Was A Loved One Killed By Someone Else’s Carelessness?
When a person dies due to the misconduct or negligence of another person, it is considered a wrongful death. If your loved one has died under such circumstances, you and your family may be entitled to compensation. At Avila & Shaddow Attorneys at Law, we are wrongful death attorneys who can help you during this difficult and confusing time.
Wrongful death cases stem from:
- Car accidents
- Industrial accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Harmful prescription drugs
- Pharmacist errors
- Plane crashes
- Defective products
- Intentional negligent conduct
- Many other causes
It is important to speak with a wrongful death attorney who can review the facts of the case to determine if you or your loved ones might be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of a family member.
What Kind Of Compensation Can A Wrongful Death Claim Involve?
Damages may be awarded to compensate the spouse, children, or parents of a deceased person for the monetary loss they have sustained as a result of the death. Damages are based on the earnings of the deceased, and their potential future earnings.
Additional damages may be awarded for the survivors’ loss of a loved one’s love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, and moral support, as well as for funeral and burial expenses.
