Wrongful death is a term that describes the situation when someone’s negligence has caused an individual’s death. Sometimes the negligence causes an injury that only later leads to death, but the untimely demise of your loved one is still the result of the negligent party’s actions.

Aside from your personal loss and the resulting pain and suffering, there may be the concern of lost income, medical bills, and funeral bills. When you have lost a loved one unexpectedly, we know you have entered a dark and trying time. Consequently, a wrongful death lawyer should maintain the highest standards of both professionalism and sensitivity.

At the Law Offices of Adam S. Kutner, we handle these special cases delicately and with the discretion and individual attention warranted by the situation.

Building Your Case for Compensation

When you work with our Las Vegas wrongful death attorneys, we have a specialized process in place for successfully building your case for compensation. We take calculated steps to use the legal discovery system to your advantage to build strong evidence to show the other side why you deserve the compensation you are asking for. First, your attorney works with you to gather all the facts surrounding the death of your loved one, including the initial police report and/or coroner’s report. If possible, they may also investigate the actual scene of the accident. Next, we utilize our extensive network of specialists, including homicide reconstruction experts, medical specialists, vocational experts, and forensic specialists to help us use the facts of your crash to prove what is asserted in your claim.

Throughout your case, we file essential legal documents, including the initial death report, a summons, and motions if necessary. Our Las Vegas wrongful death lawyers also work to diligently and accurately value your claim. Valuing your case is a crucial part of getting the full amount of compensation you are owed, so we make sure to include all categories of damages possible, including both economic and non-economic damages like emotional distress and loss of consortium. While we are building your case, we also participate in negotiations with the other side in hopes of getting you a settlement before having to go through a painful and emotional trial. However, we are willing to take your case to trial if the other party doesn’t agree to compensate you fairly for your losses. It’s important not to delay in contacting an experienced wrongful death attorney to begin working on your case immediately.

While every person who files a wrongful death case would rather have their loved one back, they also understand that they have financial obligations that must now be met alone.

  • Funeral and burial expenses. In some cases administration costs of the Will.
  • Loss of income that the person provided to the family.
  • Loss of benefits that the deceased provided such as health and life insurance premiums and contributions to retirement savings.
  • Loss of companionship and support.
  • Pain and suffering endured by the deceased from the event that led to their death.

It is important for remaining family members to remember that wrongful death suits have a Statute of Limitations attached to them. Qualifying family members have two years from the date of death to file a claim for compensation. Calculating a wrongful death settlement can be a tough process, cases should be filed quickly to ensure that information and evidence remain intact.

Adam Kutner Reviews & Testimonials

“While my first accident was actually in twenty ten, it was march of twenty ten and I sought Adam Kutners office because of his commercials and I just chose to – there was several commercials actually out in tv land, but I opted to go with Adam Kutner because he seemed very sincere and upon my arrival to his office I was met with professionalism by his staff. I was very happy, in fact I was quite surprised at the amount of the settlement and the return time from the time of the accident was several months and to me that was a very short time. After the accident Mr. Kutners office was able to supply me with a physician and also a rental vehicle. For my approach it’s been very professional, everyone is very pleasant, anytime that I’ve placed a phone call or an email I get a quick turnaround time and I have been very, very satisfied. I would just say that overall the professionalism, quality of service for the customer in Adam Kutners office is far none top notch and I would refer Adam Kutner to all my friends and family in the future.”
