How Does A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Work?
When a person dies because of the negligence or intentional act of another party, the family of the deceased can initiate legal action to obtain compensation and justice for the loss of their loved one. When a person dies in a workplace accident, the family may claim workers’ compensation death benefits and may be able to obtain additional compensation through a third-party claim.
When you choose Parker & Frey PLLC to handle your case, we will undertake a comprehensive legal effort to document the negligence of all responsible parties and obtain maximum compensation for you.
Legally speaking, we will be representing the estate of the deceased. But in practical terms, that means working on behalf of your family and other estate beneficiaries to obtain the best possible settlement or jury award. We will work closely with you and other relatives to understand the role your loved one played in the life of your family so that we can determine the full value of what you have lost.
In a wrongful death case, the beneficiaries of the estate may be entitled to:
- Medical costs prior to death
- Lost income the deceased would have earned had he or she lived
- Funeral costs
- Pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death
- Noneconomic losses such as loss of consortium and loss of companionship
Parker & Frey PLLC will be your strong advocate, working tirelessly to obtain results for you.
