Wrongful Death Compensation
The death of a loved one can bring about feelings of great sadness, loneliness, and, possibly, depression. For a family member, no amount of money can replace a loved one. Despite this, a relative can still receive compensation for the family member's death. With skill and quality representation, our Wrongful Death Lawyers can obtain compensation in wrongful death cases in the form of monetary damages.
Compensation in wrongful death cases can help ease the financial hardships that surviving family members experience after a loss. In the end, financial expenses are an unfortunate reality in death cases. Some unanticipated economic costs arising from the sudden death of a loved one include:
- Medical Care Provided Before Death
- Funeral Expenses
- Loss of Family Income
- Loss of Consortium (Loss of Relationship)
Claims Involving Minor Children
When a minor (someone under 18 years of age) has a personal injury claim, in many cases, there is an extra set of procedures that apply to protect the interests of the minor. Specifically, the minor, usually through their attorney, will petition the probate court for approval of the minor settlement. This includes the amount of the settlement, the medical expenses to be paid from the settlement, the attorney's fees and costs, and the net settlement for the minor claimant. A more detailed explanation of this process is explained on our Minor Child Injury Pages.
