[00:00:02.640] If you've lost a family member to a accident, [00:00:08.800] whether it be on a construction site because of medical malpractice [00:00:11.640] or in a motor vehicle accident, [00:00:12.960] you really need to find an attorney right away. [00:00:15.680] You need to hire an attorney with experience [00:00:17.960] because there's a lot of procedures [00:00:19.480] and things that have to get done that you're in no position to do. [00:00:22.800] You have to let our experience do it for you. [00:00:25.120] To bring any wrongful death action, you need to have an estate set up, [00:00:29.880] you have to get through the circuits court process, [00:00:31.640] which is cumbersome, [00:00:32.880] and you really need someone who's been there and done that before [00:00:35.520] and knows how to do it. [00:00:37.000] It's important to have a lawyer on your side [00:00:38.720] because the people who cause [00:00:40.280] the death of your loved one are never going to treat you fairly. [00:00:43.480] They're never going to provide [00:00:44.400] the full compensation that you're entitled to, [00:00:46.880] and especially in the case of a family who's lost [00:00:50.240] the husband and father, the breadwinner, [00:00:52.600] you really need somebody [00:00:53.400] who's going to go out there and fight for you [00:00:55.280] and you're going to need someone who's going to hire the economists [00:00:57.960] to do the economic projections to prove [00:01:00.280] what you would have been entitled to had the person lived, [00:01:02.320] which you're entitled to the economic loss [00:01:04.680] that a person that would have provided had they lived, [00:01:07.600] as well as whatever pain and suffering they suffered [00:01:10.640] before their death. [00:01:11.680] We're especially qualified to handle wrongful death cases [00:01:14.160] because we've handled [00:01:16.560] every kind of case imaginable that could cause a death. [00:01:20.800] I've handled more car accidents, truck accident, [00:01:23.040] and motorcycle accident cases than I can remember. [00:01:25.920] I've handled more construction accident cases [00:01:27.920] than I can remember. [00:01:29.080] We have extensive experience [00:01:30.160] in medical malpractice, defective products, [00:01:32.680] so no matter what cause of death, [00:01:34.040] we have the experience and ability to prove the case. [00:01:38.680] People expect that a personal relationship... [00:01:41.760] If you just lost a family member, we understand. [00:01:44.720] We know how devastating and traumatizing it is, [00:01:47.680] and you don't want... [00:01:48.920] Not just someone who can handle the legal work, [00:01:51.080] but you also want a personal connection, [00:01:52.760] and we're there for you.
