Wrongful deaths include any fatalities that occur due to the negligence of another person or entity. In 2017, almost 169,936 accidental deaths occurred in the United States, according to June 24, 2019 edition of National Vital Statistics Reports.

Some of these accidental deaths could qualify as wrongful deaths in Arizona, which occur when a wrongful act, negligence, or recklessness leads to death. Another way to look at the definition is to consider if the person who passed away—had he or she survived—would have filed a personal injury claim. Arizona law allows close loved ones to file a wrongful death case on behalf of the deceased to pursue damages related to their loss.

You can rely on a wrongful death accident lawyer in Glendale, AZ, from Zanes Law to help with your case. Call us today at (866) 499-8989 for a free consultation so we can begin reviewing your case.

Understanding a Wrongful Death Claim

With a wrongful death claim, loved ones of the deceased person seek justice for their loss. Sometimes, a wrongful death claim may follow the results of a criminal trial. Other times, the family may choose to file the wrongful death claim before any criminal proceedings. Wrongful death claims are civil actions and can be pursued regardless of whether the liable party was charged with or convicted of a crime.

Parties Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death claim

Multiple people who were close to the deceased person have the right to file a wrongful death claim, including the deceased person’s:

  • Spouse
  • Life partner
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Guardians
  • Siblings
  • Grandparents

Additionally, anyone who is financially dependent on the deceased has the right to bring a wrongful death claim.

Should the deceased have no living relatives, a personal representative may bring the suit on behalf of the deceased’s estate. If multiple family members are going to be part of the claim, the personal representative can act on behalf of all the family members together.

With Zanes Law on your side, you can spend time with your family while a wrongful death accident lawyer handles the negotiations. Call us today at (866) 499-8989 to get started.

Potentially Recoverable Damages in a Wrongful Death Action

If you are eligible to receive damages in a wrongful death claim, you may receive payment for any or all of the following depending on the specifics of your case:

  • Funeral costs
  • Burial costs
  • Other costs related to the death
  • Costs related to medical treatment after the accident
  • Loss of the loved one’s financial contribution to the family
  • Loss of rights to an inheritance
  • Loss of property
  • Emotional trauma and grief for the family members
  • Pain and suffering the loved one may have suffered in the accident
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of companionship

If the case goes to trial, jurors under Arizona state law are instructed to issue damages that they deem to be fair and just. Ultimately, the actual damage amount you may be able to recover in a wrongful death lawsuit will depend on the facts in your case.

How Wrongful Death Occurs

Multiple types of accidents could result in a wrongful death. Some specific situations may include:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents with a motor vehicle
  • Bicyclist accidents with a motor vehicle
  • Workplace accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical misdiagnoses
  • Improper administration of medication
  • Slip and fall accidents after improper maintenance of a building or property
  • Defective products
  • Acts of neglect in a hospital or nursing home
  • Acts of violence
  • Accidental poisoning

These examples do not list every potential cause of wrongful death. A situation in which another person failed to prevent an accident that leads to death can be considered negligent, as well. Your wrongful death attorney in Glendale can help you determine the next steps that may be available to you following your loved one’s accident and passing.
