Should you file a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
When the negligence of another person or company leads to the death of your loved one, you may file a wrongful death action against the responsible party. An untimely loss is devastating to a family. In addition to trying to cope with your loss, you are also likely trying to determine how something like this could have happened and if the person responsible should be held accountable.
In some cases, the person or entity responsible for the death may be facing criminal charges for their actions. Regardless of the outcome of the criminal investigation, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for costs associated with the death. A wrongful death lawsuit may ease financial losses associated with the death. Surviving family members may be compensated for:
- Funeral expenses
- Grief and mental anguish
- Lost wages of the deceased
- Loss of companionship
- Punitive damages
