Far-Reaching Effects of Wrongful Death
If your loved one’s death was the result of negligence or misconduct by another party, such as an individual or corporation, immediate family members are entitled to compensation. Wrongful death claims can also be filed for murder when criminal action against a defendant fails. Wrongful death can occur under a wide range of circumstances, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Work accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective products
- Unsafe medications
The death of a loved one can cause extreme financial and emotional hardship for the victim’s survivors. Family members typically take on the deceased’s debt, including any medical bills that resulted from the fatal injury. Loved ones must also gather the funds for a funeral, adding to the economic hardship they are experiencing. Dependents, such as a spouse or children, also typically lose the income and financial stability provided by the victim.
If your loved one’s death was the result of negligence or misconduct by another party, such as an individual or corporation, immediate family members are entitled to compensation.
