What is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death occurs when a person loses their life due to another individual, entity, or organization's negligent, reckless, or intentional actions. These cases can arise from various situations, including car accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, defective products, and more. A wrongful death claim seeks to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions leading to losing a loved one.
In Massachusetts, a wrongful death claim can be brought by the surviving family members, such as the deceased's spouse, children, or parents. While no compensation can truly replace the lost life, pursuing a wrongful death claim can help provide financial stability during a difficult time and bring a sense of closure to the grieving process.
What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Claim?
A successful wrongful death claim can result in compensation for various damages, including both economic and non-economic losses. Economic damages cover tangible financial losses, such as medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, lost income, and the value of household services that the deceased would have provided.
Non-economic damages address the surviving family members' intangible losses, such as loss of companionship, emotional pain and suffering, and the overall impact on the family's quality of life. While these losses are more challenging to quantify, our skilled Massachusetts wrongful death attorneys have the experience to assess the full extent of your damages and fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.
What is the Statute of Limitations For a Wrongful Death Claim in Massachusetts?
In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is generally three years from the date of the victim's death. However, there can be exceptions and variations depending on the circumstances of the case. It's advisable to consult with an experienced Massachusetts wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected and the necessary legal steps are taken promptly.
