The death of a loved one is shocking and overwhelming. We understand that this incident can be difficult and emotionally draining, and even more so if someone you love dies prematurely due to someone else’s careless or irresponsible actions. This can lead to a wrongful death claim, which results when you, as the personal representative of the estate of the deceased person, are authorized to file a lawsuit against those responsible for your loved one’s death.
A wrongful death case can arise from a multitude of different cases, including automobile accidents, defective products, personal injuries, medical malpractice, work-related injuries, nursing home abuse, and other offenses. If you are a family member such as a spouse of the deceased, a parent who lost a child, or a child who lost a parent, you are entitled to make a wrongful death claim. In some cases, siblings or other close relatives can file a claim as well.
Although we know that you are undergoing much stress and pain, it is crucial that your wrongful death claim is filed as soon as possible. There are many reasons for this, including the assurance that all the details are examined accurately and thoroughly, all the data is maintained correctly, and all responsible participants are ascertained properly.
