Wrongful Death

When an individual dies due to the negligence, malpractice, or inaction of another person, the family of the victim can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful deaths can result from a range of events or accidents; the most common causes of wrongful death include auto accidents, use of defective products, medical malpractice, and construction accidents.

Wrongful Death Damages

Families who file a successful wrongful death lawsuit can be awarded thousands, even millions, of dollars in damages. Damages in wrongful death cases can be awarded for the deceased’s medical bills, loss of wages, funeral and burial expenses.

Hiring a Wrongful Death Attorney

Hiring a wrongful death attorney can help your case; wrongful death attorneys are well-versed in the law, the statutes of limitations for filing a claim, and the elements needed to prove fault in wrongful death cases.

Proving Fault for a Wrongful Death Claim

In order to obtain compensation, the families of wrongful death victims must prove that the fatality was the result of another person or party’s negligence or malpractice. If the person filing the claim can show proof of fault, compensation will not be awarded.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In most cases, only close family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of their loved one. But no matter what, it is always a good idea to speak with a wrongful death attorney to find out who is eligible to file wrongful death lawsuits.
