Wrongful Death Laws
When a loved one passes away, they can no longer file a legal claim to hold the negligent party liable for the harm they caused. This is now up to certain family members, which can include the surviving spouse and children, or surviving parents if there is no spouse or child.
“Wrongful death” is one caused by negligence, recklessness, or intentionally wrongful acts, and common causes of wrongful death include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Boating accidents
- Premises liability accidents
- Dangerous product accidents
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
Once we have determined that another person or company should be responsible for your loved one’s death, we can calculate the damages available to your family. These can include damages for lost financial support, lost household support, and more.
