Wrongful Death

wrongful_death"The dead cannot cry out for justice, it is the duty of the living to do so for them"
-Lois McMaster Bujold-

There is no greater tragedy than the loss of a loved one. It is the most devastating and emotionally traumatic event in anyone's life. When that death comes suddenly and unexpectedly at the hands of a negligent company or driver, the pain and sense of loss is compounded.

In the midst of your grief, the negligent company, driver and their insurance company are already working against you, trying to minimize their losses and save themselves money. They are using the time you grieve to get a head start, to gather evidence and make your path to recovery harder and harder with each passing day. It's just business to them. Your loved one has become a claim, a number, a liability.

We at the Law Offices of Charles D. Shackelford take wrongful death personally, and we find justice for those who can not do so for themselves. Cases involving the death of someone effects so many, hurts so many, destroys so many.

We have represented people and families killed by drunk drivers, negligent 18-wheelers and other careless people and companies for over 27 years, recovering millions for our clients and their deserving families. We cannot bring your love-one back, but we will certainly pursue the negligent party that needlessly caused your loss and extract from them and their insurance company every penny that is owed to you.

That is what you deserve. That is what they deserve. That is our duty. Call us now and let us help pick up the pieces for you and your family.
