Understanding Wrongful Death Claims

Imagine a future you planned, a future filled with laughter, milestones, and cherished memories, shattered in an instant. This is the devastating reality families face after a wrongful death.

A wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or entity. It’s a legal term that acknowledges the immense loss and allows surviving family members to seek justice and compensation.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

In most states, spouses, children, and sometimes even parents or dependents can file a wrongful death claim. The specific laws vary by location, so it’s crucial to consult with an experienced attorney to understand your rights.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

  • Car Accidents: Drunk driving, distracted driving, and reckless driving are all leading causes of wrongful death on the roads.
  • Medical Malpractice: When a medical professional’s negligence results in death, it may be considered wrongful death.
  • Workplace Accidents: Unsafe work environments or faulty equipment can lead to tragic consequences.
  • Product Liability: Defective products that cause death may be grounds for a wrongful death claim.

Seeking Justice After a Wrongful Death

No amount of money can truly replace a loved one. However, a wrongful death claim can help alleviate some of the financial burdens associated with the loss. Compensation may cover:

  • Medical Bills: Costs associated with the final illness or injury.
  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Lost Wages: The income the deceased would have earned.
  • Loss of Companionship: The emotional impact on surviving family.
