Oregon Wrongful Death Attorney
When someone you love dies because of negligence or recklessness of another, you feel more than grief. You feel victimized and wronged. It’s an unfair burden to stack onto your sorrow. Friends or family may try to dissuade you from pursuing justice and compensation for your loss; they might even placate you by saying, “It won’t bring her back.” I agree, it won’t. However, seeking justice and compensation for a wrongful death is important, not only for you but for everyone. Wrongs that are not righted tend to repeat. Wrongful death is aptly named. It means somebody did something wrong. Pursuit of justice is a move toward what is right.
Compensation for you and protection for society
My name is Richard Rizk. I have handled many wrongful death cases. Each one is important. It compensates the survivors of the decedent for their expenses, including medical bills, funeral costs, lost income, and in many cases even punitive damages. By holding the responsible party financially accountable, people and especially companies will go out of their way to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Dangerous conditions that exist are eliminated, products are improved, procedures are improved, and regulations are implemented, all because a wrongful death suit was filed and the responsible party was court-ordered to make amends. The safety we all enjoy as a society exists in large part because of our belief in accountability and justice. Your wrongful death lawsuit upholds this belief.
What should you do?
Different negligent acts have varying statutes of limitation or the amount of time you have to file against the responsible party after the incident. Calling me as soon as possible after the event is your best option. Waiting could mean important evidence could disappear. Also, if the responsible company is chronically negligent, you could find yourself at the end of a long line of lawsuits seeking redress for wrongs committed by them.
By contacting me early, we can lay out a plan that protects your rights and allows you to relax while I take care of the specifics of your case. My experience with wrongful death suits will make it easy on you and help you receive the compensation and closure you deserve.
