Losing a loved one is never easy; however, the pain is often accompanied by anger and resentment when you lose someone because of someone else’s actions. A Wrongful Death occurs because of negligence, misconduct or recklessness by another person or entity. The decedents spouse, children or parents can bring a Wrongful Death Action and if damages are awarded, they belong to the party who brought the action. The decedent’s estate can bring an action for pain and suffering the decedent went through before their actual death. Damages in a Wrongful Death action can include the pain and suffering, loss of support, services, and inheritance.
Wrongful Death claim may arise in the following situations: automobile accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical negligence, nursing home negligence, products liability, construction accidents, explosions, fires, fraternity hazing, swimming pool accidents and many more.
Often, losing a loved one can have many other serious repercussions in your life. What if your spouse/parent has been killed and you were financially dependant on him or her? Will you still be able to afford your home if you have lost the second income? Will you have to move? How will you work and take care of the kids?
