Not every fatal accident leads to a wrongful death claim. Surviving family members will only have the right to file if someone else’s neglect, default, or wrongful act caused the death. A car crash, for example, could lead to a wrongful death claim if the other driver was operating under the influence of alcohol. If you suspect the fault of someone else in causing or contributing to your loved one’s death, contact an attorney for a free overview of your case. If you do have the elements of a claim, a lawyer can help you pursue maximum compensation for you and your loved one’s damages.
The three reasons we most often hear from clients for bringing wrongful death claims are for justice, public safety, and financial compensation. A successful claim could bring justice for your loved one by holding the at-fault party accountable for his or her actions. You and your attorney can be your loved one’s voice in court, standing up for what is right and seeking accountability for wrongful or negligent acts.
Filing a wrongful death claim could also improve public safety in Glendale. Holding an individual or company liable for the fatal accident could force that party to change the way it operates, potentially protecting others from the same fate as your loved one. Finally, filing a wrongful death claim could compensate surviving loved ones and the deceased person’s estate for damages the accident caused.
A successful insurance claim or lawsuit after a family member’s death could provide compensation for related medical bills, funeral and burial costs, pain and suffering (both yours and that of your loved one), lost earnings, loss of consortium, and lost household services. The total value of your claim will depend on the damages suffered and several other factors.
