What is a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim refers to a legal claim which a dependent or beneficiary of a deceased individual brings against the person or legal entity that caused the decedent’s death. Specifically, the death must result from another individual or entity’s default, neglect, or wrongful act.
Not everyone is eligible to bring a claim for wrongful death. For example, a decedent’s surviving family member could only file a lawsuit if the decedent would have been eligible to sue successfully, had he or she survived the fatal accident. Moreover, only a person designated as an “authorized survivor” is eligible to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against an at-fault party arising out of the fatal accident. Authorized survivors include:
- Adult interdependent partners
What Damages Are Available in a Wrongful Death Claim?
As a result of a wrongful death claim, the authorized survivor or survivors might be eligible to recover certain damages. Those damages could include compensation for grief and loss of support, as well as for specific fees and expenses.
Valuing a wrongful death claim and making a reasonable projection as to the extent and amount of damages can be a difficult task. Moreover, a jury may be less inclined to award damages in a wrongful death case as opposed to a standard personal injury case. The Red Deer wrongful death Lawyers at Red Deer Personal Injury Law can explore the amounts and types of available damages and could make a claim for those damages on your deceased loved one’s behalf.
