Losing a loved one is painful at any time, but if their death was caused by someone else’s negligence, it will be even harder to bear.
At the HK Loung Law Firm, we understand what you are going through. We have helped countless families successfully navigate the complicated and confusing process of filing a wrongful death claim, and we can help you too.
We have a detailed knowledge of the law on all kinds of wrongful death accidents:
There are three main ways that a wrongful death claim can benefit your family:
Justice: depending on the circumstances of your loved one’s death, there may or may not be any criminal liability involved. But by filing a civil action to hold the liable party financially responsible for your loved one’s death, you can still get a sense of justice and closure about the situation.
Compensation for Past Bills: Your loved one’s death may have left your family with significant debts and expenses, especially if they were hospitalized before they passed away. With a wrongful death action, you can receive compensation for expenses like medical bills, funeral expenses, and burial costs to ensure the death does not leave you in debt.
Compensation for the Future: Wrongful death compensation covers more than just past expenses. You can also receive damages to compensate you for the loss of future benefits your loved one would have provided. This includes the income they would have earned, the value of household services they would have provided, and the love, affection, moral support, and guidance they would have provided.
If you have lost a spouse, domestic partner, or parent, you automatically have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim. Other relatives may also be able to bring claims if they can prove that they were financially dependent on the deceased person.
