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
  • Loss of companionship
  • Other financial expenses resulting from the death of a loved one

  • Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion.

    “Jeff is is fourth attorney that I have worked with regarding custody of my son. My previous attorneys were neither knowledgeable of the law as it applied to my case nor followed through on the actions they said they would take. Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion. Given that my case involved an international relocation, allocation of sole custody for residency purposes...”

  • Elisabeth took our case and provided great counsel, direction, and splendid representation throughout the legal process.

    “I needed a criminal defense lawyer for a family member. So, having been represented by Shaffer & Engle previously, I contacted them. Elisabeth 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!”

    “I am a current client of Mr. Engle, handling both my divorce complaint and my child custody issues. Though the issues are complicated, Mr. Engle and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and responsive. I never have to wonder if he received my note/email, as he always responds in a timely manner. I absolutely recommend Jeffrey B. Engle for legal services needed. Thanks!”

  • BEYOND AMAZING...

    “Elisabeth 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. Elisabeth provided me with encouraging words and any possible leads she had come across. I was amazed at how caring she was regarding matters outside of the actual case! After court, Thanks to Elisabeth, 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 Elisabeth to take money for her exceptional service and she refused. I am forever grateful for her kindness and love each time that I look at my girls. She treated me like family and she didn't have to, she believed in me and encouraged me and stayed true to her word and I genuinely love and appreciate her for that beyond words. I trusted her with a long shot and she hit it out of the parking lot! Like my title says BEYOND AMAZING...”
