Wrongful Death

The wrongful death of a loved one is a difficult experience that can cause a family great pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s neglect or misconduct, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim.

This claim can provide you with compensation to help cover expenses related to the loss of your loved one. At East Valley Injury Law, our attorneys can provide you with assistance in filing a wrongful death claim.

A wrongful death claim is similar to a personal injury claim that people file when they have been injured through no fault of their own. In a wrongful death case, certain family members or parties are able to file a claim on behalf of the deceased if the death was someone else’s fault. Keep in mind that only certain parties are able to file a wrongful death claim, such as surviving spouses, surviving children, or parents or legal guardians of the deceased. Personal representatives of surviving children, parents, or spouses, as well as personal representatives of the deceased’s estate, may also be able to legally file these claims.

Damages in Wrongful Death Cases

Those who file a wrongful death claim are able to seek compensation for different kinds of damages. When another party was at fault for your loved one’s death, you might be able to receive compensation for the costs of their funeral and burial. Other kinds of damages that this compensation may cover include the loss of the deceased’s income, loss of property, emotional trauma, grief, and any physical pain and suffering your loved one experienced. With a wrongful death claim, you might also be able to seek compensation related to a lost inheritance or a loss of guidance.
