The Facts Behind Wrongful Death Cases And How Hiring A Lawyer Can Help

When an individual is killed due to the action or inaction of another person or business, the loved ones left behind have certain rights and may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the entity at fault.

A wrongful death claim comes about when someone is at legal fault for the death of another person. Every state has wrongful death laws, although they vary depending on which state the claim is filed.

There are many different legal reasons for filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Car accidents, medical malpractice, negligence and faulty product testing and manufacturing have all been held at fault for wrongful deaths.

Each state has a statute of limitations determining when a claim must be filed for a wrongful death lawsuit, but they are typically more than a year past the death of the victim. Surviving family members can file a claim at any time within the time limitations, and in rare cases, the time limit can even be extended.

If you or someone you know has been affected by the wrongful death of a family member, it is important to consult an attorney to clarify any questions and help in filing a claim against the party at fault. For more information, call Maus Law Firm today at 954-784-6310.


Client Testimonial

"Even when I was not able to get a physician to follow up with me for a broken bone following a car accident, the Maus firm, in particular Rocio, worked hard on my behalf and reached a good settlement for me. This was accomplished long distance, as the accident happened in Florida and I live in Indiana. They worked on my case for 3 years and did not give up."
