Coping with the loss of a loved one can be one of the most trying times of your life. When your family member’s death was caused by another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, the grieving process only intensifies. During your grieving period, consideration of a wrongful death lawsuit may not seem urgent. However, wrongful death cases must be filed within a specific time period or you risk losing your right to financial compensation.
When someone dies as a result of a third-party’s negligence or intentional act, it is a wrongful death. The third party can be a driver in a car crash, a building owner responsible for dangerous conditions, the creator of a faulty product, or any person or entity responsible for a situation which caused a wrongful death. Those who were dependent on the lost loved one may be entitled to monetary damages.
While no amount of financial payment could ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, being financially secure in your future and the comfort of responsible parties being brought to justice can provide a sense of closure and security to survivors.
