What is a wrongful death claim?
A wrongful death claim is most commonly filed by the parents, children, a spouse, or partner of a individual who lost their life as a result of another person’s wrongdoing, misconduct, or negligence. This claim is often linked to a personal injury from a car accident, workplace injury, medical malpractice, and so forth. A settlement negotiated by a wrongful death lawyer may cover financial losses that are associated with the death. These could include but are not limited to:
- Medical bills that occurred from the accident and before the death;
- Funeral and burial costs;
- Emotional and mental anguish;
- The expected loss of earning capacity and future earnings;
- The expected loss of services, companionship, and personal care;
- Loss of inheritance;
- Loss of medical benefits;
- General damages.
Depending on the state you are in, punitive damages may not legally be able to be included in a claim. When punitive damages are allowable, a wrongful death lawyer must be able to prove the defendant’s actions were malicious or intentional at the time of death.
Filing Your Claim in Time
Although this might be a very emotional time for you and the surviving family members, there is a statute of limitations for discovery and negligence- two (2) years from the date of death rather than the four (4) years for other negligence cases. It is prudent that you file a claim as quickly as possible. This is because the statutory time period is not long. With a few exceptions, if the time limit has passed, a claim will become forever barred. A wrongful death lawyer can clarify how the statutes will apply to your situation. Locals turn to Leslie Duberstein Glenn for advice and representation in wrongful death cases.
