When the unthinkable happens and a catastrophic accident causes the death of a loved one, the results are devastating. Legal action is likely not the foremost concern that comes to mind, but the surviving loved ones may be facing a number of financial burdens due to this loss.
If negligence contributed to the death, the responsible party may be liable for the damages resulting from the incident. While it may seem futile to put a price on the loss of a loved one, certain costs may be recovered to aid those who may be struggling in the aftermath. These costs may include medical care if the deceased received treatment before passing on, funeral arrangements, and a loss of income to the family. Those facing the prospect of having lost the primary source of income for their family may be feeling overwhelmed at how to provide for their family in the future, but seeking compensation for the fate of the deceased can help to mitigate some of these concerns.
A wide range of scenarios can lead to fatal injuries, even in the most unexpected situations. Dangerous work sites may seem like the obvious source of concern for fatal injuries, but even an action as mundane as driving to the store could lead to a tragedy due to another’s negligence.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that in 2010, over 33,000 fatalities occurred in motor vehicle accidents, while over 27,000 deaths occurred through accidental falls.
Seeking a claim for compensation after the death of a loved one can be an overwhelming prospect. You may not know who is liable, how much compensation would be reasonable, or even where to begin. The complex laws surrounding wrongful death claims make the services of an experienced attorney invaluable.
