Death that is caused by the negligence, recklessness or malice of another person.
If you have lost a loved one in this way, we offer our sincere condolences. While this is an extremely traumatic time for your family, you should be made aware that you may be eligible to file a “wrongful death claim.”
A wrongful death claim can be filed by any immediate family member.
This includes spouse, child, parent or sibling, and they may be entitled to monetary compensation from the negligent party. Monetary damages can be awarded for the decedent’s medical or funeral expenses, and can also cover loss of economic support (if the decedent was the primary source of income), loss of companionship, and compensation for pain and suffering.
Schwimer Weinstein can help make this difficult time a little easier by making sure you get the monetary compensation that you are entitled to.
We can help. Contact Schwimer Weinstein for a free, no-obligation consultation.
