The death of a loved one due to someone else’s negligence or mistake is a sudden, drastic change. One moment, your loved one was there, walking around your home, and having conversations with you. The next, they are absent from your lives. Wrongful deaths can occur in many ways—auto accidents, medical malpractice, corporate irresponsibility, deaths in the workplace, and more.
On top of the emotional heartbreak that results from this death, family members often struggle to fill the gap left in their household. Your deceased family member may have been the primary breadwinner for the family, leaving the home in financial upheaval. They may have been responsible for child care, or other responsibilities that no one else can manage.
