The loss of a loved one is devastating. To know that the tragedy could have been prevented because someone caused the loss through carelessness is even more difficult to bear. Wrongful death is when death is caused by the fault of another person or actions of a company.
Our firm will help you through this difficult time with a shoulder to lean on and the strength to deal with the many legal issues that arise. Nothing can replace the love, warmth and companionship of your loved one. However, the law recognizes that this wrong and fault must be acknowledged, and that the person or company at fault must be responsible for the harm and loss.
Minnesota realizes compensation is needed for survivors and beneficiaries for the following types of loss and harm:
- The emotional and personal losses which includes loss of companionship, comfort, assistance, protection and guidance your loved one would have provided.
- The economic losses such as loss of the loved one’s income, insurance, retirement savings and other economic losses.
- The medical and funeral expenses.
Wrongful death can occur as the result of many types of accidents. A few examples are from a large truck crash, pedestrians hit by a car, a car crash, a construction site accident.
