Morrow Wrongful Death Attorney
Many people experience tragic losses every day, and the Covid-19 pandemic has been a striking reminder of this. Often, the death of a loved one leaves a family wanting closure and justice, as well as facing financial losses. In some situations, there is nothing a family can do but focus on emotional healing. However, if the death happened due to the conduct of another person, family members might have the right to seek justice and recovery by filing a wrongful death claim.
Our Morrow wrongful death lawyers help families determine whether they have a wrongful death claim. Some factors we examine include the following:
- How the death happened – If the death was the result of another party’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing, you might be able to file for wrongful death. This might include car accidents, bus accidents, boating accidents, Uber or Lyft accidents, nursing home abuse or neglect, falls, and more.
- Your relation to the victim – Only very close family members can file wrongful death claims, such as the surviving spouse or children. If there is no spouse or child, the parents can file a claim. The personal representative of the deceased’s estate might also file a claim.
Once you know you are eligible to file, your attorney will need to determine the damages you can seek. This can include for the lost financial and household support of the deceased, funeral and burial costs, and lost love, care, and companionship.
