Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is the result of an individual's negligence that leads to another individual's untimely death.  A wrongful death case may arise in a number of different contexts, including car accidents, construction site accidents, swimming pool accidents and medical malpractice.

The goal of a wrongful death case is to get compensation to the survivors and beneficiaries for their loss.

The following types of damages are considered in a wrongful death case:
  1. Sorrow, mental anguish, including loss of companionship, comfort and guidance;
  2. The expected loss in income of the person who died;
  3. The expected loss of services, protection, care, and/or assistance which the person who died provided to the survivors/beneficiaries;
  4. Expenses for the care, treatment, and hospitalization of the person who died related to the injury resulting in death.

In times of grief, it is obviously difficult for family members to understand the importance of a prompt investigation of the circumstances of the death, preservation of evidence and identification of responsible parties. However it is pertinent that you contact an attorney as soon as possible as not to delay the recovery process.

If someone you love died due to someone else's negligence, you may have a valid claim for those injuries.  Contact the law offices of GarberLegal to learn more about your legal rights and options.
