Milwaukee Wrongful Death Attorney
Counsel from a Lawyer Who is Certified in Civil Law
One of the most difficult things to experience is the sudden and untimely death of a loved one - especially if that death was caused by another person's recklessness, negligence or inattentive behavior. Most families are left grieving and faced with unexpected expenses. After a death, family members can turn to an understanding and experienced legal professional who can help them obtain the compensation that they deserve.
At the Law Office of Randall E. Reinhardt, I have assisted clients with obtaining damages after the sudden death of a family member and I may be able to help you as well. I have won millions of dollars for clients in wrongful death cases, including:
- $1,500,000 recovery for failure to diagnose aortic dissection, which resulted in wrongful death.
- $2,000,000 recovery for the death of a six-year old pedestrian.
- $300,000 recovery in an accident case which is the underinsured motorist policy limit for wrongful death.
Trust an attorney who has been recognized by the legal community and will do everything it takes to help you get the compensation you deserve.
How to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Wisconsin
According to Wisconsin law, immediate family members, including children, spouses and parents of the deceased, can file a wrongful death lawsuit. The statute of limitations requires that the lawsuit be filed within two years from the date of death; in some cases, you may only have 180 days to file. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can help you hold the negligent party responsible for their actions and ensure that justice is served.
Wrongful death lawsuits can also provide you with compensation to cover funeral costs, medical expenses, and provide you with financial assistance for your loss. If the loved one who passed was the sole income earner of a household, a wrongful death lawsuit can help ensure that you and your family will be taken care of by obtaining compensation for lost future income.
