When you lose a loved one, it is difficult to think about discussing the potential legal options you may have. One way to assist the families of the deceased is to file a wrongful death claims. This type of action is filed for the purposes of seeking compensation from the party who caused the deceased person’s death, and are often filed by the deceased’s spouse, children and sometimes parents.
This recovery is used to cover such expenses as:
– Medical expenses, funeral and burial costs of the deceased
– Lost income
– Pain and suffering
A wrongful death can be caused by car accidents, slip and falls or medical malpractice, just to name a few. There is no way to quantify what amount is appropriate to compensate a person for the loss of their loved one, but taking legal action against a party responsible for causing your loss, whether from negligent, reckless or careless conduct, can ease the financial hardships that can be associated with such a devastating loss.
If you have lost a loved one, due to the negligence, reckless or careless act of another, you may be entitled to compensation for your emotional and financial loss.
