The unexpected loss of a loved one because of someone else’s negligence, wrongdoing, or intentional act is a completely tragic and shocking experience. Survivors are likely to feel lost, sad, and upset. If another person or company is responsible for the death, surviving family members may be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for losses and expenses incurred. No amount of money can ease suffering or fill the emotional hole left by your loved one’s passing, but it may be able to provide a bit of closure for the injustice that occurred.
