Few things can be as devastating as the death of a loved one. This is especially true if you believe your friend or family member’s death could have been prevented. If you feel as though the death of someone close to you was caused, intentionally or unintentionally, by another individual, you may wish to consider filing a wrongful death claim. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Rodriguez Interiano Hanson & Rodgers can speak with you about your case, assess your situation and advise you on the potential risks and benefits associated with filing a wrongful death claim.
Can I File a Wrongful Death Claim?
If you suspect someone you love passed away due to negligence or violence committed by another person, you may have cause to file a wrongful death claim and potentially pursue litigation against the individual. However, not everyone is entitled to file such a claim, and only those with specific relationships to the deceased may consider pursuing wrongful death litigation. You may file a wrongful death lawsuit if:
- You are directly related (spouse, child or parent) to the deceased
- You were financially dependent upon the deceased at the time of his or her death
- You are a parent of an unborn child that died due to pregnancy or childbirth complications caused directly by medical practices
If any of these circumstances apply to you and you believe an individual is responsible for the death of your loved one, the law firm of Rodriguez Interiano Hanson & Rodgers can help you.
