The Attorneys at Zinda Law Group Work on Contingency
When you become a client of Zinda Law Group, you are not required to pay any fees until your case is successfully settled.

This means that filing a lawsuit against the party responsible for your loved one's death is completely risk-free. Once you become a client of Zinda Law Group, we start working on the discovery phase of your lawsuit right away. This is where we gather evidence, interview witnesses, and hire medical experts to prove your case.
Possible Outcomes of Your Wrongful Death Case
Ideally, the party who caused your family member's death will accept responsibility and agree to an out-of-court settlement. Your family member's death doesn't need to be deliberate in order for someone to be held accountable for it. If it was the result of manslaughter or homicide, a separate criminal trial is held to determine how the other party should be punished. When the other party denies responsibility in a civil lawsuit, the case goes to trial. The McKinney wrongful death attorneys at Zinda Law Group aggressively represent you in court to seek the compensation you deserve.
There are several forms of financial compensation you may receive in a winning lawsuit. The other party may have to pay funeral expenses, medical costs, and the wages your loved one would have earned if he or she was still alive. The jury also considers non-monetary issues, such as emotional distress and loss of companionship. Punitive damages may be assessed if the responsible party acted in a particularly reckless manner to cause your loved one's death. Call 800-863-5312 to learn more and get a free consultation today.
