Compassionate Attorney Represents Families of Deceased Accident Victims in Knox County and Anderson County

Every family grieves the loss of a loved one differently, and there is not a right or wrong way to do so. Some individuals experience tremendous sadness, while others get angry. Some people shut down and are unable to make important decisions, and others try to address concerns about how to move forward. In many cases, a family may experience all of these emotions and more. Unfortunately, such feelings can become even more complicated when the death was caused by the actions or negligence of another party.

At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we know that losing a loved one unexpectedly is devastating to the victim's surviving family members. While we cannot bring your loved one back or completely eliminate your pain, we can offer compassion and the opportunity to ease the financial burden caused by your loved one's death. It is impossible to put a dollar value on the life of your loved one, but with our help, you and your family can begin rebuilding for the future.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases in Tennessee

When a death is caused by the negligent or wrongful actions of someone other than the victim, the victim's spouse, children, parents, or personal representative may be entitled to collect compensation from the responsible party. It is important to keep in mind that a wrongful act does not necessarily mean criminal behavior. You can pursue a wrongful death claim even if no criminal charges are ever filed. In fact, due to the different standards of proof in civil cases and criminal cases, you could successfully collect compensation for wrongful death from a defendant who is found not guilty of related criminal charges.

The experienced wrongful death attorney at The Law Office of William F. Evans can help your family seek compensation for deaths related to:

  • Auto accidents: Drunk drivers, reckless drivers, and distracted drivers could be held liable for fatal car, truck, or motorcycle crashes.
  • Premises liability accidents: When unsafe conditions on another party's property contribute to a victim's death, the property owner may be financially responsible.
  • Dangerous or defective products: Many people are killed each year by faulty or defective consumer products, and the manufacturers, distributors, and designers may share in the liability for such deaths.
  • Criminal acts: A wrongful death action may be appropriate in cases of involuntary manslaughter, including vehicular homicide, reckless homicide, and criminally negligent homicide, as well as other criminal behavior that causes a death.
