Wrongful Death Cases Require Experienced Lawyers with Many Resources
When someone is killed due to the negligence or recklessness of another, it is considered a wrongful death. Anytime there is a personal injury case, there is the possibility that the injury could lead to an incident of wrongful death, depending on the severity of the injuries.
We understand that the aftermath of losing a loved one to a wrongful death caused by the negligence of another is very difficult. However, it is critical to remember that the parents, spouse, or children of the victim have the right to file a law suit against the responsible party to receive compensation for the mental and emotional anguish, and financial damages, as well as any physical pain and suffering sustained by the victim prior to death.
Separate from the wrongful death claim, the family may be able to file a “survival claim.” This is a claim belonging to the estate of the of the deceased, and is for damages such as the pain and suffering of the victim prior to death, and to cover any medical expenses that may have been accumulated during that time.
