Lost a Loved One?
Families Have Rights! Let Our Nashville Wrongful Death Attorney Help You
The book of John tells us that we all shall die, and “in Christ shall all be made alive”. Nashville wrongful death attorney Stanley A. Davis knows that any death causes emotional, and often financial, difficulties for loved ones. Sadly, when that death is because of someone else’s negligence, the pain can be overwhelming. Loved ones left behind are angry and devastated, and this emotional upheaval can disrupt their lives. At the Law Office of Stanley A. Davis, we fight for the victims and the families; we do so because it is the right thing to do.
Common Causes of Wrongful Death
While any injury can result in a wrongful death, some of the most common causes of fatal accidents are:
- Vehicle accidents, including car accidents and truck accidents
- Slip and falls
- Catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries
How to Establish a Wrongful Death Case
Tennessee requires that two primary elements are present in any successful wrongful death lawsuit:
- A human being’s death was brought about because of the willful or negligent disregard of someone else
- A loss of love, care, guidance, supervision, comfort, household assistance and general social structure established beforehand to a great degree by the one now departed
What Damages Can Families Receive in Wrongful Death Claims?
The recovery of both economic and non-economic damages is a right available to the family members of wrongful death victims. Economic damage include the lost income from the deceased family member, medical expenses and funeral costs. Non-economic damages are those deemed appropriate when evaluating the many aspects of emotional loss experienced by loved ones.
