Weinberg Law Offices can help you if you suffered the loss of a loved one due to someone else’s negligent conduct.
Wrongful death is the legal term that describes a situation where negligence results in the death of another person.
Wrongful death happens for a variety of reasons, including medical malpractice, workplace accidents, car accidents, plane crashes, exposure to dangerous conditions or substances, or other serious accidents during supervised activities.
The attorney’s goal is to ensure that survivors and beneficiaries are compensated for their loss and that they are cared for in the years after their loved one’s death.
An attorney experienced in wrongful death law can achieve the best possible result in a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a family.
Also in construction work, police misconduct, and sometimes for the use of defective equipment or products.
Likewise, a slip and fall in a commercial establishment due to defects in the floor, poisoning in restaurants and lack of safety equipment in companies, among other situations.
The Losses Left by a Wrongful Death
Many times the relatives of the victims prefer to file the wrongful death cases for fear of acting against those responsible for various reasons.
Weinberg Law Offices specializes in these types of cases and can help you mitigate the damages caused including:
- Loss of present and future income of deceased persons from the time of injury until death if not immediately caused by the accident.
- Pain and suffering of the survivors due to the loss of moral and economic support of the deceased loved one.
- Medical expenses and medicines.
- Bills for funeral expenses.
What Do Families Get in Wrongful Death Cases?
The relatives of the person killed by wrongful death during a car accident can obtain compensation to cover funeral expenses, pain and suffering, loss of employment, and income.
The children of the deceased person could recover the losses of support and education that their death causes.
Compensation for punitive damages, which is also required of the person responsible, seeks to punish negligent conduct and damage caused to other people on the road.
The law punishes those responsible for these damages/crimes with pecuniary sanctions since it is considered that doing so will force negligent drivers to correct their driving behavior.
