Don’t let the Statute of Limitations Run Out
At Warshafsky Law Firm in southeast Wisconsin, we hold the defendant accountable for the pain they caused after they took your family member’s life. The longer you wait to call us, the more evidence against the defendant will slip away.
The statute of limitations in Wisconsin is either two or three years, depending on the type of incident that caused your loved one’s death.
- Two years: if death was caused by a motor vehicle accident, including car, truck & motorcycle accidents.
- Three years: if death was caused by negligence or other wrongful acts that did not involve a motor vehicle, including assault, daycare accidents & nursing home neglect.
If your loved one experienced an injury-inducing incident caused by another person’s actions and later died as a result of the injuries, you need to contact our wrongful death attorneys immediately. The sooner you bring your case to court, the faster we will prove their negligence. That means more money in your settlement.
What is fair compensation for your wrongful death case?
Calculating the exact amount of damages is difficult for those without the extensive legal experience our attorneys have here at Warshafsky Law.
Things to consider:
- Yearly salary used by deceased to support family
- Any medical expenses acquired before death
- Funeral expenses for deceased
If you’ve lost a spouse, sibling, mother or father, don’t forget there are other factors to consider beyond just monetary losses. That includes the loss of consortium, which is just one type of general damage. This factors in the loss of everything that money can’t buy. No one can put a dollar amount on the love, affection and experiences you will lose when your family member dies. But you deserve to be compensated for your non-economic losses in any way you can.
Other forms of general damages:
- Shock & mental anguish
- Loss of companionship
- Emotional turmoil
- Damage to reputation
When general damages are argued in court, your personal relationship with the deceased will be discussed in great detail and kept on public record. Our legal team will prepare you for these potentially difficult discussions with professionalism and understanding.
Criminal Court vs. Civil Lawsuit
Some families feel helpless if the person responsible for their spouse, parent or sibling’s death has already “won” in criminal court. Regardless if there was a criminal trial against the defendant, and no matter what the outcome of that trial was, it has NO effect on a wrongful death civil lawsuit brought against that person.
If a person is found guilty in criminal court, the punishment is usually jail time. If a person is found liable in civil court, the punishment is monetary.
It’s much harder to prove someone is guilty in a criminal case than in a civil lawsuit because the jury needs to prove the defendant is guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt.” That means the jury needs to unanimously agree 100% the defendant is guilty. In a civil lawsuit, liability only needs to be 50.1% likely. That means even if the person responsible for your family member’s death has been found “innocent” in criminal court, our lawyers can still prove they are liable in civil court, and they will pay for what they did.
