Serving Families Mourning the Death of a Loved One
When is it a Wrongful Death?
Losing a family member is one of the most difficult experiences to go through. The pain can feel indescribable and the grief can be unbearable. Losing a loved one is always tragic but when the death is due to someone else’s negligence, the experience can be even more challenging.
Many questions may come to mind in the aftermath of a loved one’s untimely death. How will you pay for the funeral arrangements? What will happen to the surviving family members who depended on the now-deceased loved one? Who can be held responsible?

Arkansas Wrongful Death Lawyer
Many people do not have the money to hire a lawyer, we at The Brad Hendricks Law Firm understand — we do not charge you for a personal consultation about your wrongful death case. We also work on a contingency basis, meaning our fee is paid at the end of the case out of a portion of the funds recovered. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us.
