Helping Families Avoid the Financial Burden of Sudden Loss of a Loved One
Losing a family member is a tragic event, no matter the circumstances. If your loved one’s death was caused by someone else, the pain and anguish can seem unbearable. At Whiteman & Burdette, we are compassionate attorneys who are committed to ensuring that each of our clients are able to secure the appropriate financial compensation to ease a small part of the burden caused by the reckless or negligent act that took your loved one from you. While no amount of money can bring your loved one back to you or ease your suffering, we work to ensure that you and your family do not face the additional burdens caused by the financial devastation that accompany a sudden, wrongful death.
Our Compassionate Attorneys Handle Everything for Your Wrongful Death Claim
A wrongful death occurs when a person, company, or municipality commits a careless, violent, negligent, or reckless act resulting in a person’s death. No family should be responsible for the costs that come from a death that is the result of another person’s wrongful actions. We sincerely understand the difficulties that you are facing at this time. However, please understand that your future, and that of your entire family, depends on you contacting our office as soon as possible to provide us with the information that we need to begin working on your wrongful death claim. Statutes of limitations apply, and as time passes, crucial information can become lost or less useful. Our caring attorneys make the process as easy as possible, and handle everything for you. We will pursue financial justice for you while you work through the grieving process.

Our Fairmont wrongful death attorneys have experience building airtight cases and we possess the skills required to argue your case in court, if needed.
