A wrongful death accident occurs when a preventable death resulted from someone else’s neglience, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. The types of accidents that this type of action can fall into are very numerous. They could be any type of motor vehicle accident, pedestrian accent, bus accident, commercial truck accident, bicycle accident, motorcycle accident, or even a workplace accident.
Wrongful death lawsuits are brought by the family of the wrongful death victim for damages that the family is entitled to as a result of the loss handed to them at the hands of another individual’s negligent or illegal intentional misconduct. Wrongful death claims require particular elements to be proven:
- An individual has died;
- The death was a result of another’s negligence and/or intent to harm;
- Family members have suffered from monetary damages related to the death; and
- A personal representative has been elected to handle the deceased individual’s estate.
Establishing these elements may not always be as easy as one thinks. That is why having the proven and experienced wrongful death attorneys at The Law Collective is absolutely critical so that they can review your case for free and provide you with a free consultation. You can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to discuss your case with you at (213) 441-4000.
In addition to establishing the elements above, only particular individuals may bring a wrongful death action on behalf of their loved ones. Those include spouses or domestic partners, children, parents and siblings, and personal representatives of the deceased’s estate. Other individuals may also make a case for a wrongful death lawsuit if at the time of the individual’s death, they were financially reliant and dependent on the deceased person. This category often includes stepchildren, parents, and putative spouse or putative spouse’s children (putative spouse refers to someone who truthfully believed that he or she was married to the deceased individual, though the marriage was not valid).
Many believe that there is nothing that can be done to bring back an individual who passed away as a result of a wrongful death case at the hands of someone else’s negligence. While this is true, the purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate the surviving family members and all those affected for the damages that will ensue and have resulted as a consequence of the death of their loved one. The damages that can be awarded and are fairly owed are economic and non-economic losses. Economic damages that a family can recover in the case of a wrongful death accident include funeral and burial expenses, costs of medical care given to the deceased family member before death, and lost income of the deceased loved one. Non-economic damages have a broader range and are dependent on each circumstance but usually include loss of companionship, moral support, affection, love, and if appropriate, sexual intimacy. Should a wrongful death case not settle in pre-litigation negotiations, the team at The Law Collective will pursue court remedies and engage in aggressive litigation to take your case to a jury who can award you and your family these types of damages to ensure that justice is served for the loss of your loved one.
