The loss of a loved one is never easy, but the grieving process can be made even more challenging if your family member’s death could have been prevented.

Can I File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Only those closest to the deceased may file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Typically, the spouse, adult children, or parents of the deceased will be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. That said, if a closer relation does not file, other close dependents or relatives may be able to file a suit instead. If you think you may be eligibile to file a claim, we encourage you to discuss the particulars of your case with an attorney.

- Burial expenses
- Funeral costs
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of earnings from the deceased
- Loss of wages related to care for the deceased
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
