Losing a loved one, no matter the circumstances, can be difficult for Cleveland residents. But, when the death of a loved one is caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of another party, the unexpected death can leave surviving family members reeling from the tragedy. As they go through the grieving process, they are usually also looking for answers. In some cases, taking legal action may be an option.
A wrongful death lawsuit is a type of legal claim that allows the surviving family members of a deceased person to attempt to pursue financial compensation from the party who caused the death in question. The circumstances that lead to wrongful death lawsuits can vary widely, from motor vehicle accidents to medical malpractice, for example. Simply put, if you believe someone else is responsible for the death of your loved one, you may want to explore the merits of a wrongful death claim.
