Wrongful Death Of A Child Attorney
No amount of money in the world will be able to make up for the loss of a child. However, this does not mean that you should suffer financially as well as emotionally due to the wrongful death of a child. Because a child does not have a steady income and does not contribute economically to the family, it can be difficult determining the best financial compensation for the situation. At McEwen & Kestner, PLLC, we will not only work to get you financial compensation for your loss, but we will also provide justice and the answers to those unresolved questions surrounding your child’s untimely and tragic death. If you have lost a child due to the negligence of someone else, then contact McEwen & Kestner, PLLC today.
Wrongful Death of a Child
There are a number of accidents that can result in a tragic wrongful death of a child lawsuit. This can include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective product accidents
- Drinking and driving car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents, bicycle accident and other vehicular accidents
- Burns and explosions
- Poison control
- Childcare neglect
- Electric shock injury
- Speeding car accidents
- School bus accidents
Coping with the Loss
Everyone deals with tragedy differently. It is important that you do whatever it takes to move forward to a positive future. While some parents will take months, if not years off work to grieve, others may want to return to work as quickly as possible to numb the pain. Financial compensation for the loss of a child can ensure that you are able to take time off work without worrying about a loss of income. Compensation can also pay for medications, therapy sessions and any other recovery method you may need during this difficult time.
Loss of an Adult Child
Just because they are not in diapers anymore does not mean that an older child is not still your baby. If your grown up son or daughter has faced a wrongful death, you may be able to claim financial compensation if you are his parents, adoptive parents or legal guardians and he has been contributing to the household. You may also be able to file for pecuniary losses which include the loss of advice, care, comfort and companionship.
In many instances, a wrongful death suit will have criminal implications. A doctor facing medical malpractice may lose his license to work; a drunk driver may be facing criminal vehicular manslaughter and end up in prison; a negligent school bus driver may be facing hefty fines. Seeing the killer in prison may provide some justice but it does not pay the medical bills or bring back your baby.
