We Help Families Rebuild After Wrongful Deaths
When an individual dies due to the negligence of another person or entity, the survivor(s) may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the alleged perpetrator. These types of cases range from fatal car crashes caused by reckless drivers to medical malpractice.
Individuals directly affected by the loss of the deceased may be eligible for economic and noneconomic compensation. Economic compensation includes loss of wages for the past and future of economic support that would otherwise be provided by the deceased, funeral and burial expenses, and the dollar value of lost household services. Noneconomic forms of compensation include loss of companionship, moral support, affection, love, loss of guidance and mentorship. The type of compensation you may receive depends on your case.
An Experienced Litigation Team Can Help You Recover Compensation To Take Care Of Your Family
When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, only individuals who are directly affected (immediate family members, life partners, financial dependents, assumed partners and so on) must file the wrongful death claim. The directly affected members are called “proper survivors.” They are the people that directly deal with the unfortunate consequences of the tragic event.
There are special rules and laws governing wrongful death cases in all 50 states, and they vary from state to state. This is why contacting an experienced New Port Richey accident lawyer at our law firm is advisable.
