The loss of a loved one is always a tragic event. Nothing can ever replace a parent, spouse, child or sibling. When a loved one dies due to the negligence of a person or company, it is considered a wrongful death. Arizona law allows for family members to be compensated for their losses, including pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and medical expenses, as well as the loss of companionship, loss of medical benefits, and the loss of the loved one’s expected and future earnings. No one can ever replace a loved one’s support, affection and guidance, but you can at least get some assistance to help you through such a difficult time. An experienced wrongful death lawyer will understand the gravity and importance of the situation, and represents those who have lost a loved one due to negligence.
Arizona law permits a surviving spouse, child, parent, guardian, or personal representative of the deceased’s estate to file a claim for wrongful death. The estate is represented by a personal representative, who could be a parent, spouse, adult child, or in some cases a brother, sister, or other relative.
Statutes of limitation
Even though you are currently in the middle of the grieving process, you need to act quickly due to statutes of limitation, which prevent wrongful death claims once a certain amount of time has passed. Luckily, I can help you hold the negligent party accountable for the following wrongful deaths:
- Medical malpractice
- Car accident
- Truck accident
- Motorcycle accident
- Bicycle accident
- Pedestrian accident
- Construction accident
- Nursing home abuse
- Harmful medication
- Recalled prescription drug
- Defective product
You should act immediately and get an experienced attorney on your side to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death, and determine who is responsible and whether or not you have a case. Evidence disappears over time, and any loss of evidence makes proving a case much more difficult, so you cannot afford to wait. Also, do not forget that wrongful death cases must be filed within a certain amount of time after the wrongful death, or the claim will be forever barred.
