Coping with the loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things a family can experience. We understand that the death of a loved one cannot be adequately addressed through legal action. A family, however, may achieve some sense of closure and financial relief to help ease the burden as the family grieves and endeavors to recover from the loss of a family member.
When the death of a family member was caused by the wrongdoing or negligence of another, the surviving family members may have the right to file a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death action can also hold the responsible party accountable, deter similar conduct in the future, and also be a means to obtain necessary funds to pay bills and expenses to fill the financial void created by the sudden loss of the wages and benefits provided by a deceased family member. Seeking justice for a family member can also help alleviate your grief. One of our experienced wrongful death attorneys can examine the facts of your case and help navigate you through the process of deciding whether filing a wrongful death claim is the right thing to do for you and for your family.
Every state allows the heirs of a family to file a wrongful death lawsuit in the event of another party’s wrongful conduct or negligence that caused the death of a family member. While no amount of money can ever compensate for the loss of a beloved family member, bringing responsible parties to justice for their actions that resulted in the loss of a family member can be comforting. Additionally, the financial compensation that may come with a settlement or verdict that holds those responsible to account for their actions can help bring a sense of closure and security to surviving family members.
Damages you may be able to recover include:
- Loss of services, protection, care, and assistance
- Loss of future income
- Sorrow, mental anguish, and solace
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Punitive damages in the event of willful or wanton conduct
