Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death

Rely on our compassionate and experienced Tennessee wrongful death lawyers

There are few things more difficult in life than losing a loved one due to someone else’s reckless behavior. At Meade Law Group, we sympathize with Tennessee families who have lost loved ones due to negligence. Sometimes the loss is at the hands of a Tennessee drunk driver. Other times it’s due to an error by a doctor, which may lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.

We understand your frustration and anger. If you lost a loved one, do not hesitate to talk about your situation with an experienced attorney. We are committed to helping clients pursue the maximum compensation they deserve for a wrongful death. Please contact us promptly for a free and confidential consultation. Call (423) 464-7779.

A wrongful death claim is often difficult. It’s a hard step for the survivors to even begin to pursue a lawsuit. No amount of money can bring back someone you lost, but you may soon realize you have very real losses, financial and emotional.

If you have lost a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of support services
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Punitive damages
  • General damages
  • Loss of companionship

Wrongful death cases also will face a great deal of opposition from the insurance company for the negligent individual or business. The insurance company may try to say the person who died was responsible for his or her death. Meade Law Group is familiar with the tactics the insurance companies take to minimize claims and compensation. We know how to respond. We take aggressive action against the insurance companies and fight for every penny our clients rightfully deserve. Our law firm is skilled at examining all the details in the case needed to prove negligence and determine responsibility. If you require the services of a Tennessee wrongful death attorney, rely on our firm.

A wrongful death can happen as a result of any type of negligent action, including but not limited to any of the following circumstances:

  • Auto accidents
  • Tractor trailer accidents
  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice

How a wrongful death lawyer in Tennessee can help

If you suffered the loss of a loved one through a wrongful death, don’t delay taking action. The statute of limitations limits the time you have to initiate legal proceedings. In Tennessee, you generally have one year from the time of death to begin legal proceedings. Don’t wait until the last minute. Call (423) 464-7779 now to see how we can help.
