On a day-to-day basis, most of us go about the business of our lives with a sense of assurance that we know what is going to happen next. Our emotional well-being is bolstered by having a sense of stability. Often it is the people we love who help provide that stability. It is their understanding, love and acceptance that helps us feel that all is well.
But sometimes incidents that are out of our control occur and can seriously impact our emotional strength. One especially disorienting event is the unexpected death of a spouse or close family member. One day we are sharing time with someone we love and the next day they are gone. The void created by the loss can cause seemingly insurmountable sadness.
And while the emotional loss is hard enough to deal with, the situation can be that much more difficult if the death was due to the negligence of another. When this is the case, a family may be faced with considering filing a wrongful death claim against those responsible.
The possible circumstances of a wrongful death extend to situations as varied as auto accidents, medical mistakes, hazardous products and dangerous property conditions. It is possible a family could be eligible to receive compensation for the financial support lost due to the death of their loved one.
It is important that a thorough investigation be carried out in order to determine if a family is entitled to compensation due to a wrongful death.
