When a person dies due to a willful or negligent act, the family may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. They are permitted to seek rightful compensation for their loved one’s death to cover their financial losses arising from the death, in addition to other potential items of damage that depend on the specific facts of the case.
In many instances when a loved one dies, the family has not only lost the love and companionship, they have also lost a substantial source of income for the household. The affects of this loss can be financially devastating as the bills for the funeral, mortgage, rent, gas, food, insurance, and other expenses pile up.
Though it sounds dreadful, a “wrongful death lawsuit” can help a family obtain the monetary compensation for the economic damages from the loved one’s loss to ease the financial strain. Even when someone with an “average paying job” wrongfully dies before the age of 50, the amount of earnings and benefits losses can total in the millions of dollars.
At Bishop Legal, we pursue financial compensation for the deceased’s estate to help the family maintain an equivalent standard of living such as they enjoyed before the tragedy.
