Coping with the loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person has to deal with. When such a death was caused by the negligence of another person, justice is required to hold the wrongdoer(s) accountable.
When someone passes away due to the negligent, willful, or wrongful act, omission or fault of another, a wrongful death action can be started. Such cases are meant to compensate those family members left behind after a fatal accident.
One may receive damages from wrongful death claims for the money earned by the deceased, loss of companionship, the savings of the deceased, the degree to which survivors were financially dependent on the deceased, and expenses incurred by survivors for medical and funeral costs.
