Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one in an accident is devastating, but losing them in an accident that is due to someone else’s negligence makes the matter even more confusing. The death was unexpected and shocking, which adds to the grief that you feel. There is also anger toward the person or party whose negligence caused the accident.

If you have lost a love done in an accident due to the negligence of someone else, you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. Whether the death was caused by a car accident or medical malpractice, an experienced Minneapolis wrongful death lawyer can help you fight for the result that you are looking for, which is compensation for monetary losses resulting from the death of your loved one.

Experience With Different Types Of Wrongful Death Cases

Any accident can result in death. However, some of the most common accidents that lead to the death of one or more individuals include:

  • Infections resulting from injuries sustained in an accident
  • Car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • And many others.

Death can occur from traumatic brain injuries, amputated limbs, and so much more. Sometimes death is instant in an accident.

Fighting For Compensation You Deserve

Minnesota law allows the families of individuals killed in accidents to hold the responsible party accountable for incurred expenses, such as loss of current and future support, medical and funeral expenses, and a number of other applicable damages. There are also non-monetary losses, such as loss of companionship that a person can recover compensation for. While monetary compensation won’t bring back a loved one who was unexpectedly taken away, it does remove some of the financial stress associated with losing that loved one.

Your Minneapolis wrongful death attorney will gather the facts about what happened when the accident occurred and why it occurred. These facts are then used to build a strong claim. The first step is to work to achieve a meaningful settlement. If a meaningful settlement can’t be reached, then you do have the option of pursuing compensation through a trial. You will be informed, educated, and given the knowledge that you need to make the right decisions in the matter.
