Wrongful Death Lawsuit: Do You Have A Case?

When a loved one has suffered an unexpected death due to the negligence or willful misconduct of another person, it can leave you in a complicated and taxing legal circumstance. As emotional as it is, investigating the responsible party(ies) associated with the loss such as medical expenses, funeral costs, future financial support, loss of companionship, and lost benefits of the victim (medical insurance, pension, 401k, etc.) – can come with many difficulties. It’s critical that you speak with an accomplished wrongful death lawyer to determine if you have a case and get the money you deserve.

Most Common Causes Of Wrongful Death

  • Vehicle Accidents – Distracted drivers, drunk or impaired drivers, aggressive drivers, road construction and pedestrian fatalities
  • Medical Malpractice – Prescription error, misdiagnosis, emergency room error, surgical injury, delayed diagnosis, or even a medical equipment malfunction
  • Product Liability – Faulty design, defective manufacturing process, or failure to warn
  • Work-Related Accidents – Any death that occurs in the workplace as a result of company negligence

Wrongful Death Lawsuit: How to Get The Money You Deserve

Tragedy can strike when you least expect it. When a loved one dies due to an avoidable accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, it is known as wrongful death. The loss can be made worse by the financial hardships that an untimely death can bring. Families can suffer due to loss of income, medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, loss of household services, and the absence of the support that the parent, grandparent, or spouse provided to the loved ones. You should not have to suffer twice. If a person, business, or other entity was responsible for the wrongful death of your family member, they should ease your financial burden. It is only fair. So how can you get the maximum compensation you deserve?

Get Your Family Financial Justice

The last thing you may be thinking about is the financial ramifications of the wrongful death of your family member. However, you may incur funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of income of the deceased, and increased household expenses for services your loved one provided. A wrongful death lawyer can seek reimbursement of these expenses from the guilty party, as well as compensation for the physical and emotional pain and suffering of your family and your lost loved one. You may even be entitled to punitive damages. These awards are meant to further punish the guilty parties and deter others from committing similar offenses. These monetary awards are given to the plaintiff’s family.

Support your Wrongful Death Attorney

You need the maximum compensation allowed by law for the deceased’s medical expenses and funeral costs, as well as for compensation for loss of consortium, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and extra expenses incurred due to the loss of your beloved family member. The way to get the most from your wrongful death claim is by supporting your attorney. Supply all the evidence you can to bolster your case. Provide your wrongful death lawyer with all medical bills, pay stubs, and any other evidence that shows damages you suffered due to your loved one’s death.

Take Your Time

A wrongful death lawsuit can be a lengthy process. If you want all the money you deserve, you need to be willing to wait out the insurance company’s delay tactics. If your wrongful death lawyer thinks it is in your best interest to take your case to trial, listen to his or her advice. Your ultimate goal is to get the full and fair compensation you deserve from your wrongful death lawsuit, even if you have to wait a little longer to get it. Do not let the insurance company or the guilty party win. If your wrongful death attorney feels you have a strong case, go the extra mile to prove your case. Let a jury decide, if your lawyer recommends it. However, most cases are settled out of court, where there is less risk. Listen carefully to your wrongful death lawyer. He or she truly has your best interests at heart, and will work hard to get you the highest payout for your case possible.
