Coping with the death of a loved one is stressful. Dealing with loss can be especially difficult to accept when it results from a situation that could have been avoided. Wrongful death is death caused by the negligence, misconduct, or carelessness of another person or entity. Wrongful death actions can arise from medical malpractice, automobile accidents, nursing home abuse, drowning, shootings, airplane accidents, willful misconduct or negligence, product liability, premises liability and more.
A wrongful death lawsuit is designed to hold liable parties accountable for their actions and/or omissions and financially compensate the executor of the estate (typically the family of the deceased) for the loss of a loved one. Damages that are most often sought after in wrongful death lawsuits include compensation for:
- Funeral, burial, medical, hospital, expenses
- Pain and suffering experienced prior to death
- Losses incurred by the deceased’s family:
> Loss of wages
> Mental anguish
> Loss of financial support
> Loss of companionship
> Loss of parental guidance (in cases where deceased has children).
