The death of a loved one is a tragic and devastating experience. When that death comes prematurely due to the negligence or deliberate misconduct of another party, then the tragedy is also known as wrongful death. For those left behind following the wrongful death of a family member, the financial burden of lost income coupled with the emotional harm is a devastating burden to bear.
There are numerous acts that might have grounds for a wrongful death. Some of these include:
- Reckless driving, which results in an automobile accident, motorcycle accident, or truck accident
- Medical malpractice, including surgical malpractice, anesthetic malpractice and cosmetic surgery malpractice
- Nursing home abuse or neglect in which a nursing home employee is guilty of cruelty or carelessness in their responsibility for your loved one
Losing a loved one due to someone’s carelessness, recklessness and/or neglect is heart wrenching. While emotional harm can often be compensated for, financial loss and injury is where the majority of damages stem from. Entitlement may include loss of potential inheritance, diminished future income, medical expenses and funeral costs. At Robbins & Associates, we have experienced wrongful death attorneys who will review your case and conclude the amount of damages you and your family are entitled to.
