The death of a loved one is the most tragic and heartbreaking experience you ever have to go through. The knowledge that your loved one passed before their time only makes the grief that much more poignant. But if the death of your loved one was the result of carelessness, negligence, or the malpractice of someone else, you require closure and deserve justice with the help of our La Crosse wrongful death lawyers.
The law office of Bye, Goff & Rohde understands that pain. We have been serving the people of Wisconsin and Minnesota for over 50 years, and we are here to help.
Time Is Precious
As you mourn your loved one’s passing, you may often reflect on just how precious time is and how fleeting it can be. And while you may not feel at all ready to confront a possibly complex legal struggle, there are strict legal time limits on when you must file a wrongful death suit. Our La Crosse attorneys are experienced in dealing with these matters and can relieve you of the worry and anxiety of handling your claim, freeing you to focus on caring for your family.
Funerals Are Expensive
The cost of funerals seems to continue rising steadily year after year. You may also have doctor and hospital bills from your loved one’s last days. Additionally, your family has lost the income your loved one provided. While money may be the last thing on your mind right now, the bills still come. You need to act to protect your family from the risk of financial ruin. Our attorneys are prepared to represent your interests and protect your family from a financial loss at this time.
Wisconsin and Minnesota divides types of damages for personal injury claims into two groups: economic and general. Regarding wrongful death cases, economic damages may include lost earning potential, whereas general damages refer to more intangible elements like pain and suffering. The experienced team at Bye, Goff & Rohde can determine how to best present your case for the compensation you need.
