Settlements and Damages In Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death actions are usually very complicated, as the wrongful acts of several parties may have contributed to an individual’s death. Pre-trial, or settlements are a common thing in wrongful death cases, because most liable defendants want to avoid the publicity of having caused a death to a loved one.
In Alaska there are CAPS (recovery may not exceed) on the amount of damages one may recover in a wrongful death claim for non-economic loss. It is typical to retain expert economists to calculate the issue of economic damages. We have experience with economists who may assist us in the settling or litigation of a case.
Helping Alaskan Families After the Loss of a Spouse
Facing the loss of a spouse, whether age-related, medically related or accident-related, is never easy. The pain exacts an exorbitant emotional toll that is far too slow to fade away. However, when a spouse is lost to premature death through the negligent actions of another person, the pain is exceeded only by anger and questions. How could this happen?
Contact our office to discuss your situation with an attorney today. Denali Law Group has the experience and compassion to answer your questions as best they can be answered.
How Will You Get by Without Your Loved One at Your Side?
Losing a spouse to wrongful death is a traumatic experience. Where do you turn when your soul mate is no longer by your side? In addition to the loss of companionship and consortium, there is loss of security — both emotional and financial.
If the spouse was the primary income earner, how will bills get paid? Who will handle the finances? What happens to retirement accounts? If the spouse was the primary caregiver for the children, who will care for the kids? What happens to the house?
At Denali Law we cannot bring your loved one back, but we can help you find answers to your questions and fight for compensation for your wrongful death claim.
We work with investigators, experts and doctors to review your situation and determine who the negligent party was that caused the death of your spouse.

Experienced Lawyers Handling Alaskan Child Death Cases
Parents are not supposed to bury their children — the loss is simply too great, the pain too difficult to manage. The death of a child is traumatic and devastating to everyone involved. If this death comes as a result of someone’s negligence, the pain is amplified.
At Denali Law we work with parents and families that are coping with the death of their children. Although nothing we do can bring back a child, we work diligently to seek all remedies the law can provide.

Assisting Grieving Families Through Times of Great Loss
Sudden and tragic death can happen in an instant. We know that money can never compensate or console you following the death of a child, but it can help to ensure that the negligent party bears responsibility for its actions and can often be used to help educate others to ensure that no one else loses his or her life so unnecessarily.
