Whether from accidents, disease or old age, death is an unfortunate fact of life.  But unnecessary, preventable death caused by someone's negligence is a horrible tragedy.  Pursuing a legal case for wrongful death of a loved one can be complicated and expensive.  But pursuing the claim is necessary to recover for damages to those left behind and to protect their economic future.  And in some cases it can give meaning to the loss by preventing the same fate from happening to someone else.

A wrongful death is defined as the loss of life to a person as a result of another person’s negligent actions, whether intentional or unintentional. If an individual or entity cause’s harm to another person and the injuries sustained result in death, then the individual may be held liable for wrongful death.

Nothing can change anguish and heart ache that is felt in the aftermath of losing a loved one. It is important to remember that when a person is fatally injured as the result of the negligence of another, the parents, spouse or children are granted the right to bring a lawsuit against the responsible party for damages. Damages can include mental anguish, physical pain and suffering (if death was not instantaneous), funeral expenses, medical expenses and economic damages.

A wrongful death claim may be filed against anyone or any institution that was legally at fault for a person’s death. This can include:

  • Individuals
  • Medical institutions
  • Government institutions
  • Companies

Insurance companies will always attempt to obtain the lowest settlement possible to resolve a wrongful death claim. It is important to have a law firm on your side that knows how to deal with complex wrongful death lawsuits.
