A wrongful death has many repercussionsThe death of a spouse, family member, child or other loved one is one of the most difficult experiences anyone can face. The extreme sadness associated with this type of loss is compounded when you believe that your loved one’s death was preventable, that it was due to a lack of care or negligence on the part of someone else.

Who Can Make a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death claims differ from typical personal injury claims because it is the family, rather than the individual who was injured, making the claim. The types of damages awarded are thus different as well; compensation is not based on elements like pain and suffering. Rather, wrongful death claims are intended to address the financial and emotional harms suffered by the surviving family members.

Wrongful death claims can stem from a variety of scenarios, including fatal car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, constructions accidents, reactions to medications, and attacks by animals. In all of these circumstances, if the situations resulted from the negligence of another party, then a wrongful death claim may exist.

Statutes define both the period of time during which these types of claims can be brought, as well as who is eligible to bring such claims. If you believe that you may be entitled to make a wrongful death claim, then it is very important that you speak with an attorney to determine your rights and any time limits which may be applicable.
