What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
What Are Examples of Wrongful Death Cases – Do I Have a Case?
Some examples of wrongful death cases include deaths that resulted from:
- Car accidents

- Motorcycle crashes
- Birth injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Slip and falls
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents

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?
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.
