Wrongful Death Attorneys

Proudly Serving Southaven and Hernando

When a loved one dies unexpectedly while in the care of someone else, because of a drunk or negligent driver, or after using a dangerous drug or defective product, family members generally want to know what happened and why. While our civil justice system can deliver these answers, it's not easy to navigate it alone. Without a lawyer's help, you may not take the right steps in the correct amount of time to receive the answers you need or the compensation you deserve.

At the law firm of Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman PLLC in Southaven, our lawyers represent families who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents. We realize that no amount of money will replace your family member, but we believe it is important to help you get compensated nonetheless.

We can help you and your family through this challenging time. Contact our Southaven wrongful death attorneys today at (662) 222-0597.

What Is A Wrongful Death Suit?

When a death is caused by the careless or reckless actions of another person, it is considered "wrongful." Even if the actions were not criminally negligent, the wrongdoer may be subject to a civil court proceeding called a wrongful death action. While a criminal court proceeding is about punishing the wrongdoer, a wrongful death action is about compensating the survivors of the deceased person.

Family members can seek compensation for losses such as:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost financial support
  • Lost services provided by the family member
  • Loss of consortium or companionship for a spouse
  • Loss of parental guidance for a child
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
