Serious Injuries and Wrongful Death
What can you do when a loved one has been seriously injured or killed?
We all have an obligation to be wary of how our actions affect others, especially since accidents can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Negligence is a legal concept referring to a person’s action or inaction that fails to fulfill this duty. Negligence is the basis for many lawsuits and includes a wide variety of activities, including distracted driving, dangerous conditions on someone’s property, disobeying safety regulations and many other situations.If a loved one was injured or killed because of the negligence of another, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Serious injury and wrongful death lawsuits can help your family pay for medical and funeral expenses as well as other lost financial benefits. These lawsuits can be filed against individuals, companies, organizations or government bodies.

There are many laws governing a serious injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death lawsuits can only be filed by an appointed representative on behalf of the estate of the decedent (the legal term for the person who has died). While the estate is a legal entity which may file this suit, it is often the beneficiaries of the estate (the decedent’s surviving spouse, children, parents or others) who ultimately receive any recovery from a favorable judgment.
When you’re pursuing a serious injury or wrongful death lawsuit, there are legal time limits called statutes of limitations. There are also complex legal rules of procedure and evidence. This is why it’s critical to contact an attorney as soon as possible following the serious injury or wrongful death of a loved one.
