Could A Wrongful Death Claim Be A Good Choice?

Losing a loved one because of another person or entity can be one of the most painful experiences in a person's life. Following a fatal accident, families may not think immediately about legal action, choosing instead to focus on the grieving process. Pursuing legal action in the form of a wrongful death claim may be a wise decision though.

A lawyer from MetroLaw.Com can discuss with you the benefits of pursuing a wrongful death claim. We ease our clients through the process so they can focus on their emotional health while we handle legal matters.

What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death refers to a death that has been caused by the fault of another person — for example, deaths caused by drunk driving, medical malpractice or defective products.

Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed by family members or beneficiaries. Damages that may be recovered include:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Lost benefits such as insurance
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Pain, suffering or mental anguish suffered by the survivors
  • Loss of companionship, care or protection
  • Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers
