The number of fatal accidents in Arizona is very high, and this includes Phoenix and the surrounding areas. The impact of a fatal car accident doesn’t only cause the untimely death of a victim, but severely impacts the lives of their loved ones such as friends and family. According to the Arizona law, the family of a deceased accident victim is entitled to demand compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit especially if the accident that claimed the life of their loved one was caused by negligence of another driver. The Attorneys For Freedom are experienced in fatal auto accident cases. Our lawyers can help you file a lawsuit to seek for compensation you are entitled to after the death of your loved one. We will review of your case free of charge and explain to you the options you have.
FAMILY LAWSUIT TO CLAIM WRONGFUL DEATH OF THEIR LOVED ONE
If a friend or family member dies as a result of a car accident and it’s proved that negligence of the other driver caused the accident, certain members of the family have a right under the Arizona law to file a wrongful death lawsuit to demand payment of damages. It’s important to note that it’s only the following members of the family who are allowed to file a lawsuit:
- Spouse to the deceased
- Children of the deceased
- Parents of the deceased
There are some similarities between personal injury claim and a wrongful death lawsuit. While both of them work towards the goal of obtaining compensation, survivors are the ones who file the wrongful death lawsuit because the victim is deceased as opposed to injury claim where the victim personally files the lawsuit.
THE DAMAGES THAT SURVIVORS HOPE TO ACHIEVE FROM A FATAL ACCIDENT LAWSUIT INCLUDE:
- Financial assistance to cater for the funeral and any other related burial expenses.
- Reimbursement of money spent on medical expenses before the victim passed on.
- Compensation for the metal anguish, sorrow and pain suffered by survivors as a result of the death of their loved one.
- The loss of love, guidance, companionship and protection.
- Compensation to cater for financial and economic losses as a result of the demise of a loved one. This also includes projected income of the deceased.
- Punitive action to be taken against the offender especially if the accident was caused intentionally or it was as a result of a cruel act.
