It is devastating to lose a loved one as a result of carelessness, negligence or recklessness. Wrongful death can be defined as a negligent action that resulted in another person’s death, even if it wasn’t intentional. Some of the many circumstances which can contribute to a wrongful death are: faulty or defective products, impaired driving, reckless activities, a lack of adequate security, motor vehicle accidents, and medical malpractice.
Do not hesitate to contact one of our personal injury attorneys if you have lost a loved one due to negligence. When an individual’s death is caused by a wrongful act or omission of another, a representative of the deceased’s family may pursue a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim may include compensation for the loss of companionship, loss of financial support, loss of child care and/or loss of medical benefits. We understand that no amount of money will make up for the loss of a loved one, but financial compensation for your loss can help to provide you with financial assistance as you go forward. By holding the negligent party accountable, you may help to prevent harm from happening to others in the future while allowing yourself some closure.
