“My son was badly hurt when he was hit while riding his bike. The insurance company said he ‘darted out’ and denied the claim. I got letters from a dozen Milwaukee lawyers. Someone I trusted recommended K&P. They immediately investigated and sued. They hired experts and won the case. I can’t thank them enough.”

“I was injured when struck violently from behind by a drunk driver. I spoke with Attorney Keberle personally the first time I contacted his firm and he worked on my case for more than a year. He did a great job demanding fair compensation and ultimately got me a very fair settlement”
“I was seriously injured and flown flight-for-life. Instead of hiring someone from Milwaukee, I chose Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg, LLP. I can’t imagine being better represented. They are respected, fought every step of the way, went to the Supreme Court and ultimately won my case.”

Your Rights in a Washington County Wrongful Death Case
When you lose someone you love, one of the most important steps you need to take with your attorney is finding out who the liable party is in your loved one’s case. It could be a single person, a company or even a government entity. What makes a party liable is either an action or inaction that directly caused the fatal accident. They will have to answer to your wrongful death claim.
The law states that only a specific designated person can bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one. Typically that means family. The first person that is typically given rights to bring a wrongful death claim is the spouse. If they do not have one, it would then be their minor children, and if they are childless, it is the victim’s parents who can receive the compensation. Sometimes a financially dependent sibling can bring a case. These issues are something to discuss with your attorney.
The plaintiff will be seeking compensation for:
- Medical bills from life-saving treatment for your loved one
- Final expenses; funeral and burial
- Lost wages and earning capacity your loved one would have provided to their family
- Loss of consortium
It is extremely difficult to determine right away how much a wrongful death case will be worth in compensation because there are the economic damages as well as non-economic damages to consider. Your loved one’s life expectancy will be calculated to determine how many years they would have been working and how much they would have earned during that time. That will be a huge factor in the amount of compensation that you are awarded. Our Washington County wrongful death attorneys are going to be right by your side to help you through this part of the case.
Types of Wrongful Death Cases Our Attorneys Handle
