Losing a loved one is devastating. Losing them to an accident caused by the negligence of another bring with it intense emotions and a number of complicated questions. Whether or not a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed is a question best answered by an experienced wrongful death attorney. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit serves two purposes. First, the lawsuit can ensure that the deceased’s children, spouse, and/or parents who were financially dependent on their loved one will be provided with compensation and financial support. Secondly, a wrongful death lawsuit holds the responsible party accountable for their actions and helps ensure that a similar accident isn’t repeated.
Wrongful death laws vary by state and can be complex. If you don’t file your claim within a specific time period, you risk losing your right to be compensated.
