The loss of a loved one is traumatic, even if the loss was expected. When it happens unexpectedly and as the result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, the loss can be truly devastating to the decedent’s family members and loved ones. While legal action cannot bring your loved one back, a successful unjustified dying claim can give you the financial resources you need to move forward, and perhaps give you some sense that justice has been done. This is why it is essential to speak with an experienced Lake County wrongful death attorney as soon as possible, as the law places a limit on the timeframe for filing wrongful death claims. So if you do not act soon, you could lose your opportunity to seek out compensation for your losses and damages via a settlement or jury verdict.
I am Julie R. Glade, a Lake County personal injury and wrongful death attorney with years of experience handling sensitive issues and assisting clients as they deal with traumatic losses like the unjustified death of a family member. My clients come to me from Gary, Crown Point, Hobart, Chesterton, Valparaiso and all the surrounding areas. My clients are often in shock over the sudden death of their loved one. My firm offers a place where people can learn about their legal options and start to come to terms with what happened. I work with clients who’ve lost a loved one in a range of circumstances, including motor vehicle accidents, construction accident victims and even premises liability cases that result in a fatal injury.
Compassionate Counsel, Aggressive Representation
As a Lake County wrongful death lawyer (also known as an unjustified death attorney), I emphasize responsiveness and accessibility. That means I make myself available to answer my clients’ questions and address concerns as they come up, and I do so promptly. I understand that you should not have to wait for answers when your life has been affected so dramatically.
When I handle your case, I will thoroughly investigate the situation that led to your loved one’s death, particularly cases that appear to be sudden, unnatural and unjustified. Dying is a natural part of life, but in many cases, it is possible to recoup damages from the individual who holds liability for the wrongful death. My approach is aggressive and diligent, and I strategize to obtain favorable settlements without the need to go to court. However, we prepare every case as though it will go to trial. My litigation team handles fatal accident cases stemming from events such as:
- Car accidents;
- Medical malpractice;
- Nursing home negligence;
- Truck accidents;
- Motorcycle accidents;
- Boating, ATV and and other motor vehicle accidents.
A successful wrongful death lawsuit (also called an unjustified death lawsuit) can provide you and your family with compensation for a range of losses and damages, including medical, hospital, funeral and burial expenses; loss of earnings (financial support); loss of love and companionship; loss of services; reimbursement for uninsured debts; costs of mental health counseling stemming from the trauma and loss of the relationship and costs of administration of the person’s estate and legal fees. When you visit my office, I will sit down and thoroughly discuss the details of your situation with you, assess the situation, help you understand the next steps that should be taken and guide you through the matter until it is resolved, either through a settlement or other measures.
