What is a Wrongful Death Case?
This is a lawsuit family members can file when they lose a loved one due to an accident or intentional act. The law allows you to seek compensation if you lost your:
As a civil action, a wrongful death claim seeks compensation from the person who is responsible for the death. A wrongful death action could be based on a crime, like homicide, or simply an accident caused by negligence. Most of our wrongful death clients lost a loved one in a car wreck, truck accident, pedestrian accident or similar event. These are unintentional deaths where the defendant failed to act with sufficient care, so they are liable.
We usually seek compensation for all damages, such as:
Mental anguish—you deserve compensation for your grief and emotional suffering experienced in the aftermath of the tragedy.
- Loss of companionship, support, and love—money cannot remotely make up for the loss of your relationship, but it’s what we can get in a wrongful death claim.
- Loss of income or inheritance—your loved one could have worked for years or decades had they lived, and you deserve compensation for losing out on this income.
- Loss of household services—family members often provide vital services, like household chores or yard work, as well as childcare or elder care.
It’s difficult to estimate how much you might receive. Some factors include your loved one’s age, as well as their profession before death. We also need to account for other factors, such as the defendant’s ability to pay a settlement. Some defendants rely entirely on insurance to pay compensation.
You might also bring a survival action. This is like a wrongful death suit, but it compensates the estate for any losses your loved one suffered before death. Typically, we seek money for hospital bills, conscious pain and suffering, and lost income. Any money gets distributed according to your loved one’s will.
