Seek Compensation During This Difficult Time

When a loved one or family member dies due to the negligent conduct or intentional wrongdoing of an individual or company, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. These types of claims are designed to help the loved ones or family members of the victim recover monetary losses suffered from their death.

This can include funeral expenses, medical bills, pain and suffering, the loss of value of the deceased’s remaining life, and loss of support or care. Our wrongful death attorneys know that grieving can be hard and the last thing on your mind are legal issues. However, filing a claim may be very helpful and important during this difficult time.

If you need legal assistance, contact Easley & Houseal, PLLC today.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The state of Arkansas requires that a wrongful death claim is brought by an appointed personal representative of the deceased's estate. However, if there is no appointed personal representative, the claim can be brought by one of the deceased's heirs at law.

These heirs may include:

  • Surviving spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Persons standing "in loco parentis"
  • Persons to whom the deceased stood "in loco parentis"

Negotiating With the Insurance Company to Ensure a Fair Settlement

At Easley & Houseal, PLLC, we fully understand how difficult the loss of a loved one can be for your family. During this emotional and confusing time, few people immediately think about pursuing compensation for their loss and even fewer know where to begin.

On top of this, insurance companies often approach the surviving spouse or beneficiaries within days of the loss and offer an insufficient settlement amount that works to the detriment of the survivors.

Before signing any agreement with the insurance company, contact our St. Francis County attorneys and let us step in and negotiate for the fair settlement that you deserve. We provide you with the compassionate yet aggressive legal representation that you need to ensure your family is treated with dignity and respect.
