Seek Legal Counsel from a Dedicated Attorney
When someone dies because of another person’s negligent actions, the survivors of that victim may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf, seek financial compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost companionship and other damages. However, before you can begin with your case, it’s important to know whether you qualify for a wrongful death award and what steps you must take to maximize your chances of recovery.

How Do Wrongful Death Claims Work?
A wrongful death claim proceeds in a similar manner to other types of personal injury cases. However, the plaintiff in such a case is a family member or someone else who suffered damage as a result of the victim’s death, rather than the victim themselves.
You are still required to prove the defendant was liable for the death of your loved one, using the same types of liability standards that exist in other personal injury cases. You can file a wrongful death case for all types of fatal accidents, from car accidents to more complicated product liability or medical malpractice cases. The defendant could be an individual person, a company or government entity—any person or party that acted negligently.
