When someone is killed negligently by another person, the close relatives of the deceased may bring a wrongful death claim.
The law recognizes the grievous loss that the taking of a life bestows on those close to the victim. Perhaps a parent of young children is killed. If the family is unable to recover, their future could be at risk.
Considering a civil lawsuit in the days after the passing of a loved one can seem insensitive and quite possibly overwhelming. However, it's important to talk with a lawyer as soon as you feel you are able. Your family may be entitled to a recovery to pay for the loss of a lifetime of income, medical fees, and end-of-life costs.
As difficult as it is, it is critically important to talk to a member of our team if a loved one was killed by someone else's wrongful conduct.
