Wrongful Death

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another, you may be entitled to receive compensation through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim is frequently brought by a spouse, child, or parent of the decedent.

Here are some of the common causes of wrongful death:

  • Motor vehicle wrecks
  • Defective products
  • Nursing home neglect or abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional or psychological abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Abandonment
  • Premises liability incidents, including slip-and-fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Failure to administer anesthesia properly
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
  • Failure to treat properly
  • Errors in medication
  • Birth injury
  • Surgical mistakes

Damages You Could Recover

Every case is different, and your potential settlement or court-award will depend on the specific losses your loved one’s passing brings about.

You may be able to recover compensation for the following losses:

  • Your loved one’s medical costs, including surgery, treatment, an ambulance ride, hospital stay, physical therapy, prescriptions, etc.
  • Your loved one’s physical pain and suffering
  • Your mental anguish
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of your loved one’s income
  • Your lost wages if you had to take time off to care for your loved one
  • The income your loved one would have provided
