Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are handled on a contingency basis, with a “no recovery, no fee” promise in every case.  We are paid only when you are paid.

Unfortunately, particularly in tractor-trailer accidents and motorcycle accidents, grieving relatives are left with the aftermath of the death of the party in an accident.  Tennessee recognizes a special action brought on behalf of the deceased individual and survivors, referred to as a Wrongful Death Action.  This area of the law, like all others, involves the intersection of liability law, insurance law, dealing with health insurance claims, subrogation, and frequently uninsured motorist coverage.  However, the wrongful death of a loved one brings to bear the need to establish a monetary value lost as a result of the loss, in addition to compensation for the suffering experienced.  Persons who suffered a wrongful death are naturally overwhelmed with the emotion of the terrible personal loss they have suffered.  They do not address that which is necessary to demonstrate the money loss they have suffered.  That is our job.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that the Defendant, in many cases has lawyers, actuaries, and investigators working on their behalf as soon as an accident occurs.  While the loved ones of the deceased are dealing with a tremendous loss, the death of a loved one, professionals are working on behalf of the driver who caused the damages.

No one can bring back your loved one.  Count on Olson & Olson, PLC to work for you to recover the money you need and should receive.

Limited Time: Olson & Olson, PLC wants to remind you that in Tennessee there is very limited time within which you can present a claim for personal injury.  This law is referred to as the Statute of Limitations.  We have been presented with many cases, which were just a few days too late for injured persons to recover money they were entitled to receive, simply because they waited too long.  Olson & Olson, PLC does not give advice regarding any Statute of Limitations until we have met with the individual, and understand the facts of each case.  Please do not wait too long.  Call us today.
