How can you pursue compensation after the death of a loved one?


When a loved one is killed because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person surviving family members can feel confused about what to do next. In Colorado, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed when a person is killed in a car accident caused by another driver's negligence. The lawsuit can be filed following a fatal car accident caused by negligence, or any other death caused by the negligence or wrongful act of another person. When a wrongful death occurs it is important for families to get the compensation they deserve.

Wrongful death lawsuits can result in an award of compensation for the victim's family. This compensation can help with medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of wages and future income, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and other benefits. Families deserve this money when their loved one is taken from them tragically and unexpectedly. Nothing can bring back the loss of a loved one but compensation can help a family rebuild their lives and put the pieces back together.

A wrongful death lawsuit has a lower standard of proof then a criminal case. If the person who caused the death is charged with a crime, such as murder or vehicular homicide, the state will have to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In a civil wrongful death case, on the other hand, the plaintiff needs only to prove the case by a preponderance of the evidence.

There are time limits associated with filing a wrongful death claim so it is important to act quickly. Discussing your concerns with a legal professional skilled in personal injury can be helpful.
