How to Know It’s Time to Contact a Wrongful Death Lawyer
When a wrongful death occurs, it can be difficult just to get from one day to the next. There are huge expenses and responsibilities that pile up very quickly, which leaves little time for grieving and other necessities like working and pursuing a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death lawyer can ease this burden.
Wrongful death lawyers will know how to review your claim, how to collect evidence, how to find the right experts, and how to bring a case against those responsible. Removing that responsibility from your own shoulders is an important step to being able to focus on the more immediate needs of you and your surviving loved ones. A wrongful death lawyer can take over the case and give you the chance to get the compensation you deserve, while you take care of your family.

The Wrongful Death Cases We See Most Often
Wrongful deaths can occur for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes include:
- Medical malpractice
- Dangerous/defective drugs and other medical products
- Defective products
- Workplace accidents
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall
This list is by no means exhaustive. If you are unsure if your case falls into one of these categories, the best option is to simply contact us and ask.
Damages You Can Pursue in Litigation
While each case is different, there are many types of damages that you can pursue in your claim. Among them are:
- Medical costs the deceased incurred before their death
- Funeral costs
- Burial expenses
- Loss of future earnings that your loved one would have earned
- Loss of protection, guidance, and assistance of lost loved one
- Loss of love and companionship of lost loved one
- Punitive damages (punishment for the actions of the individuals or companies involved)
Whether you are eligible for these and other damages depends on how you are related to the deceased and the precise details of your case. Much of your case will revolve around arguing over which damages should be paid and how much for each. While the lawyers on the other side (often from insurance companies) will try to reduce these damages or remove them entirely, it is our job to ensure you get every penny you should for the horrible situation you face.
It is important to note that only certain people are eligible to file wrongful death claims. Generally, wrongful death claims are limited to the immediate family of the deceased, people who depended financially on the deceased, and the representative of the estate. There are some exceptions, however. To find out whether you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of your deceased loved one, contact Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers.
