What the law calls wrongful death are actions arising of the many types of accidents which result in the victim’s loss of life. This horrible tragedy can be caused by a car accident, fall from a ladder or scaffold, fall from a building under construction or renovation, medical malpractice, being run over by a car or in too many other ways to enumerate. But all of these accidents can result in a wrongful death claim or lawsuit.
Unfortunately, one of the only ways to get through this tragedy is by bringing a claim on behalf of the victim’s family which may be entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved one. In the time of grief, the family has all kinds of needs, especially emotional and financial. An experienced professional and sensitive lawyer can help with both of these needs by bringing a claim for wrongful death.
Many families understandably have overwhelming difficulty dealing with this kind of loss, which is almost always sudden and unexpected. However, it is important to recognize that while grieving, financial pressures can build up quickly. This is why it is important to find out what your rights are as quickly as emotionally feasible and consult with a kind and experienced lawyer.
