Wrongful Death

We lost our children through a combination of a drunk driver and a defectively designed highway. While it is true, no amount of money could replace the loss of our children, at the same time, our family knew what our children would do had they been alive. After a number of years in litigation, we ultimately received sufficient funds in order to erect a memorial at our church, and at the same time, force the State Highway Department to redesign the defective highway.

“My son was operating his bicycle after getting off work when he was struck by two teenagers who were racing their trucks. My son died upon impact. I hired Stanford Law Offices, S.C. who pursued a wrongful death action against the two trucks which were drag racing. Stanford Law Offices, S.C., through its resources of investigation and discovery, traced the facts to the operators of the trucks were intoxicated at the time and were racing when my son was killed. We filed a wrongful death action against both drivers and the persons who supplied alcohol. We prevailed at trial, brought peace to my family and was able to get on with my life. I cannot say enough about Stanford Law Offices, S.C. and assisting my family in my dire time of need.”

“My wife was on a tour bus, when it was struck by another vehicle causing my wife to fly through the windshield. My wife died a few days later. There were a number of insurance questions in dispute and no one was helping me. I hired Stanford Law Offices, S.C., pursued a wrongful death action against the other driver, and an uninsured motorist claim. Stanford Law Offices, S.C. prevailed on both actions, and was able to bring peace to my family.”

“I was a 27 year old single mother traveling to work. I was pregnant when I was driving to work. Another driver ran a red light, struck my motor vehicle causing the premature birth and death of my child. The other driver fled the scene and the police refused to cooperate.

I hired Stanford Law Offices. Stanford Law Offices, through its own investigative means, found the other driver and pursued civil remedies against it and a number of insurance companies I never knew existed. While no amount of money can replace what my family lost, Stanford Law Offices was able to lessen the damage to my family. This accident happened in 1994. To this day, my family remains friends with Stanford Law Offices.”

“I was seven months pregnant when another driver ran a stop sign. My child was born, however, severely disabled. I hired Stanford Law Offices. Stanford Law Offices pursued remedies against insurance companies I never felt were possibly responsible, or I could have pursued by virtue of the other driver running the stop sign. By virtue of the result I obtained from Stanford Law Offices, my child was able to attend special education classes her entire life. In addition, a Trust was set up on her behalf where her financial, educational and daily needs have been met from the time she was born for an excess of 17 years. Stanford Law Offices has not only been our lawyer, but we consider them part of our family.”
