What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

by actuate | October 21st, 2019

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we’re here to help people who are suffering after the negligence of others causes serious accidents and injuries. Although most of our work involves directly helping victims, sometimes accidents are serious enough to be fatal. And when that happens, our attention turns to helping the surviving loved ones via wrongful death claims.

Just as injured victims can file compensation claims after auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other types of accidents, the surviving family members of people who died due to other people’s and parties’ negligence can also file compensation claims. People who file wrongful death claims may be eligible to receive a variety of compensation, including money for medical bills, lost wages, lost consortium, funeral expenses, and more.

Wrongful death claims are often complex, and more than one party may be at fault depending on the cause of death. That’s why it’s important for surviving family members to get an experienced Norfolk wrongful death lawyer on their side as soon as possible. Wrongful death claims require plenty of evidence, and evidence can quickly disappear in a matter of weeks or even days.

If you lost a loved one in an accident that wasn’t their fault, you shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for any incurred expenses or deal with lost income for years to come. We believe that you should be fairly compensated for what you’ve gone through, and we’re here to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.
