Don’t let the Statute of Limitations Run Out
The statute of limitations in Wisconsin is different depending on the incident that caused your family member’s death.
- Two years: Timeframe for deaths caused by a motor vehicle accident, including car, truck & motorcycle accidents.
- Three years: Timeframe for deaths caused by negligence or other wrongful acts that did not involve a motor vehicle, including assault, daycare accidents & nursing home neglect.
Regardless of how much time you have, it’s imperative that you contact Warshafsky Law as soon as possible after the death has occurred. Waiting too long to seek legal counsel will result in a severe loss of evidence, which means an even greater loss in your settlement amount. The sooner you contact us, the more money we will win for you. Our 7-day checklist can help you keep track of everyone to notify immediately following a death.
What is fair compensation for your wrongful death case?
No one can put a price tag on your family member’s life, but the reality is that death is expensive. From medical bills to funeral costs, a sudden and unexpected death can leave you penniless. The person responsible for the loss of your loved one should be held responsible for the cost of their death.
Monetary damages to consider:
- Loss of expected income for deceased
- Funeral & burial costs
- Medical expenses
- Loss of inheritance
Compensation should not just cover monetary losses. A family member’s death is painful, and it may seem like nothing can make up for their loss. But you should still be compensated for all non-monetary damages too.
Types of non-monetary damages:
- Pain experienced by deceased
- Loss of care & guidance
- Shock & mental anguish
- Loss of companionship
- Emotional turmoil
- Loss of consortium
- Damage to reputation
Contact Warshafsky Law wrongful death law firm if you think you deserve compensation for the loss you and your family have suffered.
Don’t Let Them Get Away With It
There can be some confusion between criminal court and civil lawsuits. When someone has committed a crime, they are tried in criminal court. Regardless of the outcome in that case, it has NO bearing in what happens in a civil lawsuit.
Wrongful death claims are civil lawsuits. That means that whether the person responsible for your family member’s death has been found guilty, you still have a right to file a wrongful death claim against them. Even if they don’t serve jail time for what they did, the attorneys at Warshafsky Law will make sure they pay you for what they did to your family. We can help families both in Wisconsin and nationwide.
