The loss of a loved one is a confusing and traumatic event that is only multiplied if the death was the result of another's negligent or improper conduct. While it may not seem like a priority while you're grieving, if your loved one's death was the result of another's negligence, you may have recourse to file a lawsuit for compensation.
Wrongful death cases can be difficult to navigate, not only because of the sensitivity of the crime, but also because establishing negligence and blame can be hard to accomplish. Our experienced attorney, Christopher W. Jeffress, can help your family through this difficult time. He has countless years of experience and will help to establish wrongful death and try to get you a settlement.

Establishing Wrongful Death
In order to file a wrongful death lawsuit, our attorney has to establish that your loved one's death was because of another's negligence. Negligence can be found against a person, a company, or a manufacturer.
Here are the things Mr. Jeffress will try to establish in your wrongful death case:
- The death was caused by the wrongful acts of another
- The wrongful acts of the other person were negligent
- The death has caused emotional and financial trauma on the victim's surviving family
- There is compensation available for the victim's wrongful death
If we can establish all of these things, our lawyer will work tirelessly to get you compensation for your loved one's loss of income, loss of benefits, loss of retirement funds, and the emotional pain and suffering you are struggling with.
Causes of Wrongful Death
Wrongful death cases can occur from a variety of unfortunate acts. Mr. Jeffress has had experience working on wrongful death cases caused by the following:
- Automobile accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective or recalled products
- Dangerous premises
- Ski/snowboard accidents
- Construction accidents
If you have a loved one that has been killed as a result of any of these common causes of wrongful death, you may be eligible to file a claim. Our team at Jeffress Law will review your case for free to determine if you should file a lawsuit so you can be compensated.
