Wrongful Death

Jackson wrongful death attorneys bringing your family justice

If a member of your immediate family lost his or her life as a result of another's negligence, recklessness, malpractice or inaction, you may have a wrongful death lawsuit.  The attorneys at Langston & Langston, PLLC fight to provide just compensation to family members who have been emotionally and financially devastated because of the death of a loved one.

We work tirelessly to recover financial compensation for the surviving spouse or partner, children, and parents of the deceased.  The financial compensation won in your recovery can be used to cover any or all of the following:

  • Direct expenses—medical bills and funeral costs
  • Loss of benefits—what the deceased could have received in pension and retirement benefits
  • Loss of future earnings—what the deceased would have earned in salary
  • Loss of companionship—what the person who died would have emotionally provided a relationship, including the pain and suffering resulting from the death of your loved one
  • Punitive damages—the amount the defendant should be punished for his or her action resulting in the victim's death

Mississippi state law sets a two year statute of limitations for medical malpractice suits, and a three year statute of limitations for all other cases.  it is important to act quickly as Mississippi will not honor claims filed after the designated time frame and the opportunity to recover damages for the family will be lost forever.

The attorneys at Langston & Langston, PLLC build a solid case for your claim—

  • Gathering evidence
  • Making sure you completely understand the law
  • Completing necessary paperwork
