What is Wrongful Death?
Under the Fatal Accidents Act (FAA), wrongful death applies when a person is deceased as the result of a wrongful act, negligent action, or default of another party where the person, had they survived, would have cause to take action for the damages caused. The FAA is not intended to “undo” the emotional harm and trauma caused by a sudden loss for the family but recognizes that wrongful deaths can often have dire financial repercussions for surviving kin members. Where deaths have been caused directly by the actions or inaction of another, pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit can help you recover the funds you need to move forward and rebuild during one of the most vulnerable times in your life.
Wrongful death claims can be difficult to navigate, and partnering with an experienced team of injury lawyers helps to keep your best interests at the forefront and protect you from missing out on essential settlement funds you need for the future.
