Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
In Massachusetts, close family members and loved ones are given priority when filing a wrongful death claim after the loss of a loved one. This includes parents of the deceased, husbands, wives and children. In certain cases, other family members and loved ones may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim, including siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins.
To find out whether you can file a wrongful death claim, please talk to one of our attorneys. We can also advise on New Hampshire and Rhode Island laws.
How We Can Help
When you have lost a family member in an accident that was the result of negligence or misconduct by a person or organization, you are entitled to fight for your rights and justice. Our lawyers can help you get the largest possible settlement or jury award money to help your family recover for lost earnings and a lifetime of emotional loss.
We handle all wrongful death lawsuit cases on contingency, which means that we pay for investigating the claim, developing the case, and negotiating a full and fair settlement. If a court trial is necessary, we use our extensive trial experience to seek a maximum jury award, including punitive damages, when appropriate. You pay attorney’s fees only if you recover money for your claim. When we meet, we will explain our fee process.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits May Also Apply
If your wrongful death lawsuit is the result of a death related to severe injuries at work, your family may also be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. We can help you file a successful workers’ comp claim, as well as represent you in your wrongful death lawsuit, as separate legal issues.
