Drunk Driving/Wrongful Death

Alcohol-related crashes, injuries and fatalities  continue to remain a concern in Wisconsin. For example, in 2008 alcohol was a contributing factor in 234 traffic deaths. Attorney Stangl has well over twenty years’ experience in defending alcohol and drug related traffic offenses . This courtroom experience is an invaluable asset in civil law suits against drunk drivers where injuries and/or death(s) were caused by the drunk driver’s negligence.

A wrongful death action is a claim against a person, entity, or a company who can be held liable for an individual’s death. The elements which must be present to win a wrongful death case are (1) the death of a human being; (2) that death being caused by the negligence of a person or legal entity and (3) damages to the surviving family as a result of the death.

When a tragic vehicle accident robs the life of your loved one, there is simply no amount of money that can bring him or her back or relieve the pain and anguish you are suffering, but you are entitled to compensation for funeral expenses and other damages you and your family have incurred as a result of the unexpected death. After a deadly crash like this, you need to know what damages you and your family are entitled to receive. In addition, it’s essential to understand that while there are many damages available, there are caps on the amount of damages a family can receive for loss of society and companionship.

When a child under the age of 18 is a victim of a wrongful death in Wisconsin, $500,000 is the maximum in damages a family can receive. In the event the victim is an adult over the age of 18, the maximum damages a family can collect are $350,000. It is very important to remember that there are other damages likely available. If you or someone you know has suffered the death of a family member at the hands of a drunk, drugged, distracted or otherwise negligent driver, please contact Stangl Law Offices, S.C. immediately for a free, no-obligation case consultation at 800.353.2120 or feel free to fill out the case evaluation form on our website.
