Wrongful Death

A Wrongful Death Claim may Benefit You

Losing a loved one to an accident or to another person's reckless behavior is heartbreaking. During this time, the grief is overwhelming but if you are the spouse or child of the deceased, you have the right to file a wrongful death claim. This may sound insignificant compared to everything else on your mind but it can be very helpful for many families.

A wrongful death claim can greatly help you financially as you cope and move forward. You can recover such damages as:

  • Funeral costs
  • Medical bills
  • Lost future wages
  • Loss of companionship

A wrongful death claim can also bring a sense of closure to families.
