At Lowe Law Firm, we understand that nothing can ever negate what you have
been through, and there is no amount of financial recovery that could

has probably led to significant financial difficulties in addition to
the immeasurable emotional pain you and your family have experienced.

death. It can also provide a much-needed sense of justice and allow you
to begin the healing process.

the death of a loved one. If you believe your family member died as a
result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions, we can help
you determine if you have grounds to file a wrongful death claim. And,
most importantly, we will help you navigate this process, answering your
questions and guiding you every step of the way.

What Makes a Death “Wrongful?”
While different state laws have slightly different wording, most laws agree
that a death is considered “wrongful” if it was the result

At Lowe Law Firm, we assist clients nationwide with all types of wrongful
death claims. We understand just how difficult this time is for you and

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Each state has different laws regarding exactly who can bring a wrongful
death claim; in some states, certain surviving family members, dependents,
and heirs can file a claim and in others, only the personal representative
of the deceased’s estate can bring a claim. That being said, in
most states, certain individuals can recover compensation for damages
they have suffered as a result of their loved one’s death. When
the personal representative of the estate must file the claim, damages
are sought by the personal representative on behalf of the eligible family
members, dependents, or heirs or the estate itself.
You may be able to file a wrongful death claim if you are one of the following
- The surviving spouse of the deceased
- The surviving child of the deceased
- The surviving parent or guardian of the deceased
- Any surviving dependent of the deceased, such as a step-child, putative
spouse, sibling, etc.
- A surviving heir of the deceased, meaning you would be entitled to inherit
from the estate
- The personal representative of the deceased’s estate
Our wrongful death attorneys can help you determine your legal rights based
on state laws and other relevant factors. We have extensive experience
and understand the various laws regarding wrongful death throughout the
Damages in Wrongful Death Claims
Again, where you live, as well as other factors present in the accident/incident
that led to your loved one’s death, will play a role in available damages.
In most cases, eligible individuals can recover the following damages in
a wrongful death case:
- Medical expenses associated with the deceased’s final care/treatment
related to fatal injuries
- Funeral/burial expenses
- Loss of love and companionship
- Loss of expected inheritance
- Loss of financial support and/or income
- Loss of the value of household services provided by the deceased
- Emotional trauma and anguish

In some cases, you may be able to also seek punitive damages. Punitive
damages are meant to punish the liable person/party when their egregious
negligence or extreme recklessness led to the death of your loved one.
They are also meant to help ensure that similar incidents do not occur
again in the future.
