Losing someone by natural causes is in and of itself unbelievably painful, but losing a loved one because of another person’s carelessness is especially tragic. Wrongful death cases usually deal with an unintentional death caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. For example, wrongful death cases are often related to:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Dangerous or defective products
- Construction accidents
- Deaths caused by shootings or stabbings, where those deaths could have been prevented.
No matter the cause, wrongful death cases leave the victim’s family with inconceivable emotional and financial suffering.
Sometimes the victim is the main wage earner, leaving only you to fend for yourself and your family; other times, the victim is retired or a child that still had much to offer the world. It is especially demanding to be able to properly grieve the unexpected loss, while suddenly being plunged into a reality of costly funeral expenses, medical bills, and every day bills that were covered by the deceased’s income. If the victim’s death was caused by the carelessness of another person or company, the surviving family members may have a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. It is impossible for a judge or a jury to bring back your loved one and there is no way to accurately measure the victim’s life or your loss; however, money is the only thing the law can provide as reparation for your loss. Some of the financial compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit may include: medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, loss of benefits, and funeral and burial costs.
