Wrongful Death is best described when a person dies due to the negligence, malpractice or inaction of another individual or party. Wrongful death is the basis for the family of the victim to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. While nothing can bring back your lost loved ones, holding the party responsible for your loss accountable for their wrongful actions can provide some level of comfort for the family members of the victim.
In order to be awarded compensation, the families of wrongful death victims must prove that the death was the result of another party or person’s malpractice or negligence. Kirkpatrick Law Office will aggressively fight for the justice your family deserves.
Almost every state has enacted a statute permitting a wrongful death lawsuit to be brought by the relatives of a person who died as a result of a negligent act. These “wrongful death statutes” or “survivor statutes” vary greatly from state to state. You need an experienced attorney in the area
For example, in some states only a spouse and children may file a wrongful death lawsuit, while in other states, grandparents or other relatives may also file. The concept behind a wrongful death lawsuit is that the wrongful death, in addition to injuring the person who died, also injured people who depended upon the deceased for financial or emotional support before the wrongful death. Eric Kirkpatrick understands this as an experienced wrongful death lawyer and will put his experience to work for you.
