Wrongful Death Lawsuit for Victim’s Family in Arizona

When a loved one loses their life in a motor vehicle accident, and the death was caused by another driver’s negligence or other negligent circumstances, certain family members may seek compensatory damages by filing a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • Surviving spouse
  • Children
  • Parents

The wrongful death claim is somewhat similar to a personal injury claim but it is brought by the survivor(s), as opposed to the injured party. The damages that may be sought may include the following:

  • Funeral, burial expenses
  • Medical expenses – when beneficiary is responsible for or made payments
  • The survivor’s pain and suffering – mental anguish and sorrow suffered by the survivors
  • Loss of consortium – loss of love, guidance, companionship, care, protection, etc.
  • Loss of income and other economic loss – loss of projected earnings of the deceased
  • In some cases, punitive damages may be sought if the death was an intentional or cruel act

In order to determine the specific compensation that you may be entitled to, it is advisable to speak to your attorney.
