Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Attorney

There is nothing more tragic and heartbreaking than losing a loved one in an accident.  Stracci Law Group understands and wants to help.  Wrongful death cases are different from "typical" personal injuries matters in a number of ways.

First, it is important to realize that in personal injury cases, the person who is injured is trying to recover money for him- or herself.  Obviously, in a wrongful death matter, that’s impossible.  Wrongful death cases are, instead, brought on behalf of the deceased party’s loved ones, typically through the estate of the deceased.

Second, there are two types of wrongful death actions in Indiana: adult and child wrongful death.  This is based on the premise that adults typically have people who depend on them for income and support, whereas children are often dependent on others.

Third, in some wrongful death cases, there is a limit on the amount of money you can recover.  This is particularly true of unmarried adults who die without dependents, where damages are specifically capped by statute at $300,000.00.

Finally, wrongful death actions are more frequently taken to trial than most personal injury matters, as the dollar amounts are often very high, and the damages are seen as speculative and difficult to quantify by insurance adjusters.

The point is this: wrongful death actions are not for inexperienced lawyers.  Choosing the right representation will have a substantial effect on the recovery.  We hope that you’ll consider Stracci Law Group if you have lost a loved one in an accident.  Please call (219) 525-1000 today to schedule your FREE, NO OBLIGATION consultation today.

Paul M., Criminal Case
“With being suspended from my job for allegedly costing them money through a workman compensation injury. Not only was Mr. Stracci very detailed and kept in touch constantly he prove that I was completely innocent and got the bogus case completely dismissed quickly. He personally contacted me throughout the entire case, not like other lawyers that you don't speak to at all besides in the courtroom. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone.”

Aaron, Criminal Case
“Hired Paul the day after I got out of Lake County for a DUI. I explained my situation and told him about priors. He was still confident even after I explained that this was a 3rd. I hired him and about a month later the charge was dropped! Wish I had a Paul Stracci to hire in my younger years.”
Michael, Criminal Case
