What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit is a legal claim based on an accident that results in a loss of life. If you are the spouse, parent or child of a person who passes away in an accident, you may claim compensation. The kind of legal case that you bring is called a wrongful death lawsuit. To have a wrongful death lawsuit, the accident must occur because of the negligent actions of another person or company. If your loved one was the victim of this kind of accident, you may have a wrongful death lawsuit.

What Are Examples of Wrongful Death Cases – Do I Have a Case?

You have a wrongful death case if your spouse, parent or child passes away as a victim of negligence. The legal standard is how the accident occurs. If a person or company contributes to the accident through their negligent conduct, they may have legal liability. The standard is whether the person or company is not as careful as a reasonable person should have been in the same situation.

Some examples of wrongful death cases include deaths that resulted from:

Any kind of accident resulting in death may give the surviving family the legal grounds for a wrongful death claim. The standard that must be present is a failure to act with due care and caution on the part of the responsible party. Our Colorado wrongful death attorneys can help you determine what the law has to say about your case and what you might stand to receive in compensation.

What Can I Receive in a Wrongful Death Case?

The purpose of a wrongful death case is twofold. First, it allows the surviving family to pursue justice on behalf of their loved one. A fair settlement for the victim and their grieving family. Second, a wrongful death case allows the surviving family to get the compensation that they may need. The family often relies on the victim to bring income and personal help to the family. The settlement payment you receive from your legal case can help to secure your family’s future. 

There are several types of compensation available in a wrongful death claim, including:

  • Lost income – Your loved one may have earned an income that your family relied on to live. The amount that the victim could have earned to support minor children or a spouse is a large part of any claim.
  • Help and guidance – Without your loved one contributing to the family, you may have unexpected expenses. Children may now need child care. It may become necessary to hire home maintenance or housekeeping services that used to be done by your loved one. These expenses can be a part of the claim.
  • Funeral expenses – The legal claim can include financial compensation for the deceased person’s funeral expenses.
  • Medical expenses – When a person is in an accident, they almost certainly have medical expenses. A legal claim can include compensation for medical bills.
  • Companionship and guidance – Losing a loved one in an accident is a traumatic event. Whether your loved one is a parent, child or spouse, they are no longer there to provide help, companionship, parenting to a child, assistance to a parent or support as a spouse. The personal loss that you have is a part of your legal claim.

Our Colorado wrongful death attorneys know that a wrongful death claim must be comprehensive. The other party, or their insurance company, may try to resolve the case quickly for a low amount. However, our attorneys know that wrongful death laws are complex. We want you to take all the relevant factors into account to get full compensation.
