Pursuing Damages After a Wrongful Death

In a typical civil suit following an accident, injured victims pursue money to cover their medical expenses, lost wages, and other post-accident hardships. In the case of a wrongful death, however, the hardships and damages considered for compensation are somewhat different. No amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one or make the grieving process easier. Instead, compensation for a wrongful death is intended to make life easier for those left behind as you must take care of:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of care, companionship, guidance, support of the deceased
  • Legal fees

Wrongful death claims must be filed by the personal representative of the estate (either named in a will or appointed by probate court) within one year of the death. Any recovered awards are passed to surviving spouses and children, but can also be recovered by surviving parents or the estate itself in certain circumstances.

Have more questions during this difficult time? We are ready to hear your story, assess the details of your case, provide you with the insightful and actionable legal options. Contact us at (270) 977-8910 today.
