Our experienced wrongful death attorneys and legal staff can help you through this difficult time.
Wrongful death is when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another. Those who were dependent on, or a beneficiary of, may be entitled to monetary damages.
While no compensation can justify the loss of a loved one, pursuing a wrongful death claim can help your family during this trying time. Coping with the loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult times of your life. Depending on the circumstances, you may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit and receive the closure and financial compensation to which you and your family are entitled. Also, pursing a claim empowers you to compel others to be careful to prevent circumstances that could lead to a wrongful death.
Some instances of wrongful death include but are not limited to deaths stemming from vehicle accidents, medical negligence/malpractice, malfunctioning products made by a negligent
manufacturer or negligence of government entities who may have the duty to protect the public from harm.
Heirs of a family may file a wrongful death lawsuit in the event of another’s negligence causing the death of a loved one. Some factors that courts consider when determining wrongful death damages one may receive include:
The amount of money earned by the deceased
Loss of companionship
The savings of the deceased
The degree to which survivors were financially dependent on the deceased
Expenses incurred by survivors for medical and funeral costs
While no amount of financial payment can ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, being financially secure in your future and the comfort of responsible parties being brought to justice can provide a sense of closure and security to survivors.
The laws involved in wrongful death lawsuits are complicated and vary in each state. During your grieving period, consideration of a wrongful death lawsuit may not seem urgent-however, wrongful death cases must be filed within a specific time period or you risk losing your right to financial compensation.
