Augusta Wrongful Death Lawyer

Thomson Fatal Accident Attorney

The loss of a loved one can be devastating, particularly when it happens without warning in an accident or because of human negligence or behavior. In many situations, family members of victims grieve while struggling to understand what legal recourse they may have.

If you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, we can help you deal with the legal elements of the tragedy. As personal injury attorneys, we cannot fix the loss, but we can help you understand your legal rights and pursue maximum compensation to help you cover:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Lost wages from your time away from work
  • Lost personal contribution and companionship from the deceased
  • Pain and suffering felt by you and your loved ones

Aggressively Fighting for Our Clients' Rights

At Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, we are aggressive in fighting for our clients' rights. We file claims seeking financial awards from negligent parties in wrongful death cases, usually on behalf of a family member. These lawsuits, which are referred to as survival actions, may involve:

  • Car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents
  • Construction accidents and other work-related incidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Dangerous products

Since insurance companies represent premises owners, drivers, municipalities and others who may be responsible for a wrongful death, you may be contacted by an insurance company representative with a settlement offer. It is not wise to accept the first settlement amount, since an insurance company's goal is always to pay out the lowest amount possible. As your lawyers, we will deal with the insurance companies while you concentrate on stabilizing your personal and family life.
