Donít Become the Second Victim of the Death of a Loved One

No matter the circumstances, losing a loved one is perhaps the most difficult situation that many of us will experience in our lifetimes. That terrible loss is made infinitely more bitter when the deceased died unnecessarily, or if someone else is clearly culpable for the death. For many years, there was no option for the survivors, as any legal claim was thought to die with the decedent. In the interest of fairness, however, all 50 states have by now enacted wrongful death statutes intended to address such tragic situations. Legally, wrongful death is defined as “death caused by the fault of another.” Examples of situations in which wrongful death can occur include drunk driving, the manufacture and distribution of a defective product, building an unstable structure, or failure to diagnose a clearly obvious fatal disease. If you suspect that a recently departed loved one died under such circumstances, fill out the form below and let our consultants review and analyze your situation. We’re on-call to answer all your questions and help you get the justice you seek.

Let a Wrongful Death Attorney Help You Sort Out Your Claim

Most likely, you will be referred to a wrongful death attorney, who will investigate the circumstances of your claim and, if appropriate, help you file a complaint and see it through to the end. It is important to know that every state has a different statute of limitations, the amount of time during which you can file a claim, which usually begins at the time of death and extends for a year or more. Therefore, despite your grief, it is critical that you get in touch with a wrongful death attorney before too much time passes and you lose your right to make a claim altogether. In certain cases, if the true cause of death is discovered well after the death and wrongful death is suspected, the statute of limitations may be extended, but the importance of immediate contact with an attorney cannot be over-stressed.

As with any legal complaint, you may face any number of obstacles along your way. Common problems can be pre-empted by the simple honesty. If there is any inaccuracy in the decedent’s life insurance policy – for example, a smoker claimed that he or she didn’t smoke, or if the policyholder was older than he or she claimed when the form was filled out, the claim may be thrown out. Other, less common problems may occur, which is why it is crucial that you establish a trusting relationship with your wrongful death attorney. Typical types of damages you may recover are medical and funeral expenses, loss of the decedents’ anticipated future earnings, loss of medical and pension benefits, loss of inheritance, compensation for pain and mental anguish, loss of care for survivors, and general and punitive damages. If you believe a loved one has died under circumstances that could have been prevented, contact a wrongful death attorney today. The system is on your side and is ready and waiting to help.
