Understanding the Applicable State Laws

Wrongful death is a unique area of law, closely related to personal injury, that allows the family of a person who has been killed in an accident to pursue compensation for the harm they have suffered, including the loss of financial support and the loss of personal companionship.

If you have lost a close family member in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, such as a truck accident or medical malpractice, you may have a valid wrongful death claim against that person or business.

Additionally, in some cases, it is possible to bring what is known as a survivor action. This action seeks compensation for any suffering the deceased person may have experienced after the accident and prior to death. A survivor action may be another way to pursue a legal claim against the responsible party.

Pursuing Your Personal Goals Through the Legal Process

Obviously, no legal action and no financial compensation can bring back a loved one who has been taken from you in an accident. However, filing a wrongful death suit can be a means of holding the responsible party or parties accountable, and the legal process may also help you get answers to your questions about the circumstances of the accident.

In many cases, the deceased person has been a major provider for his or her family, and the money damages awarded in a wrongful death case can give the family the opportunity to cope with its loss without excessive financial pressures.
