Alaska Wrongful Death Claims


A wrongful death  claim occurs when someone is responsible in an accident, that results in the death of another.  As long as the individual killed in the accident was not responsible in any way, it is "wrongful death", and could allow surviving family member to file a claim. 

At the Law Office of Gary L. Stapp we know that there is no way to replace your loved one.  No judgment in court, and no amount of money can make up for that loss.  You will always have the grief and sorrow of a missing family  member.  We understand that you are experiencing one of the most painful, heartbreaking issues and that there is no easy answer to it. 

We also know  that it is helpful for family members going through this process to have someone they can rely on to make sure they are represented.  At the Law Office of Gary Stapp we will counsel and guide you through this process, providing compassion and support for you while aggressively pursuing your claim. 

No, money cannot even begin to fill that void left by the death of your loved one.  Losing a loved one under  any circumstances can be devastating.  But when an innocent  person loses their life in an accident caused by someone else, these feelings of grief and loss can be overwhelming.  Wrongful death laws are in place to compensate family members left behind. You do deserve compensation for financial  and emotional damages that result from the untimely death of a loved one.  It can help you pay  for the funeral and burial; loss  of income; loss of companionship and consortium; grief counseling expenses and other helpful means of healing and moving  forward.  It is in your best interest to have an experienced attorney fight for your claim, so that you don't have to worry about it.  You will have the peace of mind that your case is being well handled, and you can focus on other aspects of recovery for your family.
