Wrongful Death Attorneys in Portland
Losing someone that you love is never an easy situation and losing them due to the irresponsibility or carelessness of another person is especially difficult. Processing the grief and the anger is a daily struggle. Trying to move through each day in one piece is just about the only thing that you can keep your mind on. Taking legal action against the at-fault party is probably the furthest thing from your mind, however, it is important to remember that you could be entitled to financial remuneration for your loss. While a settlement could never bring your loved one back, it could make putting the pieces back together significantly easier.
The loss of your loved one may have left you with significant medical bills, not to mention the loss of their income for your family. The person responsible for taking all of that from you should be brought to justice and held morally and financially responsible. At Shlesinger & deVillenueve, we keep your best interests in mind and are committed to helping you through this traumatic time; we will make sure you receive the respect and compensation you deserve!
