Wrongful Death Attorneys

Seeking Justice for Families Nationwide

Nothing is more difficult than losing a loved one unexpectedly; knowing that your loved one’s death could have been prevented can make the healing process that much more difficult. You need answers, and your family needs justice.

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 ever compensate you for your loss. However, the death of your loved one has probably led to significant financial difficulties in addition to the immeasurable emotional pain you and your family have experienced. A wrongful death claim can allow you to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages in the wake of your loved one’s death. It can also provide a much-needed sense of justice and allow you to begin the healing process.

At Lowe Law Firm, we can help you understand your rights and options after 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 of negligence or wrongful actions or inactions. In other words, if a death could have—and should have—been prevented, it is a wrongful death.

Wrongful death claims can arise from all types of accidents and incidents, including but not limited to:

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 your family, which is why we offer personalized care and support from start to finish.

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 individuals:

  • 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 United States.

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
  • Loss of consortium

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.
