The sting from a wrongful death lasts a long time

It is difficult to accept the death of a loved one. Grief encompasses you for a long time. Naturally, a tragedy of this magnitude leaves an indelible mark on you and your family. But, in your case, that grief and even anger compound more so due to the cause of your loved one’s death: the negligence of others.

Whether your loved one died in a motor vehicle accident, due to a potential medical malpractice matter or other personal injury situation caused by the neglect and irresponsibility of others, you have every right to pursue a wrongful death legal action.

Monetary damages help with financial challenges

Understandably, money secured via a wrongful death lawsuit cannot replace your loved one, and never will. But it may soften some of the pain that comes with grief and the desire to return to the life you once had with him or her.

Financial compensation in a wrongful death action can be for:

  • Personal losses. This includes loss of companionship, personal sorrow and mental anguish for the surviving spouse along with the loss of love, guidance and inheritance for children.
  • Lost income and services. This relates to the money the decedent would have continued to contribute to the household.
  • Medical costs, including for the care of the decedent. Survivors are entitled to damages from the date of the accident/incident until their loved one’s death. This includes related hospital stays while your loved one fought for his or her life.
  • Funeral and burial expenses. This list includes costs for the funeral home, memorial services, minister fees and the death certificate.

Counseling and therapy for you and your family may help you get over the grief. Meanwhile, a wrongful death lawsuit may help you overcome some of the financial difficulties that you face now and for years to come.
