Should I Consider a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Following the loss of a family member that resulted from someone’s negligence, you and your family may be eligible to compensation for:
- Lost income and support
- Lost future earnings
- Lost benefits
- Lost retirement funds
- Lost companionship, guidance, and protection
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Emotional and mental pain and suffering
In certain cases, the court may award punitive damages in cases where gross negligence or intentional misconduct has been demonstrated. Punitive damages are meant to punish a defendant with additional damages to be paid to the family of the victim. Our attorneys will answer all of your questions during your consultation.
There are various types of wrongful death cases, including:
Medical Malpractice – If a healthcare provider’s negligence caused or contributed to the patient’s death, the surviving family members may have a medical malpractice claim.
Product Liability – If a defective or dangerous product caused the death, the surviving family members may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer or seller of the product.
Motor Vehicle Accidents – If the death was caused by a motor vehicle accident, the surviving family members may have a claim against the driver or other parties whose negligence contributed to the accident.
Workplace Accidents – If the death occurred on the job, the surviving family members may have a claim against the employer or other parties whose negligence contributed to the accident.
If you are facing the loss of a loved one due to a wrongful death, there are steps you can take to protect your rights and seek justice. Consider the following:
Contact an Attorney – A wrongful death attorney can help you determine if you have a claim and guide you through the legal process.
Preserve Evidence – If possible, gather any evidence related to the death, such as medical records, accident reports, and witness statements.
Keep Records – Keep track of any expenses related to the death, such as funeral costs, medical bills, and lost income.
