The sudden death of a loved one causes unimaginable grief. From family to friends, everyone will likely carry this tragedy with them the rest of their lives. If you've recently lost a loved one before their time because of someone else's negligent or wrongful actions, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover financial compensation.
A wrongful death action can be brought by the victim’s surviving heirs against the liable party to recover funeral and medical expenses, any lost wages, loss of future earnings of the deceased person, and loss of companionship and services. Although we know that no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one, obtaining monetary compensation will ease the financial stress and anxiety which survivors experience as a result of added expenses or a decrease in familial income.
In my experience, the majority of wrongful death cases are complex and require a knowledgeable wrongful death lawyer to expose the facts and hold those responsible accountable for their actions. There are many instances where a fatality can occur that leads to a wrongful death lawsuit, but the most common are car accidents, pedestrian-auto accidents, motorcycle-related accidents, workplace accidents, construction accidents, and defective products.
