Auto Accidents: Wrongful Death
Deceased individuals cannot file lawsuits to protest their own wrongful death. Laws have been set right, but every state has its own version with differences in who can sue on behalf of the deceased and who can be held responsible. Be that as it may, the legal justice system works very well in this matter. Motor vehicle accidents are the single biggest reason for which wrongful death claims and civil lawsuits are filed.
Do you believe someone you know or loved wrongfully die due to the negligence of another person? If so, contact a wrongful death attorney in your area today and find out how you can seek justice.
Odds are in your favor if your case falls under one of the following common categories of wrongful death claims:
But first, find out if you are allowed by your state to file a wrongful death claim. The "real parties in interest" include spouses, children and parents of unmarried children.
Some states also allow distant family members, life partners and others financially dependent on the deceased or affected financially by the death.
Wrongful birth claim laws also vary from state to state. Some states require that the fetus should be born alive and will only allow the claim to be filed if a fetus dies subsequent to birth.
Does the death of a loved one fall under one of these categories? If so, contact a wrongful death attorney in your area today and explore your legal options. Punish those guilty and provide closure for someone you loved dearly – someone who cannot ask for justice anymore because their life was cut short brutally.
