“We bereaved are not alone. We belong to the largest company in all the world–the company of those who have known suffering.”
Losing a loved one to illness is hard; losing a loved one because of another’s actions or inaction is significantly more difficult. Families who have had a loved one murdered, die as a result of a drunk driving accident, or lose their lives in the workplace because of poor safety standards have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit or a claim for death benefits.
If you believe your loved one’s death is a result of negligence or a deliberate act, these are situations where you should contact a personal injury attorney immediately to find out what your rights are.
Wrongful death cases are different than personal injury cases in more ways than just the obvious. In fact, when we see tragedies that lead to wrongful death claims, we are frequently asked the same questions.
