Warner Robins Wrongful Death Attorney
When the unthinkable happens, and you learn you lost a close family member, it can be a huge emotional loss. If you learn that their death was preventable and happened due to the actions of others, it can be even more difficult. In this situation, the law allows you to seek justice and financial recovery by filing a wrongful death claim. Anyone who believes they might have a possible case should discuss the matter with a Warner Robins wrongful death lawyer right away.
Seeking Compensation for Wrongful Death
Wrongful deaths occur due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others, and there are many incidents that fall into this category. These can include fatal:
- Car accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Falls or other premises accidents
- Accidents due to defective products
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Bus accidents
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
Whether someone looked at a text, allowed hazards at a business, or intentionally took a life, the parties responsible for the fatal incident should also be responsible for the family’s losses.
Only very close family members have the right to file this claim, such as surviving spouses and children. If there is no spouse or child, then parents might file a claim. The personal representative of the estate may file a claim if there are no qualifying family members.
Wrongful death claims are separate from criminal cases, and they focus on providing relief to the family. Nothing can bring back your loved one, but financial recovery and a sense of justice can make moving forward somewhat easier.
