Holding The Responsible Party Accountable

A lawsuit doesn't solve everything. It won't bring your loved one back after a fatal accident or other wrongful death caused by someone else's carelessness or wrongdoing.

So why bring a lawsuit? At Steve German, our answer to that is simple. You file a wrongful death lawsuit because it is a way to hold a wrongdoer or negligent party accountable.

What Careless Or Wrongful Conduct Caused Your Relative's Death?

The notion of accountability is built right into Arizona law. The wrongful death statute speaks of aggravating and mitigating factors to be weighed in determining damages for the wrongful loss of a loved one.

For example, suppose you lost a close family member in a fatal car accident. If the other party was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is perfectly understandable for you to be outraged, and to want to express that outrage through a wrongful death lawsuit. Even if there are criminal charges involved, such as for vehicular homicide, that does not diminish the motivation to bring your own claim.

Clearly, the compensation you are seeking is important. Your losses are painfully real. But our lawyers understand that when the conduct that caused your loved one's death was wrongful, your lawsuit is about more than the money. It is about helping you achieve closure about what happened and making sure the party responsible for your loss feels the consequences.
