Nothing is more painful than losing a loved one in an untimely death, especially if caused by a preventable mistake. When someone else’s negligence causes your loved one’s passing, taking legal action through a wrongful death suit is the best way to make the at-fault party responsible for their actions.

However, going through a legal battle is usually not the first thing on a grieving family’s mind. Unsurprisingly, many families want to resolve their cases as quickly as possible, and they often ask: “How long does a wrongful death lawsuit take?”

Unfortunately, the answer is not so simple. Every wrongful death claim is unique, meaning a case can take months to years to settle. Many variables come into play, which can either shorten or lengthen the time it takes for your family to receive compensation.

Tragedy can strike at any time for family members: car accident; truck accident; work tragedy; etc.

When it does, a family member may receive financial compensation for the funeral expenses, medical bills, grief and financial losses, car wreck damages, deceased’s pain and personal injury, burial expenses, outstanding medical bills and medical expenses, pain and suffering, or loss of financial support (lost earnings) that follow the family member’s death or victim’s death.

Our law firm helps surviving family members understand wrongful death laws and wrongful death claims so that they or the deceased’s estate recover financial compensation after a tragedy like this.
