A fatal accident usually leaves surviving family members in severe emotional and financial distress. If you have lost a family member to an accident caused by another person’s intentional, reckless, or negligent conduct, it is a wrongful death. You may be entitled to compensation for the losses you have suffered. This can include compensation for mental anguish and lost companionship, as well as compensation for a lifetime of lost income and financial support that the deceased would have contributed to his or her spouse or children. While no amount of money can ever compensate you for your loss, making a claim is a way to obtain some measure of justice while helping to ensure that your family recovers from its loss financially.
