The untimely death of a cherished person is the ultimate tragedy any family can face, and death caused by someone else is always untimely, regardless of the age of the person who died. One of the most difficult things in life is dealing with the loss of a loved one. This is especially true if the death was the result of someone else’s negligence or error.
You might be reading this while also being in shock, denial, or unrelenting pain. The important thing at this moment from a legal perspective is to not allow your shock, denial, or grief to influence your decisions about how best to move forward. It can be tough to decide whether going forward with legal action is the proper thing to do. You may want to consider legal action to provide financial security for you and your family. You may also want to force the responsible party to implement measures to ensure the conduct that caused your family member’s death will never happen again. If you are dealing with those issues and would like a free consultation, Mark Rater can provide you with the guidance you need to make an informed decision about how and whether to proceed.
Contacting a wrongful death attorney in Council Bluffs, Iowa or Omaha, Nebraska is surely the last thing that you ever wanted to find yourself doing. This can be particularly burdensome for a surviving spouse, minor children, or other family members who may have relied on the deceased person for financial as well as emotional support. For that reason, you should strongly consider taking action that might help you survive financially and collect damages you are rightfully owed, which includes contacting a wrongful death lawyer if you suspect that wrongdoing caused the death.
Unfortunately, no one can do the one thing that you most want, which is to bring back your loved one. However, Mark Rater can help prepare you to move forward with the financial part of your life, as well as bring strong justice to bear against the wrongdoer. A wrongful death lawsuit can also help prevent the responsible party from continuing the same type of behavior in the future, thus potentially sparing others the same terrible fate your loved one suffered and the pain you are experiencing.
