Wrongful death involves fatalities which are the result of a corporation or another person’s reckless acts, carelessness, or negligence. Surviving family members are entitled to compensation for suffering, pain, lost wages, loss of companionship, funeral and burial expenses, future and present financial losses, out of pocket expenses, and all medical expenses.
The amount that one can receive depends upon the health and age of the wrongful death victim, life expectancy, and the degree of loss. In many cases, these variables are argued aggressively by life insurance companies, who seek to pay as little as possible to the surviving family. For this reason, it is important to seek and retain professional legal representation.
In some cases, wrongful death suits are settled out of court. The Law Offices of Troy A. Brookover will do everything within their legal power to settle your case out of court.
