We’re Here to Help You Seek Justice for Your Loved One

A wrongful death claim is a legal action brought by the surviving family members or representatives of a person who has died due to the wrongful or negligent act of another party. It is a civil lawsuit seeking compensation for the damages caused by the death.

Wrongful death claims typically arise in situations where the deceased person’s death was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another individual, company, or entity. Some common scenarios that may lead to wrongful death claims include car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, defective products, or acts of violence.

To pursue a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff (usually a surviving family member) must demonstrate that the death of their loved one was a result of the defendant’s wrongful conduct. This may involve gathering evidence, proving negligence or liability, and establishing the damages suffered by the surviving family members.

The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to provide compensation to the surviving family members for their losses, both economic and non-economic. This can include.

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Mental anguish
  • Related damages.
