Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult times in our lives, and even more so when that loss occurs due to the negligence of another person or business. Although there is no way to take away the pain and suffering of loss, there is hope to receive help for the financial burdens that many families are faced with after a wrongful death occurs. The law is not adequate in “fixing” a situation involving wrongful death, but it does provide families with the opportunity to better handle the financial consequences. That’s where working with the best and most experienced Phoenix wrongful death attorney comes in.
If you’ve lost a child, parent or spouse because of another person or company’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain and suffering. Determining if you have a valid wrongful death claim can be complex and frustrating, but the personal injury team at JacksonWhite is dedicated to offering you a clear path to the legal results you deserve. Our team, led by attorney Jared Everton, can clearly outline your options and help you decide on a course of action that has your family’s best interests in mind.
In Arizona, you have up to two years after a loved one’s death to file a wrongful death claim. Because of this time frame, it’s recommended that you seek help as soon as possible if you believe that your loved one died because of someone else’s negligence. The family members that are able to file a wrongful death claim in Arizona are spouses, children and parents of the deceased person. Personal representatives for these family members can also file claims. A wrongful death claim is a civil matter, and because there are no criminal aspects, the claim is focused on providing financial compensation for loss, pain and suffering endured because of a loved one’s death. You can receive compensation for:
- Medical, funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of loved one’s income and services
- Pain and suffering from loss
These are all complicated factors, and the compensation you may be entitled to will be determined by all the circumstances surrounding your loved one’s death. During your free consultation with Jared Everton, you can provide basic information about your case, and he’ll discuss the strength of your case and how all these factors work to determine if you have a legitimate wrongful death claim.

Compassionate Legal Care When it Matters Most
For plaintiffs looking for a wrongful death attorney, JacksonWhite Attorneys at Law will fight for you and your family in your hour of greatest need. The loss of a loved one is one of the most painful, traumatic things a person can experience, especially if the loss could have been prevented. While nothing can ever truly compensate for a tragedy of this magnitude, a wrongful death action can provide family members with needed financial relief.
For example, a widow may be left to raise children without the income or insurance benefits of her late husband. Victims can also receive compensation for emotional pain suffered as a result of the loss. We’ve helped clients across Arizona receive fair compensation for the death of family members.
