Establishing a Wrongful Death Claim

A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit that is brought before the court by a deceased persons family (or dependents) against the person or entity they believe to be responsible for their loved ones death. Plaintiffs in wrongful death cases seek compensation for their personal loss that includes loss of wages that would have otherwise been earned by the deceased, medical bills and funeral expenses associated with the fatal event, legal expenses, and more.

Over 90,000 deaths each year are contributed to medical malpractice according to the Institute of Medicine. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 10,000 people die each year in the U.S. due to drunk driving. And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that slip and fall accidents result in over 20,000 fatalities a year. In any of these events or others where there is clear responsibility that rests with another person or party, a wrongful death suit may be pursued.

Litigating Wrongful Death

Wrongful death suits can be brought by survivors who are directly impacted by the victims death including spouses, dependents, immediate family members, and those who may be considered to be financially and/or otherwise impacted by the death of the diseased.

A successful wrongful death lawsuit establishes legal fault with one person in connection with another persons death. A wrongful death lawsuit can be brought against individuals, organizations, product manufacturers, hospitals, government agencies, and more. Such cases can include lawsuits brought against a driver responsible for a fatal accident, the manufacturer of a product that caused a death, the owner of a restaurant or bar that over served alcohol to an impaired driver, a doctor whose negligence resulted in a patients death, etc.

There are some organizations that have immunity against wrongful death lawsuits as result of state and federal law. So its important that those who decide to pursue compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit do so with the aid of a law firm that understands the nuances of these particular laws and how best to proceed.

Litigation for Wrongful Death Cases

Non-Recourse Funding Provides Trusted Relief

Nationwide Litigation Funding is considered to be an important resource for both plaintiffs and attorneys. This type of funding is different from traditional loans in that we are subsidized by private investors. This allows us to providing funding at our discretion without plaintiffs or attorneys having to undergo the traditional loan application, credit check, employment verification, and more. Funds are provided to help plaintiffs with their living expenses - as well as expenses connected to the accident and death of their loved one - as they await compensation from a settlement or win of their case. Funds are also provided to lawyers and firms that allow them to effectively fight these cases with the proper resources behind them until their cases are won or settled. If, however, the case is not won or settled in the plaintiffs favor, no repayment is required. This freedom and flexibility allows us to provide financial resources to the people who need it most during what can be a tedious legal process.
