HYANNIS, AND PLYMOUTH, MA…
When a loved one dies in a fatal accident caused by someone else’s negligence, it’s difficult for the family to focus on the future without that loved one. Especially as that future becomes their present without a caregiver and/or provider—not to mention dealing with possible medical and burial bills associated with that death. The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III recently established a special Wrongful Death division specifically to help families deal with the devastation of a wrongful death.
“Losing a loved one is never easy, but when it occurs from negligence, it’s particularly overwhelming. Yet the hard reality in many cases is that the family is now without one of it is providers or caregivers and that cannot be quantified,” said John C. Manoog III. “Our Wrongful Death Division helps grieving families sort through the details of the accident swiftly so that they can receive appropriate compensation for their loss and better deal monetarily with their new reality.”
Adds Manoog, “What can be extremely unfortunate in these scenarios is that families may not realize they have a wrongful death case. Or perhaps they know and like the person responsible and don’t necessarily want to punish them. It’s still something they should discuss with an attorney simply for the future well being of the family.”
Wrongful deaths can be caused by car or motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice and even product liability claims. The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III’s Wrongful Death Division can represent the victim’s estate so the families can receive a fair settlement as quickly as possible.
Manoog’s Wrongful Death Division will address the following:
- Loss of income – Manoog experts will determine probable life expectancy and probable earnings over a lifetime.
- The value of a caregiver/parent – It’s difficult to quantify the loss of services. What does helping with homework, mowing the lawn, cooking dinner or being there add up to? The Wrongful Death Division attorneys paint a picture for the insurance company and for the jury so they can understand the depth of loss.
- Pain and suffering of the victim – Did your loved one have conscious pain and suffering as a result of the fatal accident? Were there medical bills and funeral expenses? The estate should be compensated.
“A wrongful death is tragic for all involved. What we try to do is take an awful situation and make it a little easier for the family,” said Manoog. “There’s no amount of money that will bring back that loved one. With our Wrongful Death Division, we can lessen the suffering by getting a financial recovery that makes it easier for the family.”
