According to All Law, wrongful death cases are the results of negligence or intentional harm. Wrongful death claims allow the estate of the deceased person to file a lawsuit against the party who is legally liable for the death.
Wrongful death cases are devastating for the loved ones left behind to grieve. But tragically, things can get even worse.
Other Parties Will Try to Take Advantage of You
Insurance companies often try to trick you into accepting a settlement amount that is much lower than you deserve. They make it seem generous and the best available offer. They take advantage of your stress and grief and try to convince to settle and avoid the complications of court. But don’t fall for this. Consult your attorney so that you can negotiate the full compensation that you’re entitled to. Additionally, The American Bar Association warns that in some wrongful death cases, loved ones of victims run into trouble with Medicaid unfairly depleting funds.
Additionally, the party at fault will probably hire their own lawyer who will try to claim that you deserve less compensation or none at all.
You Have Every Reason to Pursue Compensation
In a wrongful death case, you might face costs for medical expenses, funeral expenses, and more. To make matters more complicated, your family might have lost the primary breadwinner of your household.
Depending on your case, you may also be able to collect additional damages for your pain and suffering resulting from the sudden loss of your loved one, including loss of companionship, mental anguish from the loss, and even damages for pain and suffering your loved one endured before passing away.
