Understanding The Struggles Of Those Who Have Lost Someone

Aggressively Fighting For Clients’ Rights

Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, is aggressive in fighting for clients’ rights. Lawyer Hammond files 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 wrecks and motorcycle crashes
  • Construction accidents and other work-related incidents
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Dangerous products

Since insurance companies represent premises owners, drivers, municipalities and others who may be responsible for wrongful deaths, 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 to always pay out the lowest amount possible.
