Wrongful Death Claims

When you have lost a loved one the pain will last for the remainder of your life. The pain of loss is something that’s devastating beyond words. However to lose a loved one wrongfully is simply cruel and unjust.

Wrongful Death Compensation

If you’ve lost a loved one as the result of a personal injury accident, there is no amount of money that can ever bring your loved one back. Nobody can replace your loss, or properly compensate you. While there is no price to replace human life, loved ones successful in their wrongful death lawsuit and survival action may be able to recover money for:

  • The deceased’s medical expenses;
  • Funeral and burial expenses;
  • The deceased’s conscious mental and physical pain and suffering (actually considered a ‘survival action’);
  • Loss of the deceased’s financial support and benefits for his or her expected lifetime (income, pension, medical coverage);
  • Increased expenses incurred (such as for paying someone to perform the duties previously performed by the homemaker); and/or
  • Loss of consortium, companionship, care, guidance and affection.

Wrongful death can be defined as the loss of life wrongfully caused by another’s negligence or another’s actions or inactions. Wrongful Deaths are the result of the negligence or reckless act of another person or corporation. Some of the common causes of wrongful death are car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, work accidents, drunk drivers, plane crashes, medical malpractice, construction accidents, offshore accidents, defective drugs, and defective products (product liability cases). Whatever the cause of a wrongful death, holding those at fault accountable can sometimes prevent others from dying a wrongful death.
