What Is a Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death is a death that occurs due to another person or entity's negligence or wrongdoing. Wrongful death lawsuits are filed by the surviving family members of the deceased in order to seek financial compensation for their loss.
In order to file a wrongful death lawsuit, you must be a member of the decedent's family. In some cases, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the decedent's estate. This would be the case if the decedent had no surviving family members.
Who Is Considered a "Dependent" in a Wrongful Death Case?
In many wrongful death cases, the decedent is the primary breadwinner for their family. This can leave their spouse, children, and/or other dependents without a source of income. And in some cases, the decedent was the primary caretaker for a non-family member dependent who is now without care.
In these cases, the dependent may be eligible for compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. We can help you determine if you are owed compensation for the loss of your dependent's support and/or care.
What Are the Next Steps in a Wrongful Death Claim?
After losing a loved one, you may not be ready to think about filing a claim for compensation. You may not even know where to begin. At Knafo Law Offices, we can help you navigate the legal process and get you the compensation you deserve.
In a wrongful death claim, you are essentially suing the person or entity that caused the death of your loved one. If your claim is successful, you may be eligible for compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of companionship
- Punitive damages
In addition to these economic damages, you may also be eligible for compensation for the loss of your loved one's care. For example, if the decedent was a parent who cared for a child with a disability, you may be eligible for compensation for the loss of your dependent's care.
