When a fatal accident claims the life of a family member, it can be difficult to know where to turn. In many cases, the emotional pain of the accident is compounded by the stress and uncertainty that comes after — often, a fatal accident comes with significant medical bills and funeral expenses. If the victim was employed, then the family suffers a total loss of his or her future wages, casting the family's long-term financial futures into doubt.
There is hope, however. In cases where the accident was the fault of another party, the victim's family can recover compensation for their financial and emotional losses.
By filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the victim's family can often be repaid for the medical bills, final expenses and lost wages that are associated with the accident. Emotional distress is also considered; victims' families can recover pain and suffering damages as part of their wrongful death outcome.
Often, wrongful death cases are the result of car accidents or other motor vehicle collisions. Many different incidents, however, can result in liability for a wrongful death suit. Whether it's a motor vehicle accident or failure to hire adequate security at a concert, the negligent party will be held liable to pay compensation to the victim's family.
