Wrongful Death Claims For Affected Next-Of-Kin After A Fatal Crash
Losing a loved one anytime is disorienting, and when the cause of death is a car wreck or another incident involving someone else’s negligence, a family’s losses can be extra difficult. A spouse, parents, children and other close family members must suddenly grapple with losses and liabilities, including:
- Final medical expenses
- The loss of income that the deceased person previously contributed
- The loss of love and companionship
- Loss of a deceased parent’s nurturing of minor children
- The loss of the decedent’s practical services in their household
When negligence can be proven, a wrongful death claim or lawsuit can help bring compensation to a family. Eligibility to pursue a wrongful death case usually belongs, in order or priority, to:
- A spouse
- Minor children
- The executor of the person’s estate
