Why You Should File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

by Staff Blogger | July 20th, 2017

Nothing can prepare you for the death of a loved one. Even when anticipated, the shock can still shake up your entire life. That shock is magnified when a death comes unexpectedly or is caused by someone else. The term ‘wrongful death’ refers to a death brought about by the carelessness or negligence of an individual or other entity, such as a corporation or government. As a surviving family member, you have the right to seek damages from the at-fault party, and we encourage you to do so.

Here’s why.

Your loved one’s death does more than deprive your family of their companionship. It deprives you and your family of your loved one’s potential. Over the course of their lives, they would have provided valuable resources for your family that can no longer be realized. That loss of income, opportunity, and potential must be reconciled, and that’s exactly what we seek to do at Skolrood Law Firm.
