Most people in Massachusetts expect and hope that their loved ones will live long, fulfilling lives. Unfortunately, sometimes a person’s life is cut short due to the negligence or recklessness of another. For example, car accidents, workplace accidents, defective products and medical malpractice could all cause a person to die before their time is due, causing their loved ones left behind to experience a great deal of grief.
Unfortunately, this grief also comes with a financial cost. Funeral and burial expenses must be paid. There is the loss of companionship to cope with. In addition, if the victim incurred medical expenses before passing away, these must also be addressed. And all of these costs may be compounded by the loss of income the victim provided.
When a person loses a loved one due to the actions of another, their focus should be on coping with the grieving process, not worrying about the financial implications of their loved one’s death. This is when it might be appropriate to consult an attorney to learn more about filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
