If some other person, company, or agency caused the death, that person or entity should provide compensation. A wrongful death claim may be filed to recover monetary damages. Monetary damages are obviously available to cover things like funeral costs and loss of the wages the deceased should have been earning during his life. Family members should also get compensation for other damages from intangible losses as well.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
A personal injury lawyer can negotiate a wrongful death settlement in many cases. This would involve working with the insurer of the person or company who caused the death.
