Nothing can replace the tragic loss of a loved one. When these losses are caused by the reckless or negligent actions of some other party, however, it can be that much more difficult to endure – especially if the untimely death is compounded by financial stresses as families are harpooned with medical bills and other costs.
At the Law Office of Richard Langerman, we are here to support families during these difficult times. For nearly three decades, our trusted Phoenix wrongful death lawyer, Richard Langerman, has been dedicated to helping families who have lost loved ones to wrongful deaths:
• Fight for justice
• Hold the negligent party (or parties) liable for the harm and losses they have caused
• Secure the financial recoveries these families deserve.
No amount of compensation will ever erase or make up for the tragic loss of a loved one. Seeking financial recoveries for wrongful deaths, however, can be essential to getting families some justice and much-needed support. And that can be integral to picking up the pieces, overcoming profound grief and starting to restore a family devastated by a wrongful death.
Common Causes of Wrongful Deaths
Wrongful deaths can be caused by any number of events or factors, some of the most common of which include:
Motor vehicle accidents, including:
Of course, many other types of accidents or elements can contribute to wrongful deaths. Consulting a lawyer can be the key to figuring out when negligence may have played a role in causing a death – and, if so, what the best options for justice may be.
After a Wrongful Death: Financial Recoveries & Justice
Compensation for a wrongful death can include various types of damages, depending on the specific circumstances that triggered the death. In general, however, wrongful death recoveries tend to include compensation for (but not necessarily limited to):
Funeral and burial expenses
Hospital bills and other medical expenses
Future lost income
Loss of consortium
These compensatory damages may be supplemented by punitive damages in some cases (like when the negligence that contributed to the wrongful death was particularly egregious and/or the courts want to take an extra step to punish the negligent party).
