Wrongful Death Claims

Nothing can heal the pain of losing a loved one. However, getting justice in their name is a small victory. 

If your family member was killed due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim in their name. This type of lawsuit (or legal claim) is called  “wrongful death” case. Wrongful death cases can be challenging for various reasons. For one, the prime witness is now deceased, which can lead to difficulties in proving a sequence of events. Additionally, wrongful death cases typically require expert witnesses (such as economists) to prove a person’s lost earning capacity and other damages. 

Wrongful death cases also present challenges because of their high monetary “value.” Insurance coverage may be insufficient, and creative avenues must be explored to achieve adequate compensation. Furthermore, an insurance company or attorney is sure to devote substantial resources towards defending a wrongful death lawsuit given the stakes.
