Do you have a valid wrongful death claim?

If you lost a loved one due to an accident or any type of personal injury incident, it can be devastating for your Tennessee family. In addition to the grief and emotional trauma of your situation, you are also dealing with the financial losses that can come with a fatal accident. This can be a burden too heavy to carry alone. 

In some cases, grieving families have grounds to seek compensation through a lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit cannot bring back your loved one or undo the damage, but it can allow your family to regain financial stability and move. It could be beneficial for you to consider this option during this difficult time.

Understanding wrongful death claims

Not every fatal accident is grounds for a wrongful death claim. However, if your loved one passed away as the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another person, you may have a case. Some of the most common wrongful death instances include: 

  • Auto accidents
  • Aviation accidents
  • Medical malpractice that leads to fatal infection or illnesses
  • Criminal activities
  • Accidents during supervised activities

If you decide to move forward with civil action after what you believe is the wrongful death of a loved one, you will need to prove that the loss of your loved one was a direct result of another party's actions. Additionally, you will need evidence that remaining family members have suffered financially as a result of the loss.

Through a wrongful death claim, you may be able to recover your financial losses associated with medical bills and much more. You can fight for compensation for your emotional pain and suffering as well as lost income, loss of companionship and loss of support.

A better future for your family

A wrongful death action may be a viable way for you to address your losses and obtain security for your long-term interests.

The death of a loved one can impact your life in many ways for years to come. Before you accept a settlement or decide that you likely do not have a case, it can be beneficial to seek an assessment of your case and an explanation of the legal options that may be available to you.
