Why You Need a Wrongful Death Attorney for Your Personal Injury: Columbus & Fort Benning, GA and Phenix City & Opelika, Alabama
Before considering what we can do to help you, please accept our condolences for your loss.
Often, even the idea of having to deal with the loss of a loved one is hard. This pain is multiplied many times over if you’re dealing with a death that occurred as the result of a willful or negligent act of other person or persons. Not only is it tough (and sometimes impossible) to deal with the financial impact and turmoil that this loss will place directly on your shoulders, it can also be very expensive.
If someone in your family was killed as a result of a willful or negligent act, you may have what is commonly called a “wrongful death” claim against the person or persons that caused the death. It is important to seek the compensation and support that you and your family will need to get you through. Our attorneys at Harp, Poyadasheff, Post & Sowers have the skills that you need in your time of crisis to handle wrongful death in the least painful way possible. In the end, it’s about getting the justice you want while helping your family find financial security to restore your peace of mind and get some well-deserved respite.

Why Hiring a Wrongful Death Attorney is The Right Decision
