Wrongful death happens when a family member is killed due to the negligence of someone else. Wrongful death claims seek compensation for losses resulting from this death.
A number of situations can lead to a wrongful death case including medical mistakes, car accidents, criminal attacks, work-related injuries and other accidents.
It’s important to note that in a wrongful death case, timelines are extremely tight.
It’s critical that you choose the right legal advisor as quickly as possible because insurers can refuse to pay for expenses incurred before the proper forms are submitted.
There are a number of considerations you’ll want to know before you proceed:
- If your family has lost its main income earner, benefits may be available for funeral expenses and a modest death benefit may be available for the spouse and dependents of the deceased.
- Wrongful death damages usually depend upon the relationship of the plaintiff to the deceased. Specific wrongful death damages available to parents include loss of companionship and mental anguish caused by their child’s death. Damages for spouses include loss of companionship, potential financial contributions and mental anguish.
- The wrongful death damages awarded to children after the death of a parent vary based upon age.
