Helping rebuild lives affected by wrongful death
February 27, 2015
When a loved one dies unexpectedly, the emotional and psychological toll can be devastating. Grief can be more overwhelming if the person’s passing was a result of another party’s negligence, intention to harm, or inaction.
Pursuing legal action against the responsible party might not be on a family’s list of priorities when faced with an untimely loss. However, the survivors will have to confront financial difficulties or questions caused by their loved one’s passing. Although filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party will not bring a loved one back, bringing the perpetrator to justice will provide some measure of comfort, and may entitle survivors to monetary damages that can go a long way in helping them rebuild their lives.
Attorney Ann S. Sheeley has spent most of her professional life providing compassionate and caring counsel and support to her clients, utilizing her skills and more than two decades of experience in personal injury law to help her clients obtain closure and compensation.
She guides her clients through every step of the process of filing a wrongful death suit, from investigating the accident and establishing a cause of death, and provides legal representation at settlement negotiations or at trials. Her firm also works on a contingency basis, meaning clients do not have to pay fees to legal representation if compensation was not obtained.
