Many factors can determine what benefits your family is entitled to and who should be liable for that compensation. The victim's age and income will be considered, as well as the financially dependency of the survivors. Families may receive compensation for a number of things, including funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and a loss of companionship, among others.
Our firm works hard to investigate all wrongful death cases. We will help to determine who is at fault for the accident and what benefits should be available for the surviving family members. While no amount of money can ever truly compensate a family for such a loss, monetary benefits are the best way that the legal system has to assist that family.
