Manchester Wrongful Death Lawyer
Wrongful death claims are used to pursue financial compensation from the party responsible for the victim’s death. The victim’s estate can recover for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. A surviving spouse, parent, or child can recover for their loss of companionship and family ties, up to a certain dollar amount set by statute. Wrongful death claims apply to negligent and intentional misconduct.

Contact us now to learn more.We Act Immediately to Preserve Evidence of Liability Much of the evidence needed to support a wrongful death case can be lost in the days and weeks after an accident. Witnesses must be located and interviewed. Physical evidence must be collected and preserved. Police reports, hospital records, employment files, maintenance logs - any one of these items could later prove to be the key to a substantial damage award.
Kenison Law Office goes to work building a wrongful death claim beginning on day one. The families we represent take comfort knowing that, while they grieve the loss of their loved one, we are busy doing everything necessary to preserve their right to compensation.A Hands-On Approach at the Scene of the Accident
Mr. Kenison personally visits the scene in every wrongful death case looking for items others missed. This kind of direct involvement can make a big impact. For example, to the untrained eye, a caution sign near the scene of a worksite accident may not seem like a big deal. But to an experienced construction accidents lawyer like Mr. Kenison, that piece of evidence would prove invaluable for the purpose of establishing liability.Communication With the Insurance Company
We choose to make contact with the insurance adjuster for the other party soon after we are retained in a wrongful death case. By opening the claim early on, we establish a line of communication that allows us to educate the adjuster about the claim as it develops. This foundation of trust benefits our clients in the end. They receive a settlement that accurately reflects the harm suffered, and they receive it without delay.
The families we represent take comfort knowing that, while they grieve the loss of their loved one, we are busy doing everything necessary to preserve their right to compensation.Expert Witnesses
An attorney handling a wrongful death claim should have experience with the type of negligent conduct that occurred in the case. A truck accidents lawyer, for example, would be well-suited to handle a claim stemming from a fatal collision with a tractor trailer. The same principle holds true for expert witnesses. At Kenison Law Office, our wrongful death attorneys maintain a network of specialists who can advise on the technical and economic issues that appear in these cases, such as:
- Accident reconstruction
- Mechanical failures
- Safety regulations, protocols, and best practices
- Professional standards of care
- Medical expenses and lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
Selecting the right expert witness is important because catastrophic accidents can be highly complex. We spent years building relationships to ensure the right industry expert is available to our firm when the need arises.Fostering Client Relationships
Mr. Kenison is actively involved in wrongful death cases at every step. He interacts with clients on a personal level, attends wakes and funerals, and genuinely gets to know who the victim was as a human being.
Not only is this investment of time the right thing to do, but it allows Mr. Kenison to be particularly effective later, when he makes a demand for damages. He can draw on his personal familiarity with the victim’s life in order to paint a picture of the true extent of the harm done.Learn How Our Wrongful Death Lawyers Can Make a Difference in Your Case
