Whenever a family loses a loved one, the experience is often emotionally devastating. While a family sometimes has time to prepare for the loss of a loved one, there are, tragically, instances in which the actions or inaction of others causes the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one. In these circumstances, the consequences that the family may have to cope with are often even harder to deal with.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding an individual’s death, their loss may not only result in emotional and psychological trauma for their family, but may also have substantial financial ramifications, including costly medical bills for treatment aimed at saving their life, loss of support from the deceased’s income, and funeral expenses. However, those who lose a loved one as a result of another person’s actions may be entitled to pursue compensation for these and other costs.
