Have you lost a loved one because of the criminal or negligent conduct of another person?
In legal terms, wrongful death is defined as the loss of a life due to the criminal or negligent conduct of another person. Each year, thousands of families mourn the wrongful death of a loved one. Death is often painful and difficult for those who are left behind. But the pain of knowing a loved one’s death could have been prevented can be devastating.
Friends and family members will want to know:
- Why did this happen to us?
- What do we do now?
- What will become of the children’s future?
- How will we take care of our expenses?
Questions following a wrongful death can leave families at a loss for how to move forward. Fortunately, you have rights and resources available to help you through this very difficult time.
Families of victims of wrongful death – spouses, children, parents – need time to grieve, but also need to deal with immediate and long-term financial matters such as funeral arrangements, bill payment, household management, and children’s schooling, among others.
To lessen the burden of these overwhelming financial obligations, families may seek justice against the negligent or reckless individuals or companies that caused the death of their loved one.
Families of wrongful death victims may be able to recover:
- The legal value of the deceased’s life
- Lost future earnings of the deceased
- Money to cover funeral expenses and medical bills
- Compensation for loss of companionship, sorrow, and grief
- Damages to punish the wrongdoer or deter future conduct
