Obviously, as the title suggests, wrongful deaths are unfortunately caused by negligent people in their duties and responsibilities. Though the person that has been wronged has passed away, family members can bring the case to court to receive economic and noneconomic retribution.
The first family members eligible to file a wrongful death case and receive benefits are spouses, registered domestic partners, and children. If the deceased has no one to fulfill those roles, the case can be filed for parents or siblings to benefit from the wrongful death suit.
While the state files criminal cases, wrongful death cases (and civil cases like it) are filed by surviving members of the deceased’s family and only pertain to money damages. Retribution is monetary in wrongful death suits, and no criminal charges are brought upon opposing parties.
Perhaps most important to remember is that you must file a wrongful death suit within three years of your loved one’s passing. If it’s not filed within that time period, the courts will likely refuse to hear it, meaning you’re no longer eligible for compensation for the opposing party’s negligence.
You May Be Entitled To This and More
These damages and compensations that are paid out can cover a variety of charges. This can include things like your loved one’s last medical bills, funeral expenses—even lost income that would have been generated if your loved one hadn’t passed.
Moreover, you can ask for retribution for the pain and suffering of enduring this loss. What will be awarded to you depends on the situation, but no one should have to suffer such a loss at the hands of misconduct without financial compensation.
Family members like spouses, domestic partners, and children, step- or otherwise, can ask for retribution based on loss of care and companionship. It’s harder for family members like parents or siblings to file for this, but it could be possible.
