When a tragedy strikes unexpectedly, a Massachusetts family may be left reeling. The family may find themselves facing financial peril as they lose the financial support of a loved one and incur medical expenses related to the care they received before their death. They undoubtedly will feel the emotional devastation of never being able to see their loved one again.

No legal strategy can bring someone back after a fatal accident but that does not mean that the law abandons those who are left in the wake of a wrongful death incident. Wrongful death claims are designed to give deceased individuals’ loved ones a means of reclaiming the losses they have been forced to experience due to the negligent, reckless, or criminal conduct of others.

Massachusetts wrongful death claims may not be filed by everyone and must fulfill certain legal elements to meet the expectations of the law. To avoid making costly and time-consuming mistakes during the preparation of a wrongful death claim, it may be useful to consult with an attorney.
