When a loved one dies, family members are left with heavy hearts and many details to deal with. When that death is the result of the negligence of another, the ordeal can seem overwhelming. On top of coping with the loss of a family member and the normal details that accompany such a loss, legal details and considerations intrude on the grieving process.
In addition to the extreme emotional toll resulting from death, families can suffer tremendous financial burdens from the untimely death of a wage earner. In such cases, the impact on a family’s finances can be immediate and devastating. While some insurance coverage may be immediately available, those funds are usually not enough to provide long-term financial stability for the family.
The loss is no less devastating when the death is that of a child, young adult or non-wage earner. In any wrongful death case, the primary loss is the relationship itself. Frequently, the circumstances seem meaningless and can shake an individual and a family to the core. With each passing day, the permanency of the loss becomes more real, but no easier to accept.
Being thrust into the legal arena on top of the usual emotional turmoil that accompanies the death of a loved one is often frustrating and confusing. The legal environment is completely foreign and often overwhelming. Having the right lawyer to steer you through those unfamiliar waters is critical.
