When a family suffers the wrongful death of a loved one because of someone else’s carelessness, the fact that the loss was avoidable and unnecessary only worsens the pain. Most families — especially in Buffalo — face serious financial questions following an unexpected death. At a time when the family is already grieving, they’re also asking “How can I pay the mortgage without my spouse’s income?” or “Who’s going to help take care of the kids?”
While no amount of money can replace a loved one, you can make a claim to assure that your family has the financial means to cope with the aftermath of wrongful death. Surviving family members have the right to make a claim for their economic losses. These include lost income, funeral expenses and even some less tangible items such as loss of parental nurturing and guidance.
