Have you experienced a wrongful death loss in your family?
Every year families experience a loss of a loved because of the negligence of someone else. Nothing can ever replace a loved one whose life has been cut short, but the surviving family members should receive fair compensation for the loss of financial and emotional support from the victim.
Wrongful death cases can be filed because of a wide range of causes. Cases may be the result of a drunk driver, motor vehicle or bicycle accidents. Other deaths may be caused by poor care at a nursing home or from the use of a faulty product.
As the surviving family of a victim, you are entitled to compensation for a loss. However, you usually must file a claim within 2 years of the date of your family member’s death.
- Surviving spouse
- Guardian or legal representative for any of the above mentioned family members
The types of compensation received for the loss relate to the relationship of the family member to the deceased individual. Loss of companionship, mental anguish and financial support are the types of damages the liable person may be required to pay based on your case and your relationship to the victim.
Losing a family member because of a wrongful death is difficult to face alone.
