death of another person, even when accidental, this may be grounds for
the family or the representative of the decedent’s estate to bring

or professional misconduct that led to a
car accident that caused the death of another person.

Why Should I File a Wrongful Death Claim?
When a loved one’s life has tragically been cut short due to the
irresponsible and flippant acts of another person, you should not be accountable!
Not only is the cost of a funeral expensive, but you also deserve emotional
damages for the pain you are currently suffering and will likely suffer
into the future.
Some of the
damages you can be awarded in a wrongful death suit include:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Mental pain and suffering
- Loss of support and services
- Loss of companionship and protection
Punitive damages (in limited cases such as
drunk driving accidents)
In addition, the estate of the deceased may additionally be entitled to
recover the loss of net earnings that would have occurred over their natural
lifespan, including interest, and medical and funeral expenses if they
apply. While no amount of financial compensation will ever bring back
the person you lost, recovering an award can help ease the burden.
