Who Can Sue for Wrongful Death?
“Wrongful death” specifically means a death caused by another person’s negligence or willful act. Following a family member’s wrongful death, next of kin, which includes children, spouses, and parents, have the option to speak for their loved one and seek damages in court.
If you are next of kin to someone who passed away in a motorcycle accident and you believe that it may have been a wrongful death, there are a few things that you need to know before filing a claim.
Will the Insurance Company Help?
The last thing you should have to worry about after a loved one has died is arguing with an insurance adjuster. Unfortunately, insurance companies know that you are in a vulnerable state and will use that to try and convince you to settle for less than you are owed.
While it may seem like a wrongful death case is cut and dry, insurance adjusters will do whatever they can to limit your recovery. Reaching out to a motorcycle accident attorney for something as simple as a free case evaluation can help to take some of the burden off of you so you can focus on what really matters: your family.
One of the benefits of working with an experienced wrongful death attorney is that they will know how to frame the conversation based on which insurance company they are speaking with.
All insurance companies want the same thing: to settle for the least amount of money possible. However, different adjusters go about negotiations in different ways. At Zinda Law Group, we know this, and we will fight for you as if you are our family.
What Can I Recover?
The purpose of bringing a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate the surviving family members and beneficiaries. This compensation can cover financial loss, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering.
These damages can help to cover the expenses accumulated from preparing for a loved one’s funeral as well as to reconcile the loss of future earnings and try and give some monetary relief to the suffering family.
Many jurisdictions include a legal provision accounting for survival actions on wrongful death cases. This means that a wrongful death claim can include damages suffered by the decedent due to the accident before death, in addition to the damages suffered by next of kin.
Survival action only arises in cases where the decedent did not die immediately after the accident. In motorcycle cases this is less common, as the highly dangerous nature of motorcycle accident makes it extremely likely that the decedent died shortly after the crash.
