The loss of a family member following an accident is devastating. If you have lost a family member as a result of an accident that was caused by a third party’s negligence, you can seek compensation for loss of financial support and for the loss of care, guidance and companionship of the family member. Wrongful death is a type of claim that family members of a deceased person can bring if the individual died as a result of negligent or reckless actions of another person, whether intentional or unintentional (the individual’s death was not cause by their own actions) and if the family member (s) have suffered losses that can be measured, such as financial losses. Who can make a wrongful death claim? A parent, spouse, child, grandparent or sibling can make a wrongful death claim for the loss of a family member. A wrongful death can occur as a result of a car accident which includes pedestrian accidents, bicycle or motorcycle accidents, as a result of workplace accident, a medical malpractice claim or as a result of defective products. If you have suffered the loss of a family member due to the negligence of another, it is important that you consult a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that a proper liability investigation is completed as soon as possible to prove the at fault party’s negligence and to find out how the accident happened. A lawyer can explain to you how long you have to file a claim.
