If your loved one died in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of their life. If the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, you may be able to file a claim for wrongful death against that person’s insurance company. You may also be able to claim compensation for the death of a child if the deceased person was the driver of the other car. If the accident was caused by negligence, you may also be eligible for this compensation if you were the child’s guardian at the time.
Whether the death was caused by a drunk driver, an unlicensed driver, or an unscrupulous business, you may be eligible for a wrongful death lawsuit. Even if the wrongful death occurred due to negligence of another party, a personal injury attorney may be able to help you obtain a settlement. Compensation for death in car accidents can be as large as $500,000.
Although the wrongful death claim process is often complex, the amount of compensation available for a wrongful death case is significantly higher than it is for a personal injury claim. The amount of compensation available for a wrongful death claim will depend on the occupation of the deceased person, as well as the loss of future earnings. In addition to the loss of income and future earnings, your loved one’s companionship and support may also be worth compensation.
