Wrongful death cases are unique because they are a large umbrella that is meant to keep the family and loved ones of victims provided for if the worst does occur. Making sure that your family gets the compensation they deserve to help continue moving forward and not have to be financially strained in a time of loss is crucial. Nelson Personal Injury looks at what a wrongful death claim is in Minnesota, how to begin a claim, and what you could be entitled to, below.
What Is A Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death in Minnesota is defined as a death that is caused by the act or omission of any person or corporation. Whether that action is negligence or intentional, if it resulted in death then there is financial compensation that can be owed to the surviving family. In Minnesota, a surviving spouse, children, parents, grandparents, or siblings of the deceased victim can bring a wrongful death case. If someone you love has recently been killed, and you believe another party was at fault, contact Nelson Personal Injury to get your claim started right away.
What To Do In The Event Of A Wrongful Death?
We understand that experiencing death is difficult. Once proper arrangements have been made, contact a professional wrongful death attorney to begin a claim. Wrongful death suits in Minnesota cover the cost of the death, as well as any loss of wages due to that injury and pain and suffering for both the deceased party and the family member who is bringing the case. While some things can’t be quantified, making sure that records of medical bills, loss of service (wages), and any other monetary documentation can help organize and strengthen your case.
Contact A Lawyer To Start Your Wrongful Death Claim
It’s important to remember in wrongful death cases that often the defendant is not actively opposing your claim, and feels deep remorse for the loss of life. The insurance that is being sued, though, will be staunch in defending how much money the suit pays out. Don’t add a legal battle to your grief, make sure that you have proper representation before starting a claim. Professional wrongful death lawyers, like those at Nelson Personal Injury, can help you get the compensation you deserve from insurance companies and handle the hassle of dealing with them.
