What are the compensation options available to you in the event of a wrongful death?
In the case of a wrongful death, the family of the deceased can stake a claim to recover damages resulting from the person’s death. The damages you can claim are;
- Funeral expenses
- The cost of caring for the deceased from the time of injury until death
- The cost of travelling to visit the deceased during treatment
- The loss of income due to caring for the deceased or loss of income that the deceased would have provided
- Compensation for the loss of companionship and guidance
Remember that you have to file the case within two years from the time of death else you could risk your case getting rejected.
What can you do to claim the best compensation for a wrongful death?
The first step is to choose the best wrongful death lawyer to represent you. The lawyer should have solid experience in dealing with wrongful death cases. Your lawyer will take care of the necessary documentation and testimonials to prove your case to the court. In cases like these, a good wrongful death lawyer will be aware of all the laws regarding the benefits extended to the family of the deceased so that the insurance companies don’t trick you into settling for an unfairly small amount.
The need for the best lawyer to argue your cases increases when the cause of death is the negligence of a third party. Here the third party will try to get your claim disproved because they would face legal consequences otherwise. With an expert lawyer representing you, the defendant or insurance company lawyers will realize that they can’t use bullying tactics but will have to arrive at a fair settlement.
