A wrongful death suit may be brought on behalf of an individual who passes away as a result of another person’s wrongful conduct. Wrongful death suits arise in the context of car accidents, workplace accidents, nursing home or care home settings, and more. The victims are the family members who survive the deceased individual. A claim may be brought for the loss of a loved one as well as the pain and suffering suffered by the individual up until the time of his/her death.
The Law Office of Susan Kang Gordon has extensive experience fighting for family members who have lost a loved one due to another’s negligent and or reckless conduct.
If you are a family member who has lost someone as a result of negligent and or reckless conduct of a third party, you may be entitled to economic damages. They include, but are not limited to:
- Future financial support;
- Medical expenses;
- Funeral and burial expenses;
- Loss of household services.
Non-economic damages may be awarded for loss of love, companionship, comfort, consortium, assistance, care, affection, and support.
