The claim is intended to recover expenses in the absence of the deceased.
- Loss of salary
- Health Benefits
- Pain and suffering
It also includes other factors that place burdens on the surviving family members or “distributees”.

It Is Important To Seek Representation Early On
Hiring a wrongful death lawyer IN the immediate aftermath of a loved
one's death may seem unimportant in the face of such a severe loss. But hiring the
right lawyer is a critical decision that may dramatically affect the lives of the
surviving spouse and family members.
Unfortunately, the person or companies responsible for causing death are frequently not held accountable due to the failure of surviving family members to institute prompt legal action.
All too often, critical evidence is destroyed in the days and weeks following a fatal accident, and complex state laws governing wrongful death may eliminate the possibility of recovery or bar legal action when certain legal criteria or time limitations are not satisfied.
Surviving family members are strongly urged to consult with a wrongful death lawyer immediately.
