Wrongful Deaths in Arizona
To collect financial compensation for the wrongful death of a family member, a wrongful death claim can be made by a surviving parent, child, or spouse against the responsible company, person, government entity, or any responsible party that acted negligently, recklessly, maliciously, or in such a way as to cause the death of another person.
Wrongful death claims are typically associated with deadly accidents, like bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, car accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, or accidents involving defective products.
You may be entitled to collect damages for your damages. Some damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, are ubiquitous to wrongful death claims. Other damages, however, vary from claim to claim and are based on the claimant’s relationship to the deceased. In order to understand what compensation you and your family may be entitled to, is important to have a reliable attorney on your side; one who is committed to advising and supporting you every step of the way.
