After a wrongful death has taken place, the last thing a family feels like doing is delving into all of the details of the event and legal steps.
Wrongful death cases can flow from any of the following:
It is important to have the estate administrator appointed right away after the event, so that a legal representative has the authority to prosecute the case. This administrator will essentially stand in the shoes of the decedent.
According to the state's laws, an administrator can receive "just damages" for the expenses of the death. These damages could include the decedent's lost earning capacity, mental suffering, and monetary compensatory damages for the loss of capacity to carry on life's activities.
