In the wake of a tragic, fatal accident, the family members of wrongfully deceased accident victims may be overwhelmed with grief. Few experiences are as emotionally challenging as losing a loved one, especially when their death was caused by someone else’s negligence. 

When the wrongful actions of another party or entity is directly responsible for someone else’s loss of life, the close relatives of the deceased accident victim may feel as though they will never be able to truly find justice. No legal actions will be able to return their family member to them, no amount of money will be able to change the past, and no settlement will ever fill the void created by a close relative’s death. However, by pursuing a civil claim against the negligent party whose wrongful conduct caused their family member to lose their life, certain bereaved family members may be able to recover financial compensation for damages they have incurred or will incur in the future as a result of the at-fault party’s negligence. 

As a result of their relative’s death, bereaved family members of wrongfully deceased accident victims often incur significant financial losses. After the accident, relatives of the fatally wounded victim are often required to pay for their medical expenses and necessary costs of care prior to their death. Furthermore, the family of the deceased may incur financial losses related to funeral services, interment costs, and other expenses. Relatives who relied on their deceased family member for financial support may incur losses in the form of expected future income. Additionally, the bereaved relatives of wrongfully deceased family members often sustain non-economic damages, including loss of guidance and loss of companionship.
