Understanding Your Options For Legal Action Following A Loved One's Death

What many people think of as a wrongful death lawsuit is frequently a combination of legal actions. One is maintained on behalf of the deceased individual, while additional actions may be brought on behalf of the deceased's spouse, children or even parents.

Compensation that family members may be able to receive from a negligent party includes:

  • For children, loss of guidance and support of a parent
  • For spouses, loss of consortium (companionship)
  • For next of kin, expenses related to the loved one's death, including funeral expenses
  • Loss of the deceased's future income

Our firm is experienced in handling probate matters, establishing trusts and other structured funding mechanisms to ensure that family members receive the maximum benefit that these forms of compensation are intended to provide. Throughout the process, we also remain mindful of our clients' needs and approach each case with sympathy and compassion.
