Wrongful death results from the misconduct or negligence of another person, entity or business. An action for damages can be brought by the survivors of the decedent, which include the spouse, children or parents. A claim for pain and suffering that was experienced by the decedent before death on the other hand can be brought by his or her estate. The claim can be made in several different situations that include trucking accidents, car accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and nursing home negligence. The damages that could be claimed include lost income, medical bills, pain, suffering loss of consortium, mental and emotional anguish and loss of relationship.

In many instances, the unexpected demise of a family member leaves the survivors not knowing what to do or wondering how they could handle the loss. If the victim was the breadwinner, the economic uncertainty brought by the death can be very devastating. To hold the responsible person or party responsible for the accident that caused the wrongful death, you should get proper legal representation at once. With a legal action, you will be able to give justice to your loved one as well as gain monetary compensation for the loss you and your family suffered.

Wrongful death is a serious case and not a lot of law firms have the resources to take your case to trial.
