Don't hesitate to file a wrongful death claim

When a loved one dies as a result of another person's reckless or negligent actions, the survivors are often faced with a difficult decision: whether to file a wrongful death claim.

If you're in this unfortunate position, here are the reasons you shouldn't hesitate to file:

1. You need to look out for your family's financial future

A wrongful death claim may be the only way to provide the victim's surviving family with the money they need. The deceased may have left behind ordinary debts -- like credit card bills and a mortgage -- plus debts related to the accident or illness that claimed his or her life. Hospital bills, funeral costs and other final expenses can unnecessarily burden a grieving family.

If successful, a wrongful death claim can provide you and your loved one's other survivors with the financial compensation they need to move forward and create a stable future.

2. It may be the only way to hold the guilty party responsible

Was the person who caused your loved one's death criminally charged? If not, he or she may never face any consequences for your loved one's death -- unless you pursue a wrongful death claim.

Your loved one deserves a measure of justice for what happened -- and so do you.

3. You may help prevent someone else from dying

In cases where wrongful death actions are brought against corporations, the expense and negative publicity surrounding a case can often provoke changes that would otherwise never happen.

Your wrongful death lawsuit could, for example, shine a light on an industry practice inside a factory that puts all employees in unnecessary danger. The resulting publicity could force the employer -- and others in the same industry -- to make changes that improve the safety of everyone in the workforce.

If you're still uncertain whether you should file a wrongful death claim, an attorney can discuss your situation and give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.
