When a death is caused by someone else’s negligence, it is called “wrongful death.” This can occur in any number of ways, including car crash, trucking crash, medical malpractice, and product liability. If someone dies due to the negligence of another person or company, an experienced wrongful death lawyer is needed. Snyder & Wenner has successfully litigated wrongful death cases in Phoenix, Arizona (and the greater Phoenix area) for more than 35 years. We take cases that many other law firms are unable to handle, which is evidenced by the fact that law firms from all over the country seek out Snyder & Wenner for help in litigating wrongful death cases. In fact, we have some of the largest settlements and verdicts for wrongful death cases in Arizona.
What makes Snyder & Wenner’s approach to wrongful death cases different? First, we take the time necessary to meet with the family to fully understand the loss. The death of a parent or child is not a simple, straightforward loss, and we spend hours upon hours getting to know the family and how the wrongful death has affected them. Second, we get the best experts from throughout the country to help prove the case. This is a very expensive endeavor, which many firms cannot afford. We spare no expense to ensure we have the best of the best. Third, we work up every case as if it is going to trial. Most cases do settle, but if your case does not settle, we would be ready to go to trial the next day. Unfortunately, wrongful death cases can take years to fully litigate, but we are with you every step of the way to guide you and to protect your family.
Wrongful death cases do not just compensate the family for their terrible pain and suffering (called “general damages”). If the victim was working (in the household or in the workforce), a wrongful death case can also compensate the family for those lost earnings (called “special damages”). The grief is overwhelming enough, and losing a much-needed income can be crippling to a family.
