Fayetteville Fatal Accident Lawyer
Nothing can express the grief and trauma of losing a loved one before his or her time. However, when the death was the result of a preventable accident, it can be even more difficult for family members. While nothing will replace what you have lost, if your loved one was killed due to the negligent actions of another party, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Helping Family Members Bring Wrongful Death Claims
After the death of a loved one, the last thing on your mind may be a legal action. When you work with Gramling Estes Law Firm, we will take over that burden for you.

If you have lost a loved one in Arkansas, there are two different types of claims you can bring:
- Spouses, children or parents can bring a claim on behalf of themselves: This will account for loss of consortium, pain and suffering of the survivors, and the loss of future income.
- The estate of the deceased can bring a claim: This claim is filed on behalf of the deceased and can account for a range of factors, including the pain and suffering of the deceased before death. The estate must approve the settlement.
It can be difficult to bring a wrongful death claim. Many families just want to move on and not prolong the grief. However, filing these legal actions can be an important part of the healing process. It also sends a strong signal that negligent and/or reckless behavior should not be tolerated.
