Wrongful Death

Document Title Wrongful Death

When someone is killed in an accident, the grief can be unbearable. But when the death was caused by someone's negligence, other emotions like anger, confusion and hopelessness can also emerge. Anger that someone's carelessness or recklessness has caused such pain and loss. Confusion over how and why the accident happened.  Often, families do not know what happened and they want and need to know these facts to help obtain closure.  Hopelessness over how to move forward with their lives.  In addition to the heart-wrenching emotional losses that come with losing a family member, there are often other issues such as how the family will survive economically, etc.  At The Law Offices of John Day, P.C. our attorneys and staff understand all of these emotions and we can help you successfully navigate through them and the legal process. 

For more than 30 years, John Day and our award-winning team has been representing families whose loved one has been killed in an accident caused due to the fault of another person or a company. These cases are often referred to as wrongful death cases.   Our lawyers understand the range of emotions our clients experience, and we are here to provide answers and to get you and your family the justice and compensation you deserve.

Below are links to the questions most frequently asked by our wrongful death clients:

  1. How did the accident happen and who is to blame?
  2. Who has the right to file a wrongful death suit?
  3. What types of damages are recoverable in a wrongful death suit?
  4. If money is recovered, who gets it?
  5. What is the deadline for bringing a wrongful death suit in Tennessee?

We handle all wrongful death cases on a contingency basis so we only get paid if we recover money for you and your family.  We also advance all cases expenses so you do not have to pay a penny out-of-pocket to pursue your legal rights and, unlike some injury lawyers, we advance these expenses interest-free.  

When hiring a lawyer to handle a wrongful death claim, it is critical for you to do your homework.  Your choice of lawyer can mean the difference between winning or losing.  It can also make a big difference in the amount of money you recover.  If you know a lawyer or a judge, we encourage you to ask them about our reputation.  We invite you to review the testimonials we have received from clients and our reviews on Google and Facebook.  We also suggest you read our FAQ page about Hiring an Injury Attorney and the questions you should ask of us or any other lawyer you are considering.
