Do I Have a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death is a legal claim that could be brought by an immediate family member of the deceased, such as the surviving spouse, parents, and children, as the result of death by the negligent or willful act of another person. Wrongful death of a loved one could happen anywhere: from someone running a red light, medical malpractice, or even simply poorly maintained premises such as an unstable staircase, rickety railings, or uneven carpeting. The common causes of wrongful death may include but are not limited to:

Damages for Wrongful Death

You should not have to suffer the financial consequences of someone’s poor actions. The type and percentage of recovery a plaintiff could get would depend on the plaintiff’s relationship to the deceased. Compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one may include but are not limited to:

  • Lost Earnings (and other loss financial support).
  • The Victim’s Medical Expenses.
  • Burial Costs.
  • Compensation for the Loss of Love and Companionship.
  • Interest from the Date of the Victim’s Death.

Our experienced attorneys understand the time sensitively of wrongful death cases. In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations to file for a wrongful death lawsuit against the parties liable is three years. The time starts running from the moment of the loved one’s death or from the time of discovery. Spouses, children, and parents are given priority when filing a wrongful death claim. If the deceased left behind no immediate family members, then brothers, sisters, grandchildren, and other relatives may file for damages.

If you or someone you know lost a family member to the willful or negligent act of another, please schedule a complimentary consultation with our compassionate wrongful death lawyers in Boston by calling (617) 934-3207.
