Wrongful Death

Pursuing Compensation After A Fatal Accident

Family relationships vary, so there is no one way to describe your relationship with the next-of-kin relative who died in a crash or another accident:

  • Your spouse
  • Your child
  • Your parent

Nearly everyone experiences strong emotions when someone close to them dies in an accident. Imagining the person’s fear and pain is one thing. Coping with your intense feelings of missing them is another. On top of the impact to your family and your ability to enjoy life, you may soon experience financial hardship as you cope with:

  • Final medical bills of the deceased
  • A funeral
  • Burial
  • Loss of the person’s income and/or services to the family, like homemaking.

When the accidental death happened because of someone else’s negligence — when someone else was responsible — you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim against that at-fault individual. Furthermore, if your motorcycle was struck or forced off the road by a truck, you may be able to recover compensation from several sources of liability: perhaps from the driver of the truck, the dispatcher, the company that loaded the cargo and even a government body that did not provide proper signage or road upkeep.
