Wrongful death occurs when a loved one is killed as a result of the recklessness, negligence or fault of another. While wrongful death is often the result of catastrophic auto accidents, it can also be the result of defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect and other serious personal injury accidents.
Wrongful death claims may be brought by a surviving spouse, parent or child. A wrongful death claim enables you to seek compensation for how your loved one’s death has affected your family—financially and emotionally. Common damages for which family members may seek compensation include:
- Lost Wages (Current and Future)
- Lost Retirement Benefits
- Lost Health Benefits
- Funeral Expenses
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Companionship
- Pain and Suffering
Only an experienced wrongful death attorney can tell you what damages you may be able to seek compensation for in your particular circumstance.
