Wrongful Death

University Park Fatal Injury Lawyer Helping Family Members Pursue Compensation

For a family, few things are worse than the untimely death of a loved one. When a person’s life is cut short unexpectedly, their family will often struggle to pick up the pieces. In addition to dealing with grief and emotional trauma, family members may experience financial problems that affect their ability to meet their ongoing needs. When a person’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongful actions, their surviving family members may be able to pursue compensation that will address the damages they have suffered. In these cases, a family will want to work with a personal injury attorney who can advise them of their options and provide them with strong representation in legal proceedings.

Protecting the Rights of Negligence Victims

At Clark Law Group, we believe in protecting the rights of those who have suffered harm because of other people’s negligence. Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be incredibly traumatic, and a person who was responsible for the death may be required to provide compensation for the ways a family has been affected. Whether a wrongful death occurred in a car crash or another accidental situation or was intentionally inflicted, we can help a family take the proper steps to ensure that they will be fully compensated for the damages they have suffered.

Damages in Wrongful Death Cases

A wrongful death may include any situation where a person was killed because of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. The person who caused the death may be held liable for their actions or negligence. An employer or another party may also be held responsible for a wrongful death caused by an employee or a person who was acting on their behalf. If the deceased person would have been able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party or parties had they lived, their family members will be eligible to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

The deceased person’s surviving spouse, children, or parents may seek to recover damages that include:

  • Loss of income and other financial benefits – Without the income earned by a deceased family member, a family may struggle to cover ongoing living expenses. Damages may address the income a family has lost due to the person’s death by looking at the amount that they would have been expected to earn during the rest of their career. Family members may also seek compensation for other benefits they have lost, such as health insurance coverage or assets that would have been set aside for loved ones in an inheritance.
  • Loss of services and support – The deceased person may have provided multiple types of services to family members, including performing household duties and offering guidance and instruction to children. The damages sought by family members may address the ways they have been affected by the loss of these services.
  • Loss of companionship – Family members may struggle to deal with the inability to maintain a loving relationship with the deceased person. The damages sought by a person’s survivors may address children’s loss of a parental figure or a spouse’s loss of a close companion and intimate partner.
  • Grief and mental anguish – A family may experience extreme sorrow due to their loved one’s death, and this may impact their daily activities and their ability to move forward with their lives. While financial compensation cannot bring back a lost family member, it may help a family address these issues by providing them with the resources that will allow them to begin rebuilding their lives.
  • Survival damages – The estate of the deceased person may pursue compensation for damages that they would have been able to recover if they had not died. These may include the medical treatment the person received and the pain and suffering they experienced prior to their death.
