Wrongful death is any death that occurs unnecessarily, whether through negligence or accident. The loss of a loved one can be tremendously difficult. The need for grieving sometimes causes people to postpone pursuing wrongful death claims. Time may be of the essence for investigation and information gathering thus, with the loss of a family member, hiring an attorney should be done promptly.
In most states, surviving children, parents and spouses may make a claim for wrongful death. Each individual has a claim, though often times they are brought jointly by other surviving family members. A wrongful death claim is statutorily created. Claims can include medical expenses of the deceased prior to the death that led up to the death as well as lost wages past and future for those relying upon support such as wife, husband and/or children and loss of love, affection, society and companionship.
Recoveries for wrongful death may be significant. Each case is fact specific. Claims can vary widely, but we’ll work to get an appropriate and meaningful recovery.
