A Compassionate Wrongful Death Lawyer Can Help Your Family
The death of a loved one can cause significant grief and a number of struggles that your family carries for the rest of your lives. Making difficult matters even worse is when a loved one’s death was caused by the negligent or intentional acts of another and could have been prevented. A wrongful death attorney at our Jackson, MS, practice can file a lawsuit on behalf of victim’s family members against the at-fault party to seek compensation. At Owens Moss, PLLC, we understand that no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one. We want to help you in securing compensation that will at least ease the financial stress and anxiety that survivors endure as a result of unforeseen expenses and loss of familial income.
What Types of Wrongful Death Claims Can Be Filed?
A wrongful death claim is brought by the surviving family members or loved ones of a victim killed as a result of another person or entity’s negligent behavior, or intentional act. This therefore encompasses a wide-range of incidents, including accidents, professional misconduct, defective products, and assault. Specific examples include:
- Aviation accidents
- Automobile accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Train accidents
- Defective drugs
- Medical malpractice
Our firm can help you hold responsible parties accountable. We can gather evidence, work with experts and witnesses, and pursue all avenues to help you recover from your loss and prevent other families from having to face the the same fate.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
The state of Mississippi allows multiple parties to file a wrongful death claim, including:
- A surviving spouse of the deceased person
- A surviving parent of the deceased person
- A surviving child of the deceased person
- A surviving siblings of the deceased person
- The personal representative of the deceased person's estate
We can help all parties to establish their right to file a claim and guide you through every step of the process.
What Damages Can I Win?
In Mississippi, wrongful death damages are paid either to the estate, or to the loved-ones directly, depending on the type of loss. Compensation the grieving may receive reflect both economic and non-economic factors, such as medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, lost earning power, loss of companionship, and punitive damages.
