Wrongful Death Overview
When someone else’s negligence results in the death of an individual, that individual’s family is entitled to recover damages for their loss. At LOJJH, we understand the pain and suffering family members endure when their loved one is wrongfully taken from them. While no amount of money will bring their loved one back, it is important to hold the individual or business accountable for their actions. We can help.
Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Generally, immediate family members (spouses, children and parents) have standing to file a wrongful death claim. The amount of damages awarded will depend on the family member’s relationship to the deceased.
