Seeking Compensation from Responsible Parties

A wrongful death claim is based on civil wrongdoing that resulted in the death of the decedent and can be brought by family members, such as a spouse or children. A case is filed against the wrongdoer on behalf of the decedent’s estate. We devote special time, attention, and resources to these cases. At Hayhurst Law, we want to make sure that the family is compensated for all their losses, both emotional and financial. We strive to protect your rights and ensure your family does not have to endure additional hardship.

The following are the elements of a wrongful death cause of action:

  • The death of a person
  • That death being caused by another’s negligence or with intent to cause harm
  • The survival of family members, with those individuals suffering monetary and emotional injury resulting from the death
  • The appointment of a personal representative on behalf of the decedent’s estate

When facing this type of lawsuit, you need the help of a trustworthy and knowledgeable wrongful death lawyer. In Morgantown, Hayhurst Law has the resources to help guide you through the process and to give you the very best chance to receive the monetary damages you deserve.
