Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims require special skills to pursue because these claims are controlled by statute. In the past, a person who had been seriously injured but lived would be able to recover significant compensation for his or her economic or non-economic losses from the at-fault party, but no one could recover should the victim pass away due to his or her injuries. States have since passed laws to allow certain family members of people who have been wrongfully killed, or the decedent’s estate, to pursue recovery for their losses.

Wrongful death claims arise from car accidents, pedestrian accidents, truck accidents, ATV accidents, medical malpractice, motorcycle accidents, pool accidents, construction accidents, assaults, and other recreational accidents. To recover wrongful death compensation, the decedent’s estate or certain family members must prove that the incident resulted from someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct. If a loved one has died because of someone else’s fault, retaining legal counsel as soon as possible is critical.
