Do I Qualify For a Wrongful Death Claim?

The loss of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences that we go through in life. Grief and loss can be very overwhelming. When loved ones pass away as a result of an accident, many family and friends look for answers as to why the accident occurred and if someone is responsible for what happened.

While we know that nothing will ever truly compensate for the loss of a loved one, filing a claim and receiving a settlement can help provide for the needs of your family and prevent a similar mistake from happening again in the future. If you are thinking of pursuing a wrongful death claim, there are a few elements that must be present, including:

  • Death of a loved one.
  • Negligence or intent to cause harm.
  • Survival of a family member or beneficiary.
  • Appointment of a personal representative for the decedent’s estate.
