The untimely death of a family member is always devastating! The grief you are feeling may be even worse if the death was caused by the negligence of another. If your loved one’s death was caused by someone else’s wrong-doing, you may entitled to compensation for your loss. While personal injury cases are brought forth by the person injured in an accident, wrongful death cases are most often brought forth by the surviving family member(s) of the victim. They are intended to compensate the surviving family member(s) for the emotional and financial loss they may experience due to the unfortunate death of their loved one.
Arizona’s statutes limit the time that a wrongful death suit can be filed. In most cases, the suit must be brought forth by the surviving parent, spouse or children of the victim. With that in mind, it is essential that you seek the advice of a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Doing so will assure that there is plenty of time to investigate the claim and make certain that any evidence to substantiate the wrongful death claim is preserved before the statute of limitations expires.
Any type of personal injury can ultimately result in a wrongful death if it is determined that there was negligent, intentional or reckless behavior involved. The following are just a few examples of injuries that sometimes result in wrongful death:
- Fatal Automobile Accident
- Fatal Motorcycle, Trucking, or Boating Accident
- Medical Malpractice resulting in Death
- Mis-diagnosis of medical condition
- Defective Product resulting in Death
- Over serving Alcohol
- Driving under the Influence of Alcohol or drugs (DUI) resulting in a death
These are only some of the causes of wrongful death. Any death that results from the wrong-doing of another can be considered wrongful death.
