Umatilla Wrongful Death Lawyers

Everyone knows losing a loved one is one of the most challenging experiences any of us will ever endure. Everyone also knows that losing loved ones is an unshakable part of being alive, that people we know and love will die and that there is nothing we can do about it. What we do expect is that this death will not happen suddenly. Most of us expect that we will have time to prepare and say goodbye, and usually this is the case. But not always.

If you have recently lost someone in an unexpected and preventable manner then we would first like to offer you our deepest sympathies. What you are experiencing is unfathomable and shocking and to pretend otherwise is only to hide the pain under banalities. In legal circles, what has happened is known as “wrongful death,” which means that the person you love who was taken from you should still be alive. Further, this means that someone is responsible. Almost all wrongful death cases are the result of the poor decisions and/or lack of foresight from another party. Some common instances where the wrongful death label can be applied include:

Recovering from such a loss requires time and space to mourn, to gather together with friends and family, and to process what has happened. Unfortunately, it easily transpires that we are prevented from the necessary work of grief by the myriad bills and financial demands that emerge as a direct result of the circumstances. Families coping with a wrongful death frequently experience financial stresses such as bills pertaining to hospital stays, property damage costs, funeral expenses, and even wage loss. These monetary issues can often exacerbate the healing process, making it all but impossible.

For this reason, the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. have been fighting for the families of wrongful death victims for over forty years. With a deep understanding of how difficult it can be to both heal and juggle the strenuous money issues, Mr. Cunningham stands beside grieving families and is proud to act as their legal representative, working to ensure that they receive the compensation they need to focus on the important matters without worrying about how to pay the bills.
