Compensation in Wrongful Death Cases

A wrongful death action allows you and your family to recover compensation for the negligent or accidental death of a loved one due to an automobile accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident, or any other unexpected accident or injury. Even if your loved one died after the accident, but as a result of the injury, you may be entitled to significant compensation.

We will begin an immediate investigation to collect and preserve all necessary evidence for your case, including medical records, police statements, and witness statements. We can also consult with experts who can assess the full financial value of your losses.

You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of future income

  • BEYOND AMAZING...

    “Shaffer & Engle helped me through the most traumatic turning point in my life where I felt so alone and had no support except the fact that I needed to get through my disposition to ensure I would be able to continue to excel in my college studies and provide a better life for my young daughter who I am raising alone. They provided me with encouraging words and any possible leads they had come across. I was amazed at how caring my attorney was regarding matters outside of the actual case! After court, I was able to come home and continue to be a rock for my family. Since, I have recently ran out of funding 29 credits shy of my degree but still proud to finish the last semester with a 4.0 gpa making the Deans List five times still maintain work having also begun raising my orphaned seventeen year old god daughter who I came to know as one of the trouble kids at my local Boys & Girls Club where I was hired after completing the community service requirements in my case. I do not receive any financial help from government programs for my budding family but I begged for them to take money for their exceptional service and they refused. I am forever grateful for their kindness and love each time that I look at my girls. Like my title says BEYOND AMAZING...”

    “From the minute you call Jeff Engle's office, you are treated with first class respect and service. Jeff is very up front about his experience, results and belief in the success or possible issues with your case. From the time of retainment, Jeff's use of electronic forms of communication keep you up to date to the minute whenever there are developments and progress in your case. This type of communication is nearly unheard of in ANY profession. Many times, I knew that Jeff was taking his personal time to communicate with me. Jeff presents himself as a very knowledgeable and able attorney with sincere personal interest in the success of your case. During times of uncertainty, having someone of Jeff's demeanor at your side will simply make you feel that no matter what the outcome may be, he is right there with you. There was not one time during the course of my case that I felt Jeff was not thoughtful and prepared for. I cannot say enough for the level of professionalism this man presents while representing you as a client.”

    “I needed a criminal defense lawyer for a family member. So, having been represented by Shaffer & Engle previously, I contacted them. They took our case and provided great counsel, direction, and splendid representation throughout the legal process. The case was dismissed which was the best verdict that could be achieved. We are so thankful and blessed to have had such a wonderful attorney!”
