Dealing with fatal injury and the sudden death of a loved one is one of the most traumatic events a personal can experience. When the negligence of others takes a life and throws a family into disarray, you need an experienced attorney to pursue compensation for the loss of a life. Even though no amount of money can ever compensate losing a brother, or a wife, or a child, being compensated brings at least some benefit and closer to the family who lost that person.
A wrongful death claim is filed by the personal representative for the estate of the individual who was killed. We structure your lawsuit to prove the negligence of the parties who contributed to the deadly accident. By proving negligence, you can be awarded monetary compensation including the following:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of companionship, love and guidance of a spouse, parent or child
- Lost future earnings and support to the family of the deceased.
