Discover damages you might seek after your loved one's death

On behalf of Restovich Braun & Associates posted in fatal motor vehicle accidents on Monday, July 27, 2015.

Thinking about losing your loved one in an accident is bound to bring up feelings of fear, sadness and anger. If a fatal accident does occur because another party was negligent or reckless, it is important that you learn as much as you can about your right to seek compensation for the death.

We know that seeking compensation won't bring your loved one back. We know that any monetary award won't begin to heal the emotional wounds that you have from your loved one's death. A wrongful death lawsuit serves to hold the negligent party or parties accountable for the loss of your loved one. That thought alone might bring you comfort.

It is important for you to understand that you should begin the process for seeking compensation as soon as possible after your loved one's death. In Minnesota, there is a two-year time limit during which you can bring a lawsuit against the negligent party. In most cases, the clock starts on the day of the fatal accident or the date of death. We can help you learn which is the starting point for your case.

When you opt to seek compensation for your loved one's death, we can help you explore the damages you might seek. You may seek medical expenses, loss of future earnings, loss of companionship and final expenses as well as pain and suffering your loved one had to go through if he or she was alive after the accident. Once you know what damages you can seek, you can decide how you want to handle the wrongful death lawsuit.
