Losing a loved one can shake your entire world.  When you lose a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, however, you may feel even more grief and dismay in an already difficult time. During this time, filing a wrongful death case can seem difficult or be the last thing on your mind.

But finding the right legal team for you is important, which is why it is helpful to read reviews for wrongful death lawyers in Michigan.

Our Michigan wrongful death lawyers represent families of loved ones who died due to the negligence of another. Common wrongful death cases include auto accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, and others.

Why it is Important to Find an Attorney After a Wrongful Death

To prove a wrongful death case, a claimant must have enough evidence that a particular party was behaving in a negligent, careless, or reckless manner, and that this action or inaction caused a death.

For this reason, it is important to understand the legal definition of negligence and work closely with a skilled and experienced lawyer. Depending on the circumstances, you and your attorney may be able to collect evidence immediately after a wrongful death occurs through medical records and police reports. Prompt record-keeping can help a claim down the road as time passes on.

With experienced legal aid on your side, you can have help to bolster your claim and request full and fair compensation. Doing so can also help you ensure all proper documentation is filed within the statute of limitations.

Finding the Right Legal Team

It is important to choose a law firm that has the skill and experience to win your case.  In addition, there are many emotions involved in wrongful death lawsuits, so you must feel comfortable with the attorney handling your case. This is where reading reviews for wrongful death lawyers in Michigan can help.

By hearing the way a law firm has helped others, you can feel assured that will provide the same level of compassion and respect to your case.

Attorney Larry Buckfire was relentless, tenacious, and methodical in the way he handled my mother’s wrongful death nursing home case. He researches all details involved and leaves no rock unturned. He is a very professional, knowledgeable and a caring attorney. Larry won us a judgment of $5 million. Larry kept us in the loop every step of the way. I could not be more pleased with the results. They exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Larry, for all of your hard work

Your professional and caring representation of our son and family in the wrongful death civil lawsuit has been exceptional.

We could not have asked for a more thoughtful and attentive attorney — who kept us informed and shared past experiences from simlar cases that helped us to understand and guide our expectations during this tragic and painful process.

Considering the facts, the judgment in the case was very rewarding.

We are very pleased with your service and will highly recommend you and (Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C.) to family and friends.

Very truly,

The Lexava and Jerome Smith family
