What is Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death action arises when a person is killed as the result of negligence, product liability, or malice on the part of another person. Negligence might occur in a situation like an automobile accident, an accident at a workplace, or medical malpractice. The manufacturer of dangerous products might be strictly liable for deaths caused by faulty or unreasonably dangerous products, such as an unsafe automobile or drugs with dangerous side effects.
Filing A Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Families of the victim often feel pursuing legal action will only increase their feelings of distress. Some families do not immediately realize the impact a death can have on their lives, so contacting a wrongful death attorney is always a good idea. Our attorneys understand the delicacy of these types of lawsuits and will try to resolve it as quickly as possible in a sensitive, tactful manner.
The goal of the lawsuit is to recover the expenses associated to the death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship, and other factors that will increase the burden on the family already suffering a grave loss. Since all lawsuits will differ, we can help you determine what compensation each family member can seek based on the relationship between the victim and the individual wrongful death survivor.
