What Constitutes a Personal Injury Claim?
There are many circumstances in which a claim for compensation can be pursued, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice cases
- Workplace injuries
- Premises liability cases
How Wrongful Death & Personal Injury Differ
These two types of cases have much in common since they are harm caused as a result of a negligent action. A major difference comes from the damages the affected injured party is seeking compensation for. Personal injury claims pursue compensation for things like medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering. Wrongful death is filed by the surviving family of a victim to seek compensation for things like lost future earnings, funeral costs, and financial support.
Life-Altering Consequences of a Wrongful Death
Losing a loved one is an accident one of the most tragic and heartbreaking moments in a person’s life. Not only must family members grieve over someone close to them, they must also take care of funeral and burial expenses, as well as determine how to divide the deceased person’s estate.
While dealing with all of this, the last thing on your mind is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party. However, successfully filing such a claim will result in the compensation and justice your family deserves.
In addition to economic damages such as funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses before the person’s death, and other tangible damages, and non-economic damages like emotional distress, as well as pain and suffering, different surviving family members can also recover the following:
- Spouses – The surviving spouse can often recover damages for lost companionship and the emotional distress related to the death.
- Children – Minor children, rather than adult children, may obtain damages for the lost benefits for losing a parent, including financial and emotional support and comfort.
- Parents – Individuals who lost a minor child can recover damages for the lost relationship with the child and emotional trauma associated with the death.
If the at-fault party’s actions were particularly egregious or reckless, you may be able to recover punitive damages, which are designed to punish that party and deter such behavior in the future. During this trying time, our Cumming wrongful death attorney can protect your rights and best interests throughout the legal process while you focus on grieving.
