Common grounds for a wrongful death claim include accidental death caused by automobile negligence, medical malpractice, a work related death, or death caused by an unlawful act during the commission of a crime. The premise behind a wrongful death claim is to show that your loved one lost their life due to the negligence or deliberate act of another and as a result, the family members and dependents have been directly impacted, both emotionally and financially.
If you are dealing with the accidental or wrongful death of a loved one due to the negligence or deliberate acts of others, The Reese Law Firm is here for you. You have the right to make sure that the party responsible for the death of your loved is held accountable for his/her actions.
Although financial compensation will not replace the loss of your loved one, you have the right – in accordance with the laws of the state in which the death occurred – to full compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses, loss of support and services, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. Individuals who are dependent on their loved one for support and maintenance and immediate family members, which include the deceased's parents, spouse, and children, are eligible to file an action against the individual or company responsible for the death of their loved one. Under some circumstances, other family members may be permitted to bring an action on behalf of your loved one.
The Reese Law Firm is prepared to handle the following accidental and wrongful death cases:
All states have statutes that dictate how long you can wait before you file a wrongful death claim. If your claim is not filed within your states’ specified statute of limitations, then you will be forever barred from filing a claim in the future. Therefore, it is important to seek legal assistance immediately in order to understand your legal rights and determine if you should pursue a wrongful death claim.
