Was your loved one killed in an accident? Our personal injury attorneys are here for you.
Some of the most difficult cases our firm handles is wrongful death. We understand that during times like this, there is an emotional and physical toll that goes beyond other cases. These are especially challenging times for the victim’s families and often involve other physical injuries among the survivors of the accident. We cannot emphasize how important these cases are to the victim’s family and the amount of diligence that goes into our work on these cases. Our goal is to help you recover and begin the road to recovery.
Losing a loved one is devastating, but losing them to someone else’s negligence or carelessness is even more overwhelming. The Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com is here to provide compassionate legal counsel to the victim’s family and to make sure that financial compensation is fairly rewarded. These claims have a few things in common with other personal injury claims in that we must answer two questions, to begin with: how did the accident occur? Who is responsible?
However, there are several unique aspects to a wrongful death suit that are not covered in other personal injury claims due to the death of the victim. There is the question as to whose claim it is; the spouse, children, or another relative? How do you calculate wages lost? Another part that differs from a personal injury case is that the injured person can recover “pain and suffering”. In wrongful death suits, we cannot recover the grief or sorrow that you have tragically suffered. We understand that monetary compensation cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help to ease the pain of their passing. The Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com is uniquely experienced in handling these cases and have years of expertise and experience that we can put to work for you.
There are four parts of recoverable damages under Idaho Law. The items that may be considered are:
- The cost of burial/funeral
- Medical care and expenses incurred prior to the decedent’s passing
- The value of the decedent’s companionship
- The financial support of the decedent
Also under Idaho law, there are only a certain few people who can bring a lawsuit forward. It is stated that only heirs to the decedent can bring the suit forward. This usually applies to spouses, children, parents, or stepchildren but can also be other distant relatives if they can provide proof of financial dependency.
