One of the most painful things in life is losing a beloved father, mother, spouse, child, brother or sister due to the negligence or misconduct of another. Although a wrongful death claim will never compensate for the loss of a loved one, it can provide financial security to a family that has lost its breadwinner ― particularly when the family is saddled with medical and funeral expenses.
Wrongful deaths occur in a variety of circumstances including:
- Medical malpractice;
- Products liability;
- Vehicular accidents;
- Construction accidents; and
- Property defects.
As a close relative, you may be entitled to compensation for economic and noneconomic damages including:
- Physical pain of the deceased prior to death;
- Loss of future wages and financial support;
- Loss of companionship of a loved one;
- Loss of parental guidance to a child;
- Medical expenses prior to death; and
- Funeral expenses.
