Losing a loved one is always an emotional challenge, but losing a loved one significantly earlier than their life expectancy due to another person’s negligence or recklessness, will likely be one of the most devastating moments in your life. Although nothing will ease your pain and suffering, the wrongdoer should be held accountable for their actions and you should be compensated for your pain and suffering.
A wrongful death occurs when one person dies as the result of another person acting negligently, recklessly, intentionally, or with misconduct and commits a wrongful act, neglect, or default.
Wrongful death legal claims can only be filed by specific parties. Those limited parties include the deceased person’s surviving spouse, surviving child, surviving parent or guardian, or the personal representative of a deceased person’s spouse, child, parent, guardian, or estate. In the event the deceased person is a child, either of the child’s parents or their legal guardian may file a claim.
A claim for wrongful death is brought against the responsible party or parties in order to financially compensate surviving family members for their loss, as well as, any resulting harm they have suffered. Settlements generally range from hundreds of thousands of dollars to tens of millions of dollars, depending on the circumstances. In part, the damages awarded by a jury for a wrongful death claim may include the following:
- Pain and mental suffering
- Loss of past and future income by the deceased
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical care and services for the injuries that resulted in the deceased’s death
- Loss of love
- Loss of affection
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of care
- Loss of protection
- Loss of guidance
- Loss of past and future services by the deceased
- Punitive damages

Time Is Of The Essence!
Arizona’s statute of limitations places restrictions on how long a person has to file a lawsuit after they are injured. This is to prevent people from trying to make a claim for an injury they received after a certain period of time. Once the statute of limitations has expired, a person can no longer file a claim or attempt a lawsuit. This Arizona statute has prevented countless injured individuals from collecting millions of dollars that they were lawfully entitled to. Don’t make the same mistake.
Time is of the essence. It is imperative to contact Rack Law online or call 855-RACK-LAW (855-722-5529) before it is too late!
