Frequently Asked Questions about Wrongful Death Cases
What is wrongful death?
Wrongful death is a civil legal action that allows surviving family members to seek accountability and compensation when a loved one dies due to someone else's negligence. It is designed to recognize the value of the victim's life and compensate the family for its loss.
Who is eligible to bring a wrongful death claim?
Not every close relationship qualifies for eligibility to bring a wrongful death action after a fatal accident. In most cases, the personal representative of the deceased's estate is responsible for bringing the claim. This may be a spouse, child, or other family members. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help you understand your legal options and determine if you are eligible to bring a claim.
How is compensation calculated in a wrongful death case?
Putting value on human life is an impossible task. However, in a wrongful death case, the surviving family may be entitled to compensation for damages such as medical expenses, memorial and burial expenses, injury to the decedent, injury to the decedent's family, punitive damages, and economic damages. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help you measure damages and make a practical claim for compensation.
