Losing a loved one is one of the most tragic times for a family. Losing a loved one because someone else made a mistake can make the loss even more heartbreaking. If another person's negligence or wrongful conduct caused the loss of the loved one, the dependents, or beneficiaries may have a claim for monetary damages. Dependents can include spouses, children, parents, grandparents, and many other types of relations. Obviously no amount of money will satisfy the loss, but ensuring the security of the dependents into the future is important moving forward. Additionally, bringing the at-fault party to justice may help the family grieve. The types of damages available to the dependents vary from case to case, but typically include:
The amount of money earned by the loved one;
Medical and funeral expenses; or
The loss of advice, comfort, or companionship.
Although it is important to grieve first and foremost, the wrongful death statutes (or rules) are complicated and require that a case be brought within a specific time period. Don't wait until it is too late to get the help you deserve. Call John today for a free consultation.
