Losing someone you care about, regardless of the cause, is one of the most painful things that a person can experience. Suddenly, there’s a hole in your life where a person you cherished once was. It can feel all the more unbearable knowing that this tragedy was the result of someone else’s negligence and could have been avoided.
While it won’t return your loved one to you if you choose to file a wrongful death suit, you can help to ensure that no one else suffers the fate of your friend or family member. You can also receive financial compensation to cover unexpected expenses during this difficult time.
At Fischer Redavid PLLC, we’re focused on ensuring you have a strong wrongful death claim before you take your claim to court. Know that you don’t have to navigate this terrible time alone.
Wrongful death includes claims where an individual or entity causes a death through negligence, criminal activity, or a wrongful act. State laws determine the specifics, but a wrongful death claim results from a death that could have been avoided if the other party had exercised the standard of care people are expected to maintain.
Common causes of wrongful death include but are not limited to:
If you are unsure if your loved one’s death was the result of a wrongful act or negligence, it is typically a good idea to check in with reliable legal counsel to explore your options.
It is important to provide as much documentation as you can when filing any sort of lawsuit. For wrongful death cases, being thorough is vital.
Documentation that would be valuable to provide includes but is not limited to:
If you have a form of evidence or documentation that you are unsure of, it is always better to bring it to your attorney instead of letting it sit and gather dust. Even if you don’t see where it fits in, it may prove to be valuable in getting justice for your loved one.
After dealing with the aftermath of such a devastating loss, it can feel impossible to move forward. Know that you don’t have to do it all by yourself. Your lawyer can provide legal resources available to help you obtain justice, compensation, and hopefully a little bit of closure.
