It can be extremely difficult to emotionally cope when a loved one dies. Surviving family members may be shocked, saddened, and angry. Processing these emotions is important, but it may not be the end of the matter.
If your loved one is killed because of the negligence of another, questions may be raised. There can be questions about why the accident occurred, how it could have been prevented, and if legal action should be taken.
There can also be financial concerns. People may have lost their childcare provider, their breadwinner, and/or have other expenses related to the death of their loved one, such as funeral costs and medical expenses. This uncertainty can add to a family's stress at an already difficult time. Often, a wrongful death lawsuit can help to compensate families for these financial losses. While a legal claim cannot heal the emotional pain, it can help to secure a family's future.
