A wrongful death occurs when a person loses their life due to the actions or in-actions of another person. If a loved one has died because of the negligence or carelessness of another person or organization, you may be able to get compensation.
Wrongful death claims are a type of personal injury. And as far as personal injuries may go, the worst possible injury one can suffer is death. While the deceased person cannot file a wrongful death lawsuit, their surviving family members can file a suit on their behalf.
When a loved one dies, we feel intense pain and grief. It is usually very hard to completely recover from the death of a loved one. We always want to find out what happened and if our search shows that the death was caused by the negligence of others, anger often accompanies that pain.
This anger can be channeled into filing a wrongful death claim and although a successful wrongful death lawsuit can’t bring the victim back, it gives their loved ones closure and some compensation for their loss.
At Oshan and associates, our wrongful death attorneys are very passionate about getting you the justice you deserve. We will utilize our resources and ensure that you are awarded with the full compensation you deserve.
