When a family suffers the wrongful death of a loved one because of someone else’s carelessness, the fact that the loss was avoidable and unnecessary only worsens the pain. Most families — especially in Buffalo — face serious financial questions following an unexpected death. At a time when the family is already grieving, they’re also asking “How can I pay the mortgage without my spouse’s income?” or “Who’s going to help take care of the kids?”
While no amount of money can replace a loved one, you can make a claim to assure that your family has the financial means to cope with the aftermath of wrongful death. Surviving family members have the right to make a claim for their economic losses. These include lost income, funeral expenses and even some less tangible items such as loss of parental nurturing and guidance.
"My elderly Mother who's deceased, was in Sister's hospital being treated for a stroke, the social worker met with myself (power of attorney) in regards to placement for a Rehabilitation center; however without my prior knowledge and consultation with my mother, she was transferred wrapped up in sheets against her will, without knowledge of where she was going and without me being contacted in the middle of the winter. After arriving to the Hospital for a routine visit, I discovered this , immediately in route to the Rehabilitation center, I contacted Attorney John V. Elmore, he calmed me down, listened very attentively, he empathize with my anger, and informed me of my Mother's rights and my legal options. He's proven to be dedicated to helping all people receive fair and just treatment." -Stephen
