Losing a loved one is emotionally draining during any part of the year, but it seems like the impact is greater when the holidays are near. For the men and women who have lost someone they love during this part of the year, it might be very painful to think about having to navigate these special days so close to the death.
We understand that you might feel hurt and angry that your loved one died. You might not be able to handle the stress that has come into your life because of the unexpected death. We are here to help you determine what types of legal actions you can take to seek justice for your loved one's death.
Filing a wrongful death lawsuit is one option that you have if the death was caused intentionally, recklessly or negligently by another person. You can turn to the liable parties and demand monetary compensation for the loss. One of the things that you will have to do is to determine the amounts that you need to seek for damages. This isn't always easy, especially when the person who died was a child or an elderly person.
We can't bring your loved one back to you, but we can help you ensure that the death wasn't in vain. By holding the liable party accountable, you are letting that person know that his or her actions were unacceptable and that he or she needs to avoid doing the same thing again.
You might feel like you can't handle anything else on your plate right now. While this is understandable, you need to consider seeking compensation carefully. If you wait too long to file your claim, you might lose the option since there are time limits in these cases.
