What Are You Entitled to in a Wrongful Death Claim?

Some of the most common types of wrongful death cases in Mesa are car, truck, or motorcycle accidents. Pedestrian accidents, boating accidents, and premises liability accidents, as well as product liability and workplace accidents, can also lead to wrongful death claims.

Liability is determined by proving a defendant owed your loved one a duty of care, and as a result of their negligence, this duty was breached. If this can be established, the defendant will be found negligent, and be liable for your loved one's death.

By filing a wrongful death claim against the negligent person, company or entity, you can recover compensation for unforeseen expenses and non-economic losses. Non-economic losses include your loss of companionship, love, and care, as well as compensation for your pain and suffering.

Damages could also cover medical bills for past treatment, loss of future income, and funeral expenses. Punitive damages, which are damages intended to punish the liable party, may also be awarded.

While filing a claim may be the last thing on your mind at this time of grief, a wrongful death action may help with gaining a sense of justice and closure. The Husband & Wife Law Team can handle your wrongful death case, giving you peace of mind that your interests are being taken care of.

What Is the Process of Filing a Wrongful Death Claim?

To file a wrongful death claim in Mesa, you must be a close family member of the deceased, such as a spouse or child. To initiate the process, you will need to have your case reviewed by an attorney. The Husband & Wife Law Team will launch a detailed investigation into your loved one's death. We will then draft and file a wrongful death claim, which will include how much compensation you should receive.

Once the defendant has been notified of your intent to file a claim for damages, settlement discussions will commence. This will lead to settlement discussions with the defendant's attorney where we will negotiate to achieve a fair offer. If this cannot be achieved, we will commence a lawsuit.

What Are the Differences Between Lawsuits and Settlements?

A settlement is where an agreement is reached between you and the defendant, outside of court. If a fair offer is made, accepting a settlement is the best option. This will resolve your case faster and avoid incurring the stress and expense of going to court. The main disadvantage of a settlement is that the defendants may try to get you to accept a lowball offer in an attempt to minimize the amount of compensation a company, often an insurance company, has to pay out.

The Husband & Wife Law Team believe you should not settle for less than full and fair compensation for your loss and are willing to initiate a lawsuit to fight for your rights in court where necessary. We are compassionate Mesa injury attorneys who understand the needs of a grieving family. We will work to ensure you receive the compensation you need and deserve, so call us at (602) 457-6222 today.
