Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Wrongful death is a legal term which refers to situations where someone is fatally injured because of the negligence of another person or company. Wrongful death cases may come about in a number of different contexts, including car accidents, construction site accidents, and medical malpractice.

These claims are obviously emotional and difficult for the survivors. Since the person is dead, the law does its best to compensate the survivors and beneficiaries for their loss, by awarding an amount of money the loss represents including the sorrow, mental anguish and loss of companionship of the person, the expected loss in income of the person who died; the expected loss of services, protection, care, and/or assistance which the person who died provided to the survivors/beneficiaries; and the expenses for the care, treatment, and hospitalization of the person who died related to the injury resulting in death. Since some of these damages are very difficult (or impossible to calculate) they are often very high. Many wrongful death lawsuits result in seven figure awards to the survivors.
