The loss of a loved one can be a devastating experience in any situation. However, when that death is the result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, the experience can be excruciatingly painful. In such a situation, filing a wrongful death suit can help surviving family members receive both emotional closure and financial compensation for their loss.
A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else. Many states currently have wrongful death statutes in place that compel businesses, including manufacturers, hospitals, doctors and other professionals to conduct themselves appropriately to ensure the safety of their patients, clients and customers.

Protecting Your Rights and the Rights of Your Loved One
If you’ve lost a loved one due to another party’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation to help ease the financial stress that you may be facing.
Through a wrongful death claim, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical bills incurred before your loved one passed away
- Funeral expenses
- Salary of the deceased
- Financial support you relied on from the deceased
- Grief, sorrow, loss of companionship, loss of consortium
- Pain, suffering, or disfigurement of the deceased
- Punitive damages that the deceased would have recovered if he/she had survived
Obviously, no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one, but a settlement or verdict can help ease the financial burden often left when a family member passes away.
While wrongful death suits are very complex, an attorney specializing in this area of law can help you get the compensation you deserve. At this time of grief, having an experienced, compassionate attorney on your side can ease the stress and emotional duress often caused by these types of cases.
