What Makes it a Wrongful Death?
When a family member passes away from natural causes, say from old age, it is sometimes easier to accept. If your family member passed at the fault of someone else, however, you may be left desiring closure or even justice. In these cases, it’s best to seek guidance from an experienced lawyer.
What constitutes “wrongful death”? There are many types, including:
- Accidents (e.g. vehicular)
- Medical malpractice
- The negligence of another
- Intentional homicide
Filing Your Wrongful Death Lawsuit
The emotional pain of losing a loved one is a great hardship on its own. However, when you add funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, or even a gap in shared income that a loved one may leave behind, these hardships are even greater.
In filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you seek a settlement that is meant to abate or erase some of these additional financial hardships. Depending on the size of the settlement, the burial costs and medical bills may be completely covered.
It’s impossible to place a value on a human life, especially one so cherished. The settlement is not meant to replace a loved one, but to ease the financial burdens of their passing. With these burdens relieved, you can focus on what’s most important: The emotional wellbeing of you and your family.
