Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Your spouse has a derivative claim. Simply stated, your spouse may have lost the benefit of one or more of your services in and around the home. As such, he/she is entitled to be compensated for this loss. Since this is the case, insurance companies generally will not settle a claim, unless both spouses are included in the settlement agreement.


Testimonials

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
