Helping Families of the Victims of Devastating Accidents
No case is more tragic or more justly warrants compensation than those involving the untimely death of a loved one. If your family member lost his/her life because of another party's recklessness, you can count on Clarke Law Firm to do everything possible to fight for the justice and closure you need. We strive to provide personalized, dedicated, and compassionate legal services.
Damages You Could be Entitled to
While a wrongful death case cannot undo the accident that caused your loved one's death, it can help you with economic damages such as funeral costs, costs of medical bills, and the loss of your loved one's income and services. It can also provide you with noneconomic damages for mental anguish and loss of love and affection. If the court sees fit, you could additionally be awarded punitive damages to punish the responsible party (if it is determined the accident was caused by intentional malice).
Examples of common wrongful death cases include:
- Defective drugs or products
- Medical malpractice
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workplace accidents
Wrongful Death Lawsuit Restrictions
You can file a wrongful death lawsuit in Tennessee if you were the deceased's spouse or the executor or administrator of his or her estate. If the deceased was single at the time of his/her death, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit if you were his or her child, parent, executor, or administrator. If no spouse, child, or parent is left behind, a sibling can file suit. You should file the lawsuit within one year of the date of the injury that resulted in your loved one's death.
