Helping families after the loss of a loved one
When a person dies due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, surviving family members are emotionally devastated. They may face significant financial losses as well. The wrongful death attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC offer compassionate guidance through this terrible time. We help family members seek compensation for the death of their loved one to help them meet the challenges of their loss.
A wrongful death lawsuit in West Virginia is similar in many ways to a personal injury claim. If a victim could have brought a personal injury lawsuit if his or her injury had not resulted in death, the victim's estate has the right to bring a wrongful death claim. For many families, taking legal action can lead to a sense of closure about what happened to their loved one.
