Wrongful Death Claims
When a life is lost due to negligence, often there are criminal charges applicable to those responsible, leaving loved ones thinking that a guilty verdict will be the end of this matter. However, criminal trials do not provide compensation for this loss. Civil action against the negligent parties may be possible, whether there is a criminal charge addressing the incident or not. Wrongful death claims often include;
- Car Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Distracted Driving
- Truck Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Slip and Fall
What Can be Included in a Wrongful Death Claim?
No amount of money can ever bring back the loss of a loved one, but this should not discourage families from considering legal action. Wrongful death suits are not only designed to compensate for pain and suffering, but also the tangible holes that the deceased has left with their absence. Wrongful death suits can include compensation for:
- Pain and anguish of loved ones
- Associated medical bills
- Funeral expenses
- Lost wages and future earnings
- Loss of services, such as medical insurance
Other terms of compensation may be applicable depending on your circumstances. What every wrongful death suit does have in common, however, is the need for sharp and incisive legal counsel unafraid of litigation. Often these cases are brought against companies and larger entities who have considerable legal resources.
