The unnecessary death of a family member is tragic. The lives of those who remain – a husband or wife, parents and grandparents, brothers and sisters, and children – are forever changed. In addition to profound emotional damage, there is often great financial loss as well. “Wrongful death” cases are among the most serious legal matters that come before our Courts.
Automobile and truck accidents, medical malpractice, hospital errors, nursing home neglect, dangerous premises, defective products, and many other avoidable hazards, may cause the wrongful death of a loved one. Each case will be unique – just as each family is unique.
Time limitations for bringing wrongful death lawsuits require careful thought, since these types of cases are often brought simultaneously with a “survival” claim, which may have a different “statute of limitations.” The safest thing to do is to reach out to a qualified attorney early on, before time limits expire or important evidence is lost.
