Nothing can truly ever compensate for the loss of a loved one; the emotional stresses on the surviving family can result in a never-ending process of trying to heal.
When that loss is from a preventable accident or negligent circumstance, it only compounds the difficulty of that healing process. Although no amount of compensation can ever replace the loss of life, it is a necessary fact for many families who need assistance dealing with the financial consequences. It can also bring a sense that justice was obtained through the judgment of liability against the person or entity held responsible.
The most frequent causes of wrongful death include:
- Motor vehicle accidents (auto, motorcycle, truck)
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Medical malpractice and hospital errors
- Defective products
In addition to a legal action providing your family with the means to deal with the associated financial difficulties caused by a wrongful death, it should also result in protecting others from suffering the same irreparable harm.
