A Compassionate Wrongful Death Attorney
The death of a loved one is difficult for anyone, but when it is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another person, the tragedy can overwhelm the victim’s family and friends. Our team has seen the pained expressions, heard our clients’ tearful questions, and felt the heartache of their loss as we worked to resolve their wrongful death claim.
We understand money will not replace our clients’ loved one or necessarily dull the pain of their loss; however, we apply our experience and expertise to objectively gather the facts, compassionately answer our clients’ questions, and if necessary, zealously pursue their claims and the claims of their loved one’s estate.
In Montana, state law permits a representative of a wrongful death victim’s estate to file a claim. An estate representative could be an attorney or family member, and their relation to the wrongful death victim will vary between cases. Immediate family members — such as spouses and children — are generally the primary people who qualify to collect damages through a wrongful death case. If the victim was a child under the age of 18 at the time of their death, their parents or legal guardian can file a claim and recover compensation.
