Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents
A traffic collision is rarely a pure accident. Most crashes occur because one party was careless, distracted, reckless or perhaps intoxicated. When such a motor vehicle accident results in fatal injuries, the surviving family members are left to cope with not only their grief and anger, but financial hardships, legal issues and the daily reminders of the person’s absence.
At the King Law Firm, we strive to take on as much of the burden as we can. While you attend to family matters and the grieving process, we can begin the investigation and deal with the insurance companies. Although legal action may be the last thing on your mind at this difficult time, our early involvement can make a big difference in ultimately holding the negligent party to justice and maximizing the compensation to survivors.

CLOSE, CAPABLE AND COMPASSIONATE REPRESENTATION
Our initial focus is on the facts of the accident and establishing negligence. As time goes on, we work closely with the family members to understand the tangible losses so that we can relate them in a claim for damages. Survivors and the deceased’s estate are entitled to compensation for the person’s lost income and household contributions, for medical bills and funeral expenses, and for loss of consortium, counsel, love and support.
We are sensitive to your grief while vigorously holding the negligent parties and insurance companies accountable. Our trial lawyers are prepared to take any case to a jury if necessary to secure full and fair recovery of compensation.
There is no cost or obligation for a free consultation, and we handle wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis; no attorney fees unless we obtain a settlement or verdict. Call toll free at 352-629-8747, or email us.
