Free Consultation

Wrongful death

Wrongful death is a tragic and emotionally charged issue that affects countless families each year. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or misconduct of another party, it's important to understand your rights and options for seeking justice and compensation. This guide will provide you with a comprehensive overview of wrongful death claims, including the elements that must be proven, the types of damages that may be available, and the steps involved in the claims process.

At the heart of every wrongful death claim is the requirement that the deceased person's death was caused by the defendant's negligence or intentional misconduct. This may include medical malpractice, defective products, car accidents, and other forms of personal injury. To succeed in a wrongful death claim, it is essential to have strong evidence, including expert testimony and eyewitness accounts, to support your case.

When a loved one is taken too soon due to someone else's actions, it's natural to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about what to do next. However, by taking the time to understand your rights and the process involved in a wrongful death claim, you can be better prepared to navigate the challenges ahead. Some common types of damages that may be available in a wrongful death claim include:

Funeral and burial expenses

Loss of income and benefits

Loss of companionship, love, and support

Pain and suffering experienced by the deceased person before death
