Wrongful Death Damages

FREE Case evaluation

Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Wrongful Death DamagesDealing with the death of a loved one is always hard, but it is even harder when the death shouldn’t have happened in the first place. Wrongful deaths happen far more frequently than we may want to realize. In the United States alone, hundreds of thousands of people die each year from wrongful deaths and many do not even make it to court. Although nobody ever wants to be in the situation of dealing with a wrongful death, it is important to know what to do in trying times like these. If you or someone you know believes they have suffered from a wrongful death in their family, you may benefit from reaching out to a professional law firm, such as Cohen & Cohen, who have served Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and the surrounding areas successfully for years.

What is a wrongful death?

A lot of people get confused in regards to what qualifies as a wrongful death. In an overwhelmingly sad time, it is hard to distinguish whether or not your loved one passed because of somebody else. While every single case is different, there are a few common threads throughout all wrongful death cases. Legally speaking, in order to have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit, your loved one must have died as a direct result of somebody else’s negligence, misconduct or — less commonly — somebody else’s deliberate intention to cause harm. This, by itself, can still be a little confusing. Some of the most common examples of a wrongful death case include (but are not limited to):

  • Car, motorcycle, and aviation accidents
  • Accidents at the workplace (such as construction accidents)
  • Medical malpractice
  • Surgical injuries
  • Faulty products (such as poisoned food)
  • Criminal activity

No matter what the type of wrongful death case, the outcome is always the same: the loss of a loved one.

What are wrongful death damages?

In any wrongful death case, you may be eligible for wrongful death damages, which is usually a monetary compensation for your loss. These damages can include covering the loss of an income support, any medical expenses from the time of the accident to the death of a loved one, and even funeral expenses. Damages also cover the potential damage the death will have on the next of kin, or other family members. Wrongful death damages can wrack up upwards of hundreds of millions, depending on the case, so it’s important not to wait until it’s too late.

How can a lawyer help?

As you mourn the life of a lost loved one, you shouldn’t have to be thinking about mounting financial burdens their death may cause you and you shouldn’t be dealing with complicated legal paperwork. By hiring professional legal counsel, you are hiring an expert to help the process go smoothly and as quickly as possible. A skilled wrongful death death attorney will fight for your compensation for the damages you suffered as well.

If you any of the above conditions apply to you, do not hesitate to contact Cohen & Cohen, and we will happily set you up with a skilled attorney on our team who can help you.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
