When a loved one dies the loss is overwhelming. There is a sudden emptiness in your life – a hole forms in your heart that aches. Time slows. Minutes seems like hours. Days seem like weeks.
When your loved one dies because of someone else’s fault, all of that same suffering happens. But additionally there is all of the responsibility to determine how this tragedy happened and who should be held accountable. This is when Guenin Law can help.
Investigating the cause of a loved one’s death is a serious undertaking. It requires people who are experienced and hard working. People who understand the proof the law requires, and how to find that proof in…
· witness statements,
· crash reconstructions,
· engineering reports,
· electronic data recorders (a car’s “black box”),
· medical records,
· police records,
· laws of science, and
· experts from around the country.
At Guenin Law, we have handled wrongful death cases that have involved experts from Colorado, California, Virginia, Kentucky, Florida, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Illinois, and Texas, as well as throughout Indiana. Sometimes the best expert is located thousands of miles from where your loved one was killed. We know how to get that expert in touch with the evidence.
Once the investigation is complete, we don’t stop. We bring the evidence together. We present the evidence to the insurance company for the person or corporation at fault. We show them with evidence why its insured should be held accountable for the death.
We tell them the story of your loved one. What their life meant to their family, to their friends, to their neighbors, and to their community. Why money should be paid to compensate for the harms and losses suffered.
This is not easy. Insurance companies often look for excuses not to pay for the damages, not to pay for the losses. People do not always step up and do what is right. Insurance companies will sometimes say that no amount of money can bring the loved one back from the dead, so the insurance company claims they should not have to pay a dime in compensation, or only a few dollars. This is wrong. The law sets all of the different damages that should be paid when a loved one is killed. An insurance company must be held accountable to its insured, the person, or corporation that causes your loved one’s death. That is their job.
It is our job to make sure the insurance company does its job. That is what we do.
Our knowledge of every legal element of damage payable for the loss of your loved one and our experience in finding the best way to tell your loved one’s story to a Judge or Jury or to an insurance claims adjuster helps to maximize the recovery for your loss whether at mediation or at trial.
When you are pulled into dark places by the death of your loved one, you need someone that will help – someone who knows how to find your way out of the darkness, someone who will hold those responsible, accountable for their actions. You need Guenin Law.
