The Wrongful Death Law Firm Serving Kalispell Montana
Wrongful Death Info
When the family members or loved ones of someone who has passed away as a result of another’s misconduct or negligence take civil action, it’s known as a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim allows them to seek monetary compensation to make up for the emotional and financial support their loved one’s death has taken away from them.
A wrongful death is when another person’s actions, negligence or recklessness cause some to die. Your lawyer will need to make the case that the responsible party had a duty of care towards the deceased individual, and that as a result of their actions, that standard of care was breached.
In addition, your lawyer will attempt to prove that those negligent actions were the direct cause of your loved one’s death, and that damages (emotional and financial) resulted. Some of the most common ways that wrongful deaths occur are:
As the spouse, child, or parents of the deceased, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim and seek damages. Don’t delay. Filing your claim immediately will ensure that you comply with the Montana statute of limitations and will increase the likelihood that your case will be successful.
We understand the pain and grief that you’re now going through. Although it’s true that no sum of money can bring your loved one back, it’s only right that you want those who are responsible for this tragedy to be held to account. We’ll do our utmost to seek justice for your family.

You don’t need to feel guilty about hiring a Kalispell MT wrongful death lawyer to seek damages if the death of your loved one was caused by negligence. You’ll have to deal with both financial and emotional loss, and you deserve to be compensated for it.
Your lawyer will first need to establish whether the death of your loved one was directly caused by the negligence and recklessness of another person, and also look at other factors related to Montana state law. Contact a wrongful death lawyer Kalispell as soon as you can for a free case evaluation.
Do I have to pay you if we don’t win?
Not at all. You and your family are going through enough without having to worry about paying legal bills. We’ll give you a Free Injury Consultation, and you won’t pay us anything at all until your case is won.
How long will my case take?
A wrongful death case can take time to build, since there may be a lot of evidence that needs to be considered. We will work as fast as we can, since we know that your time is valuable and that you’ll want closure as soon as possible.
Most of the cases we handle don’t go to court, since it’s usually possible to get a fair payout via an out of court settlement. However, if the other party isn’t willing to negotiate, we will fight for you in court until we get the best possible result.
Am I eligible for death benefits?
If you are a close family member of the deceased - spouse, child, or parent - you could be entitled to death benefits. These benefits will depend on your relationship to the deceased and the damages caused by their death, such as grief and suffering, loss of companionship, and so on.
Just like in other states, Montana abides by a law called the statute of limitations, which put a time limit on filing wrongful death lawsuits. You have three years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a case in court.
A number of additional factors can play a part in determining the level of compensation you’ll receive. These include the deceased’s income, their saving, the impact on the financial situation of your family, and medical and funeral costs.
I don’t want to profit from my loss.
This isn’t about seeking profit, it’s about fairness and justice. The law is designed to punish negligent behavior and help you recover from your loss, so you should never feel guilty about filing a wrongful death claim.
