After the unexpected loss of a loved one, you may need an experienced wrongful death attorney to handle your sensitive case. Not only are you left with the personal suffering of the loss of a loved one, but funeral costs, medical bills, future lost wages and more can have a financial impact on survivors.
What is a wrongful death lawsuit?
Wrongful death can be caused by negligence, misconduct, wrongful acts or carelessness by a person or entity responsible for the person’s death. A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action brought by the victim’s loved ones seeking compensation for damages caused by the person’s death, including loss of companionship, pain and suffering, punitive damages and recovery for the financial losses associated with the individual’s passing prematurely. Each state has its own wrongful death statute, and the issue of liability is determined by the tort law of the state in which the incident occurred.
Why seek out an attorney.
A wrongful death attorney can help you seek compensation for your loss on behalf of the victim’s estate and survivors, including losses associated with lost future earnings or any medical or funeral expenses. Your attorney also will help navigate the legal complexities associated with a wrongful death lawsuit against the party responsible for the death and special circumstances such as children, or the elderly.
