If someone you loved suddenly lost their life in a terrible accident, or even at the hands of a criminal, the emotional impact would be instantly devastating. Naturally, in the Wrongful Death situation described, you’d want to know several things:
1. Who is responsible?
2. Can this person / entity be charged with a crime?
3. How will this affect me financially?
That last question is grim, but the abrupt death of a loved one who provided financial support can quickly throw a family into financial chaos – or even homelessness. And it’s only fair that the person or company responsible for that death compensate you for your loss.
In a Wrongful Death lawsuit, the justice system defines how much money your loved one would have provided if they lived. Whether the deceased was a celebrated artist or struggling architect, it’s up to your attorney to make clear how much that life was worth, and if the guilty party should pay accordingly.
