Wrongful Death

Helping Families After a Terrible Loss

Nothing can prepare you for the loss of a loved one. And if that loss was the result of the negligence of another, it is natural to want to hold that person or business responsible. Tabor Law Firm, P.A. understands what people are going through after such a loss. Our attorneys fight to hold negligent parties responsible to get justice for your loved one.

There are many examples of wrongful death involving a personal injury accident. A driver killed in a car accident by someone operating a vehicle at recklessly high speeds. A factory worker killed in a workplace accident. A patient accidentally given a lethal dose of medicine. A senior who slips and falls, suffering a fatal blow to the head. A child who dies after the use of a defective product.

If Negligence Led to Your Loss, We Can Help

The one thing all of these examples have in common is that someone was negligent, and it led to an unnecessary loss of life. Our law firm can help you take legal action against the negligent parties. Money won't bring back your loved one. But it will help you rebuild your life, obtain some measure of justice and hold those parties accountable.

In Mississippi, a wrongful death suit can be filed by the surviving spouse, children, parents, or siblings, as well as a representative of the person's estate. The damages (financial compensation) that can be sought include:

  • Medical expenses related to your loved one's illness or injury before death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Payments for damaged or destroyed property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of future wages and benefits your loved one would have earned

Wrongful death cases are complicated. The negligent party is unlikely to accept responsibility, so we will have to prove their negligence led to the loss of your loved one. Our experienced legal team knows how to gather evidence to build a strong case. We search through all relevant documentation, including accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. Our attorneys work to find out what really happened.

Many times, the insurance company will agree to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. If not, we will be prepared to fight for justice for your loved one in court. Throughout the process, you can expect professionalism, personal attention and compassion from our firm.
