ORLANDO, FL, January 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When a family loses a loved one in an accident, more than one member will be impacted. Damages may be financial and emotional, with both short and long-term consequences, but determining what each family member is entitled to can result in discord and drive a wedge between surviving family members.
Fortunately, families do not need to determine how damages will be distributed. Damages in wrongful death
lawsuits are divided equally among beneficiaries according to the order of the probate court.
Seeking Legal Help
To ensure every member of your family receives the compensation they are entitled to, you will need a wrongful death lawyer. Your wrongful death lawyer can seek damages in these cases including:
- End of life medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Projected future earnings
- Loss of support such as financial contributions, IRAs, and insurance
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of a loved one
Your wrongful death lawyer will investigate your claim, identify all that you are entitled to, and fight to ensure maximum compensation for every beneficiary.
Potential beneficiaries in a wrongful death lawsuit include, but are not always limited to:
- Children, adopted children, and stepchildren
Every state has different regulations about who can and cannot file a wrongful death lawsuit. In some states, an executor of the deceased's estate will be appointed by the court, but the best way to determine who is eligible in your family is through a one-on-one consultation with an experienced wrongful death lawyer in your area.
Surviving family members deserve justice. Your wrongful death lawyer should be prepared to take your case as far as necessary to ensure everyone in your family is provided what they will need to recover.
