If a loved one in your family has died due to another’s negligence, you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim or lawsuit, and survivors may be entitled to compensation. Thousands of people become a victim of wrongful death in the United States each year, with the result being that their families suffer pain and grief, financial loss, or the loss of a child, or family bread winner. Surviving dependents or beneficiaries of the decedent may be entitled to monetary compensation for damages caused due to the death of the victim.
A wrongful death attorney must collect evidence, interview witnesses, and preserve evidence in order to be prepared to prove that the defendant was responsible for a death. Wrongful death can result from accidents, car accidents, slip and fall accidents, truck accidents, airplane accidents, industrial accidents, exposure to hazardous conditions, and any number of other negligent acts.
A wrongful death attorney can help you bring a wrongful death claim or file a lawsuit seeking monetary compensation to pay medical bills, replace lost wages, meet funeral and burial expenses, and enable the family to find a stable source of income. It is very important for you to have a wrongful death attorney before you agree to any settlement with an insurance company for your loved one’s wrongful death.
