Beneficiary compensation for wrongful death

Any time families lose a loved one, the devastation can be overwhelming. Additionally, there are often tragic cases where a loved one passes away due to the negligence of another party. When this happens, families may be subject to the costly financial burdens associated with covering their loved one’s outstanding hospital bills and funeral costs. In addition, the loved one who passed away is often a provider of income that the family relies on. If the individual passed away due to the negligence of another person, it is important for the family to consider their legal options.

If the family wants to bring a wrongful death claim against the negligent party, it must be filed by the personal representative of the estate. This is often done on behalf of the individual’s surviving spouse, children, parents, or siblings, depending on the individual’s familial situation. With the help of an experienced attorney, the family may be able to recover compensation that can help with:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to the death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of income for the family
  • Pain and suffering prior to the death
  • The emotional toll placed on the family
  • The loss of a parent for any children
  • The loss of relationship and companionship for a spouse or parent
