Wrongful Death

Coping with the loss of a loved one can be one of the most trying times of your life. When your family member's death was caused by another party's negligence or wrongdoing, the grieving process only intensifies In these instances, 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.

 

How Wrongful Deaths Occur

 

By definition, a wrongful death is when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. Those who were dependent on, or a beneficiary of, may be entitled to monetary damages.  Wrongful deaths do occur in situations such as:

 

  • Vehicle Accidents - Automobile companies may be held responsible for defective products in their automobile, while trucking companies may be held accountable for truck accidents if their employee breaks trucking regulations

 

Compensation for Wrongful Death

 

Each state allows the heirs of a family to file a wrongful death lawsuit in the event of another party's negligence causing the death of a loved one. 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.
