When a person’s death is caused by the negligent, careless, or intentional behavior of another, it may be appropriate to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Families of wrongful death victims can receive financial compensation for all kinds of damages, to include, lost earnings of the deceased, loss of future earnings that the deceased would have earned, loss of comfort, loss of companionship, funeral and burial expenses, past medical expenses, and loss of opportunities. There is no question that money will not bring back your loved one and that any family with a wrongful death case cannot ever achieve fair compensation. However, filing a wrongful death law suit may place the family on firmer financial footing going forward. The Law Offices of Jeffrey R. Bloom feels that these cases also help hold negligent parties accountable, thereby, serving a meaningful benefit to society at large.
