Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one is a devastating tragedy. The lives of the family and friends who are left behind are never the same. It’s even more tragic when it didn’t have to happen. Every year, thousands of families are forced to deal with the reality that their loved one’s life was cut short prematurely. If your loved one has been robbed of a future due to another’s negligence, you deserve justice. No one can undo what happened, but the law offices of James W. Sutton III can help innocent people put their lives back together.

Have you or someone you know felt the pain inflicted by a wrongful death? Common causes include:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect

It’s not about money, it’s about doing what’s right. It’s about fulfilling your duty to preserve your loved one’s memory and legacy. When a person is the victim of a wrongful death, the tragic end of their life is only the beginning. A lifetime’s worth of lazy Sundays, summer vacations, sunsets on the beach, and so many more joyful memories have been stolen away, never to be experienced. Don’t you deserve restitution?

Accidents happen, but a wrongful death is no accident. Why should your family bear the emotional and financial burden alone? Reckless and negligent people deserve to be held accountable for their actions. Sometimes the criminal justice system fails the victims of these people. That’s where the offices of James W. Sutton, III come in. But it’s not about punishment. It’s about making the person or people who are at fault bear their fair share of the burden.

When faced with the unexpected shock of a loved one’s untimely end, it’s hard enough just making it through everyday life. Financial difficulties can compound an already unthinkable situation. Families must choose to either pay the bills that continue to pile up day after day or put food on the table. Sometimes they can’t afford either one. What happens next?

In an instant, lives are changed forever. One day the pain will fade and the grieving will end. But the destructive impact of a wrongful death lingers for a lifetime. It might be an empty seat at a college graduation. Or maybe it means an already overwhelmed working mother must postpone retirement so she can keep a roof over the heads of her children. The ripple effect goes even further, as children grow up their lives and worldview are fundamentally altered by a mother or father shaped void in their upbringing. Mom isn’t there to see her daughter walk down the aisle. Dad will never meet his grandchildren. Shouldn’t their tragic, preventable deaths leave a legacy other than tears?

Ultimately, that’s what a wrongful death claim is all about. Leaving a legacy. The negligent, reckless actions of another person snatched away your loved one’s ability to build their own legacy. That’s why we need to do it for them. We know they’d do the same for us.
