Wrongful death damages may be appropriate after fatal accident

The most important aspect of our lives is the relationship we build with friends and family members. While those relationships will not last forever, it’s really difficult when they are cut short prematurely due to a loved one’s fatal accident. Getting the news that a family member has died suddenly in a fatal accident can be devastating. Finding ways forward after suffering such a horrific loss is important for those who were left behind.

That’s where filing a wrongful death suit comes into play. A wrongful death claim alleges that negligence was present that contributed to, or caused, a person’s fatal accident.

There are many ways to be involved in a fatal accident, however, car accidents, medical accidents and work accidents are just a few ways a person can be involved in a fatal accident in which wrongful death suits may follow. These have to be sought out, and there is often a statute of limitations with how long a loved one has to file a claim for wrongful death.

At Killackey Law Offices APC, we know how stressful and how emotional a time this is for those left behind after a loved one’s fatal accident. We empathize, and our team is here to help. Likely, wrongful death suits are all new and can be confusing.

Our hope is to bring clarity to the process to help a family make the best decisions after suffering the loss of a loved one.

Finding your way through a tough time after the loss of a loved one is no easy feat. However, if you focus on the future and finding a way to be resilient after a loved one’s death, you will find strength and hopefully a solution that sets up the best possible outcome for the future. Wrongful death damages can certainly play into that.
