If someone you love passed away in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, bike accident, workplace accident, or on another person or party’s premises, your family may be entitled to make a wrongful death claim. However, your family may only have a limited time to make a claim under the law. The wrongful death lawyers at the Schmidt Law Group in Arizona can review your case, help you understand your rights, and help you with pursuing your claim to the fullest extent of the law.
In order for a claim to be filed “the individual, corporation or government entity will have engaged in negligent conduct” (A.R.S. 12-611). This simply means that the death must have occurred in a situation where the defendant failed to provide satisfactory attention and care in order to prevent injuries to others. What this means in plain English is that the party against which your family files a wrongful death claim must actually be negligent for your family member’s death. For example, negligence behind the wheel, drinking and driving, texting and driving, and other neglectful actions while driving could result in a wrongful death claim if a person passes away due to a crash. If you have questions about whether you have the right to make a wrongful death claim, speak to the wrongful death lawyers at the Schmidt Law Firm in Arizona today.
Death can be a shocking and numbing experience for immediate family and friends. The accidental and sudden death of a loved one can result in trauma and deep grief. It’s one thing to let a loved one go after a long and protracted illness or due to old age. It’s another thing entirely to lose a loved one in a sudden and accidental injury, especially if the injury was due to another person’s negligence. It is normal to feel anger, rage, despair, and hopelessness. If your family has lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of a driver, a premises owner, or another party, you may have the right to seek damages through a wrongful death claim. The wrongful death lawyers at the Schmidt Law Group in Arizona may be able to help you.
