Filing A Meaningful Claim For Wrongful Death
The untimely or sudden loss of a family member is the most devastating event that anyone can experience. Hanratty Law Group has witnessed the traumatic impact of these wrongful death cases.

Seeking Compensation Is About More Than Money
While nothing can reverse the actions that led to the loss of your loved one, civil liability can obtain some measure of justice against the responsible party. Our attorneys recognize that your case might provide both sentimental and material value to you.
In certain circumstances, a civil suit could compensate surviving family members for their economic and intangible losses. The type and amount of compensation could depend on your relationship to your lost loved one.
For example, a spouse may obtain compensation for emotional grief and loss of consortium. A parent may be entitled to recover damages for the emotional grief due to the loss of their child. Similarly, a child can recover compensation for the loss of parental guidance and support following the accident.
Further, the estate of your loved one can recover damages for the lost wages that the deceased person would have earned in their lifetime if not for another party’s negligence. Your loved one’s funeral and remaining medical expenses are also recoverable by the estate. Above all else, compensation can support your family during this period of mourning and adjusting to life without your loved one.
