Wrongful Death of a Child
The loss of your child is a devastating experience that no parent should have to go through. Your child’s laughter, smiles, individuality, and unique personality all brought love and warmth into your home. Throughout your child’s life, you have loved, nurtured, protected, and guided your child. You have dreamed limitlessly of their potential and planned for their future.
Our attorneys cannot begin to comprehend the amount of grief you and your family are experiencing at this time. However, we entirely believe it is of the utmost importance that the party that caused your child’s death be held completely responsible. The Law Offices of Michael Cordova will assist you and your family through this devastating and traumatic time by preparing the strongest possible case against the negligent party.
Presenting Your Loss
After suffering the loss of your child, it is important that you save all items of sentimental value related to your child. These items include:
- Family photos
- Family videos
- Favorite possession (toy, blanket, instrument, etc.)
- Baptismal certificates
- Birthday cards
These are the types of items that our lawyers use to help demonstrate to the insurance company and, if necessary, the jury, the tremendous loss that your family has suffered.
Wrongful death cases have different factors when the death of a loved one is a child instead of an adult. When the court determines compensation, age and life expectancy are vitally important. It can be easier to determine future earnings for an adult, who has had consistent employment, over a high school student or preschooler. Realistically, a jury will never be able to measure your child’s worth; however, our dedicated lawyers will try to help you obtain compensation for your loss.
If you have experienced the death of your child due to another person’s negligence, please contact the Law Offices of Michael Cordova, and let our experienced lawyers help you obtain the your entitled compensation. You can reach the Law Offices of Michael Cordova at (602) 265-6700.
