your legal rights.
A wrongful death claim is a lawsuit brought on when someone dies as a result of the defendant's negligent or intentional act. If you are suffering from the wrongful death of a loved one due to another’s negligence or recklessness, you, as the injured party, have important legal rights available to you.
The untimely and unexpected death of a loved one can have a devastating impact on a family. The emotional pain, torment and suffering experienced as a result of a wrongful death more often than not can send a family into turmoil. Lost income, medical expenses and funeral costs only compound the emotional distress. In wrongful death cases, family members may be entitled to compensation for lost income, lost future earnings, loss of social security benefits, medical and funeral expenses, loss of companionship and pain and suffering. While no amount of financial compensation can undo your loss, the wrongful death attorneys at Chapa Law Group are here to assist with your legal needs so that your family can begin the path to emotional and financial recovery. We stand ready to compassionately and effectively represent you in court.
