When a loved one is lost unnecessarily due to the negligence, malice, or recklessness of another, the frustration and anger can be overwhelming.

Financial Entitlements in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

While nothing but time, strength, and the comfort and love of friends and family can ease the emotional pain of dealing with the untimely loss of a loved one, our wrongful death attorneys can file legal action taken against the responsible party to help relieve the financial and logistical burden left behind. In our legal system, the immediate family of the decedent is entitled to seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit for the financial losses that they suffered upon the death of their loved one. These losses include the cost of medical and funeral expenses, as well as the loss of support, services, and prospect of inheritance.
