My loved one has died. Do I have a claim?

Updated March 13, 2023.

If your loved one has died as a result of someone’s negligence, there are two types of claims. A wrongful death claim is brought by the survivors of the deceased person to recover their economic losses.

These claims can arise from many situations such as car, truck and motorcycle accidents, medical negligence, nursing home negligence, work site injuries and defective products cases.
