. A wrongful death lawsuit can help your family recover financially from your sudden loss. With our firm by your side, we can work together to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Fighting On Your Behalf
Wyoming has a comparative fault rule that insurance companies often try to use to reduce the size of settlement checks in wrongful death cases. The comparative fault rule determines whether and to what degree the deceased may have been responsible for their own death. The degree of fault is presented as a percentage; the higher the percentage of fault assigned to the deceased, the lower the settlement amount.
At Law Office of Shelly Kay Flot, PC, we fight the insurance companies and make sure the responsible parties are held accountable and see to it that you get a fair settlement. Money won’t bring back your loved one, but it can prevent a financial crisis from magnifying the tragedy.
