Fighting to obtain compensation for families in Biloxi

When someone you love dies because of the negligence of another person or party, you have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

And our dedicated and professional wrongful death lawyers in Gulfport can assist you in obtaining just compensation to ease the pain and grief your family is experiencing.

The types of compensation you may be eligible to receive

Losing a loved one can cause more than emotional distress — it can also cause financial hardship. Our injury lawyers can help you seek reimbursement for the following damages:

  • Funeral costs: As a surviving family member, you want to ensure that your loved one is properly put to rest. A wrongful death claim can cover the cost of burying your loved one.
  • Loss of wages: In some wrongful death cases, the deceased was the primary financial provider for the family. If your loved one was your family's main source of income, a successful lawsuit can help you get reimbursement for his or her anticipated earnings. In addition, with our help, you may be able to recover damages for a loss of inheritance.
  • Pain and suffering: The death of a family member can cause mental anguish for everyone in your household. If you are experiencing pain and suffering because of a loss of love, solace or companionship, you may be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering.

Statute of limitations for a wrongful death action in Mississippi
