Wrongful death is a legal term that refers to a death that is the result of another person’s action. Wrongful death lawsuits are often the most difficult for family members to handle because it means you need to come face to face with the situation and often face to face with the reason behind the death of a loved one. For many, this is simply too much pain to deal with. For others, however, filing a wrongful death lawsuit is the only way to get the compensation and closure your loved one deserves and move on with your life.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Filing for wrongful death can be one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make. Wrongful death lawsuits can normally only be filed by those immediate surviving family members over the age of 18 and only for a certain period of time after the accident. It is natural to feel confused, overwhelmed and upset by the entire procedure. The team at Helgen and Helgen Law Firm will do everything in their power to make this experience as pain free and stress free as physically possible. It is important to get the compensation you deserve so you and your family do not have to suffer anymore than you already are.
Wrongful Death Complications
Wrongful death is often associated with several other personal injury incidents and can be the result of the following:
- Auto or truck accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability
- Dangerous drugs
- Workplace related injuries
Wrongful death can be a difficult case to manage. This is because, for one, the victim is deceased and thus cannot file the claim and, for two, it is often difficult to determine fair compensation based on something that has ended so tragically. Some of the financial factors that need to be considered include medical expenses, funeral costs, burial costs, loss of anticipated earnings (to support any family), loss of inheritance (to support any children of the deceased) and loss of benefits. Of course, there is no way to put a price on the emotional strain and suffering caused by wrongful death, but a wrongful death lawsuit will take care of the legal requirements as well as any financial compensation.
