Losing a loved one unexpectedly is among the most painful experiences anyone can endure. Coping with such a loss can be particularly challenging if your loved one would still be alive were it not for the negligence of another party.
No one can give you back someone who has passed away. However, if your loved one’s death was the result of another party’s carelessness, you may at least seek compensation for various losses you have incurred in both the immediate and long-term aftermath of their passing. You may pursue what you are owed by filing a wrongful death claim or lawsuit.
There is no guarantee you will recover compensation simply because you have filed a claim. Often, the negligent party’s insurance carrier will be responsible for paying you in these circumstances. Odds are an insurer will attempt to avoid paying what you deserve by lowballing you or denying your claim entirely.
You can optimize your chances of recovering fair compensation by enlisting the help of legal professionals who have experience representing clients like yourself. At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our Milton, Massachusetts wrongful death attorneys are prepared to review your case, explain your legal options, and provide aggressive representation if you decide to work with us.
Wrongful death cases can take many forms. The following are merely a few noteworthy examples of ways in which someone else’s negligence can result in the death of your loved one:
This is not an exhaustive list. If you are unsure of whether your loved one’s passing qualifies as an example of wrongful death, schedule a consultation with a Milton wrongful death lawyer. A legal professional can help you better understand whether you have grounds to file a claim or lawsuit.
They can also help you identify the party whose negligence caused your loved one’s passing. This is critical. You can only secure compensation via a wrongful death claim or lawsuit if you accurately determine who is responsible for providing it. Additionally, your attorney will help you gather sufficient evidence to strengthen your case against the negligent party, ensuring it is difficult if not impossible for an insurance carrier to deny your claim.
Again, no lawyer will pretend that any amount of money can truly make up for the loss of a spouse or other such loved one. That said, if their death was the result of someone else’s negligence, you at least deserve compensation for funeral expenses, loss of their income, and other relevant compensable losses.
