Why file a wrongful death lawsuit?

After the loss of a loved one, the last thing on the minds of those left behind is typically money. Oftentimes, friends and family are struggling to come to terms with the loss, cope with their grief and find ways to move forward. None of this happens overnight.

However, it is important to note that during this difficult time, finances can become a growing concern. There are also other obstacles that can make recovering from a loss quite difficult that you may come up against in this situation. For these reasons, it can be wise to consider the possibility of filing a wrongful death claim.

Below are a few reasons why it can be in your best interests to consider filing a wrongful death claim after the loss of a spouse, parent, child or family member.

  1. Economic relief: As we mentioned above, money can become a problem. You may have to cover everything from funeral expenses to medical bills without the support of the decedent. Compensation from a legal claim can help you cover these and other financial damages suffered.
  2. Accountability: Holding a negligent or reckless party accountable for your loss can give you a considerable sense of justice and closure. If no one is held responsible, it can make an already tragic loss feel more senseless.
  3. Protecting others: Holding the appropriate party liable with a legal claim can also shine a spotlight on any behaviors or policies that could put others in danger. By calling them out in court filings and requiring a negligent party to address the problems, you could prevent others from suffering the same fate.

While you may not feel inclined to take legal action right away after the loss of your loved one, we encourage you to keep the option in mind. When you are ready to examine your choices, the attorneys at our firm are prepared to discuss your rights and what you may be able to expect from a wrongful death claim.
