Wrongful Death Lawsuits
A wrongful death lawsuit in Michigan can be filed on behalf of a deceased victim’s spouse, child, parents or grandparents. The lawsuit may seek compensation for noneconomic and economic damages that include:
- Hospital bills and related medical expenses
- Funeral costs
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of wages and other benefits
- Loss of consortium
The amount of damages that can be obtained in a wrongful death lawsuit varies depending on several factors — which is why it is crucial to have an attorney working on your behalf. We know that no amount of compensation can replace your lost loved one; however, it can help pay for accident-related expenses and help provide for your family.
Holding All Negligent Parties Accountable
A wrongful death in a traffic accident can happen for many reasons. A motorcyclist may be struck by a driver who was distracted by a cellphone, or a motorist may be hit head-on by a truck driver who was fatigued. When we take your case, we will study the crash scene evidence to determine whether these or other reasons contributed to the crash. We have extensive experience building strong cases to defend our clients.
