Wrongful Death Lawyers: Protecting Your Rights

Wrongful death occurs when a person’s death is caused by the negligence or reckless misconduct of another person or company, including motorists, medical professionals and companies that manufacture and sell dangerous products. At Gemma Law Associates, Inc., we represent clients in wrongful death lawsuits that require:

 

Because of the extreme loss involved in a wrongful death case, Rhode Island families may be able to file for several different types of compensation, including:

Lost Income After a Wrongful Death

An expert witness is typically called upon to calculate this amount by estimating the victim’s income over the remainder of his or her lifetime.

Medical Expenses Associated with a Wrongful Death

Any hospital or other medical expenses incurred during the time between the victim’s injury and death.

Decedent’s Pain and Suffering Due to a Wrongful Death

Financial compensation for the pain and suffering experienced by the victim as a result of the injuries prior to death.

Loss of Consortium Following a Wrongful Death

This represents the emotional cost to the spouse, children or parents left behind by the victim’s death.

Wrongful death cases require experienced and skilled legal assistance. Insurance lawyers for the defendant may contend the victim shared blame for his or her injuries, which can reduce damages. They will try to minimize their payout by offering low settlement amounts. Our skilled, aggressive and dedicated legal team won’t allow that to happen.

After spending 8 hours in a hospital overnight to get stitches in my lip because of a drunk driver’s negligent decision to get behind the wheel, the last thing I wanted to do was think about it all. I sent an email to Gemma Law, and Mark Gemma quickly called me back with an empathetic approach to listening to my story and helping me figure out the next steps. When he told me I wouldn’t have to have any contact with the insurance companies, I was HOOKED! When he pointed out how unfortunate it was I might have to miss out on a lip modeling career from a potential scar from the stitches, I was SOLD! And when I finally received my settlement check after letting him do all the leg work while I just focused on recovering, I was and am eternally GRATEFUL! Mark Gemma helped me turn a near death experience into a new start in life and I highly recommend him to anybody needing a personal injury lawyer.
