Do you know what the term “wrongful death” means? I know what you are thinking, there is no such thing as a “rightful” death; all death could be considered “wrong” in some way or another. The term “wrongful death”, as used in a legal context, is used when death occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence or misconduct. This negligence or misconduct may have been perpetrated by another person or entity (company). These actions may have been intentional or may have been careless or reckless. There also may be more than one person responsible; death on a job site may have multiple causes; death in a hospital may also have had multiple causes (negligence of medical professional, nurse, pharmacy, or negligent decision made by administrators).
Wrongful death cases are never easy for the families of the deceased; a wrongful death lawsuit will not bring your loved one back, but it may serve to provide the financial resources to survive, financially, without your loved one. Further, it may provide closure; the at-fault party or parties will be held accountable, and hopefully, your lawsuit will provide the added benefit of reducing the chances that a similar occurrence would happen to someone else.
Each state has its own rules on what constitutes a wrongful death lawsuit, how to file one, under what circumstances it may be filed, and what damages are recoverable. Lawsuit Financial strongly advises you to consult with an attorney who specializes in this area of the law.
Depending upon the circumstances, after retaining an attorney and filing the lawsuit, you may also apply and/or qualify for a lawsuit cash advance. This is a service that provides financial assistance to people who are involved in litigation and are struggling, financially, while their lawsuits wind their way down the long, complex litigation process. Lawsuit funding is easy to apply for, and, if you are approved, you will have funds in your hands within 24-48 hours. It may be used for any important reason; spend it on final medical expenses, funeral or burial expenses, or use it to handle those monthly bills like mortgage, car payments and household expenses.
If you lose the case, you do not have to pay the money back; it is, truly, no-risk litigation funding. A financially desperate plaintiff is not a positive influence on settlement negotiations. Lawsuit funding allows you to wait out the process without having to consider a lower than full value offer from the insurance company because you need cash now. It is an important tool to consider when you find yourself in financial trouble. Maybe you don’t need us yet; you should not use the service until you do. When the time is right for legal finance services, we’ll be here for you. Count on it.
