A wrongful death claim filed in Clarksburg, West Virginia, may seek compensation for the decedent’s beneficiaries. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, a wrongful death attorney may fight to get you reimbursed for one or more of the following:
- property damage – if property was damaged, such as in an accident where a vehicle was destroyed, you may seek reimbursement;
- medical expenses – if a decedent was in the hospital or treated by a physician and ultimately died as a result, you may be compensated;
