Can You Sue for the Wrongful Death of a Loved one?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

Can You Sue for the Wrongful Death of a Loved one?Losing a loved one or close family member is one of the most difficult and traumatic events that anyone will ever go through.  This is especially true if the death came as the result of the actions of another party and surviving family members and friends are struggling with the mounting funeral expenses, lost wages, or any other number of costs that begin to pile up.  Farhad Hamdam, wrongful death lawyer in Los Angeles, is here to work closely with you and your loved ones to receive a fair settlement after one of these heartbreaking deaths.

In these types of cases, the immediate family will always have the ability to sue after the loss of a parent, sibling, spouse, or child.  In some scenarios, loved ones may also be able to sue if they can prove the financial effect that the death has had on them.  These types of cases vary between states, and that is why it is important to seek out professional legal assistance as quickly as possible.

The initial funeral expenses and lost wages will often be the first costs that are discussed at either the civil trial or out-of-court mediation.  Surviving family members and loved ones may also be able to receive compensation for any of the medical expenses that were accrued.  In the most severe cases, the judge may award the family punitive damages in addition to the initial settlement.

Losing a loved one is difficult enough on its own, and that is why all families should contact Farhad Hamdam, Los Angeles PI attorney, to discuss which legal options may be available to them.
