The primary components of wrongful death cases
Wrongful death cases are understandably emotional in nature. Aside from attaining a positive outcome in your case, an attorney’s top priority is to stand by you and support you through this difficult time for both you and those close to you.
The main factors that must be present in your case for it to constitute a wrongful death are:
- Dependence. The fatal accident must have affected people who depend on the deceased person for financial or emotional support, in addition to having injured the deceased person. The wrongful act could result from either negligence or intent.
- Statute of limitations. There is a certain amount of time within which you must file your wrongful death claim. The clock for this statute of limitations begins ticking as soon as you are made aware of the catastrophic incident. There are varying statutes of limitations depending on your case. Your attorney can provide you with further information.
How much money can my family receive?
The amount of compensation you can expect from your claim depends on factors such as the deceased person's income, medical bills and burial expenses incurred as a result of the accident. You may also receive damages in your lawsuit to help compensate you for the emotional suffering you experienced due to the death of your loved one. Working with an attorney keeps you informed of your best options related to how much compensation you should pursue.
