What to Do in Case of Wrongful Death
In the case of wrongful death, the family of the victim should be aware of their rights under the law. This means that there may be a right to file a lawsuit against the people responsible for their loss. Common uses for the compensation acquired through these suits include funeral expenses, medical bills, as well as “loss of consortium.” Loss of consortium means the deprivation of future affection and companionship over an untimely death.
“The aftermath of tragic accidents can make everything difficult for a family. The last thing most families want to deal with is piles of paperwork, questions from insurance companies or defense attorneys, and attempting to obtain police reports. Grieving and handling legal claims don’t exactly go hand in hand, this is why hiring an experienced attorney will ensure that your rights are recognized and that justice will be served. Having a legal advocate after such a traumatic event will provide your family the space to heal while ensuring that justice is brought for your loved one,” says Mark Sweet, a seasoned attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
