Losing a loved one is always hard. If you’ve lost someone to a senseless tragedy caused by the reckless behavior or negligent actions of another it is even more traumatic. Given the circumstances, the enormity of pain and suffering can be immense. In the aftermath of such a senseless loss, the last thing on your mind is meeting with an attorney.
However, if your family member was killed at the hands of a negligent individual or corporation, there will come a time when a wrongful death action must be taken. As a surviving immediate family member, you have every legal right to hold that person or company responsible—and the Maine personal injury lawyers at Hardy, Wolf & Downing can help you pursue that legal right to the fullest application of the law. We will offer you and your loved ones compassionate and patient counsel while understanding that, even after achieving the successful outcome you deserve in a wrongful death lawsuit, the civil justice system offers only one small part of the healing process.
