After the tragic loss of your loved one, you likely don’t want to do anything that could cause further pain, stress, or sadness for your family. You may worry that filing a wrongful death case could cause further grief for everyone. However, a wrongful death case may do just the opposite and provide significant emotional and financial benefit for your family.
How a Wrongful Death Case May Help You
As you weigh the pros and cons of pursuing a wrongful death case, it is essential to know that a wrongful death lawsuit may provide:
- Justice. Sometimes a horrific accident causes a death but no criminal laws are broken. The person who killed your loved one may not go to jail, pay a fine, or have a criminal record. Instead, the only way to hold the person accountable is through a civil wrongful death lawsuit. While the person will maintain their freedom, they may pay for your loved one’s death financially.
- Deterrence. Wrongful death lawsuits can result in significant settlements or court verdicts. Sometimes, these cases make the news or word of mouth travels about the outcome. Other people may think about what happened and remember that they do not want to cause anyone’s death, go through a wrongful death trial, or pay wrongful death damages. Accordingly, they may act more carefully, and lives may be saved.
- Compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit may provide you with compensation for the medical bills your loved one incurred from the time of the accident until the time of death, funeral expenses, lost income, loss of companionship, emotional suffering, and other damages.
