Wrongful death is a death caused by the negligence of another person. According to the CDC, unintentional injury is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. The term negligence in this definition refers to incompetence, failure to act, or carelessness. In the case of wrongful death, the friends or family members of the victim can file for a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of the deceased.

After all, sudden death can come as quite a shock and may leave behind substantial medical expenses and income losses. Family members or those connected to the deceased's estate should file a claim as soon as possible to help cover those expenses, along with any pain and suffering.

If You Want to File for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Loved ones of the victim can file for a wrongful death lawsuit depending on their relations with the victim. Typically, spouses may file a lawsuit. If the departed was unmarried, children might file a claim. If the victim did not have children or a spouse, the parents could make a claim. If these various parties cannot submit the claim, the administrator in charge of the victim's estate can file for a wrongful death lawsuit.

Talk to a Lawyer

Don't hesitate to make an appointment with a lawyer if you are interested in filing a wrongful death lawsuit. A lawyer will be able to collect evidence, complete paperwork, construct a strong case, explain the law to you, and help ease any anxiety you may feel about the case.

Don't wait to get justice for your case. If your loved one was the victim of wrongful death, you deserve justice. Be sure to file your lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires.

How Long Can a Wrongful Death Case Last?

Most wrongful death cases are ultimately settled outside of court. However, in some cases, the wrongful death suit may last for several years. If you are committed to pursuing this suit, be sure that you will be willing to see the case through.

What Can a Wrongful Death Case Cost?

The cost of a wrongful death suit is entirely dependent on the legal aid you retain. In most cases, your lawyer will not collect if you lose the case. If you win your lawsuit, your lawyer will take a percentage of your claim as legal fees.

There is no quick solution to dealing with all of the loss and pain of wrongful death. If you or someone you know is searching for a way to find justice, be sure to contact a wrongful death attorney for help through this challenging time.
