We know that there is nothing that can replace the life of your loved one, and there is nothing that can reverse the horrible wrongs that have been done to your family. However, with the right lawyer by your side, you can take comfort in knowing that the financial burden may be taken care of by the negligent party involved.
When another person's negligence prematurely takes the life of a loved one, an Indiana personal injury lawyer at Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP strives to find all liable parties and help families achieve justice. Although wrongful death events are usually accidents, at-fault parties are still liable and must be held responsible for the consequences of their conduct.
Negligence can be caused by any of the following:
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
- Nursing home abuse
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dangerous property conditions
- Motor vehicle accidents
When misconduct directly results in death from an accident, surviving family members may then pursue legal action by bringing their own personal injury wrongful death claim. Under Indiana Code 34-18-2-25, only certain parties can commence a wrongful death action, and have up to two years to file a claim.
The Indiana wrongful death laws also allow surviving family members to pursue compensation so that the financial burden does not cause unreasonable suffering. With our professional resources and expert contacts, we know how to determine the cause of your loved one's accident, establish negligence, and prove that your loved one's death is the direct result of a liable party's misconduct. We have represented thousands of cases on all levels of state and local courts and we can pursue the maximum compensation for your family, including:
- Attorney fees
- Intangible damages
- Funeral and burial costs
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income
- Loss of companionship
Few things can be more emotional and painful than going through the loss of a child. For some, the intense feelings of grief can be similar to experiencing physical pain. The state of Indiana statutes recognize the rights of parents to recover for the death of their child. In the event that your child is killed due to an act of negligence or misconduct, we can be trusted to aggressively represent you and your family to make certain you receive the compensation that you need to recover after such a tragedy.
Indiana courts allow these individuals to pursue compensation for a wrongful death of a child:
- A legal guardian
- The father and mother jointly, or either of them
- In the case of divorce or dissolution of marriage, the custodial parent of the child
