What is Wrongful Death?

A claim for wrongful death arises when a family member or partner dies as a result of the negligence or misconduct of someone else.

In these situations, those who were dependent on, or a beneficiary of, the victim may be entitled to monetary damages.

The laws concerning wrongful death lawsuits are complicated and specific. Although the mere thought of filing a death-related lawsuit understandably seems trivial during your time of grief, you should remember that wrongful death cases must be filed within a specific time period, otherwise you risk losing your right to financial compensation.

When determining how much money to award the deceased’s heirs, the court will consider…

  • Loss of earnings and financial support;
  • Medical, burial and funeral expenses incurred;
  • The savings of the deceased;
  • Loss of companionship and service;
  • Mental anguish, grief and sorrow.

While no amount of money can compensate for the tragic loss of a loved-one, obtaining financial security while being comforted by the fact that the responsible parties were brought to justice can provide much-needed closure and security to you and your grieving family.
