The loss of a close loved one can put stress on the entire family. In addition to the emotional toll this loss can take, losing a family member can have an enormous financial impact. Family members that relied on your loved one before their passing could suddenly find themselves having financial struggles.

If you lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of another, speak with a seasoned personal injury attorney who could help you pursue monetary compensation. A compassionate Pueblo wrongful death lawyer could handle the legal challenges you may be facing while your family focuses on the grieving process.

What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

State law defines a death as wrongful if it results from a negligent, reckless, or intentional act of another person. Sometimes, the cause of a wrongful death lawsuit is similar to that of a personal injury claim.

However, since the deceased person is unable to bring a claim on their own behalf, a wrongful death claim ensures that a surviving family member could hold the negligent party accountable for their actions. A Pueblo wrongful death attorney could help a family seek justice for their loved one by navigating them through the claims process.

Who May File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

State law establishes strict limitations on the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. As more time passes from the date of the death in question, more parties gain the right to sue.

For the first year following the accident, the decedent’s spouse has the primary right to pursue a lawsuit of this kind. If the decedent did not have a spouse, their children then have the right to file suit during the first year.

Additionally, a spouse may give consent for the decedent’s children to move forward with a claim. Should the deceased have no spouse or children, their parents have two years from the date of death to bring a wrongful death claim. During the second year following the death, a designated beneficiary of the estate also has the right to file suit. For more information, consult with a knowledgeable lawyer.

Recoverable Damages

The damages available following a claim for an untimely passing depend on the circumstances of each case. While some damages are similar to those recovered in injury claims, others are unique to wrongful death cases. A Pueblo lawyer with experience litigating wrongful death claims could assess the circumstances of a case and identify the damages to which a plaintiff may be entitled. Some common damages in this type of case may include:

  • Burial expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of companionship
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

A dedicated attorney could take the burden off of your shoulders during this confusing and emotional time.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.

Big thanks to Mr. Jake Kimbell and his team for their assistance with my case. He helped me through an incredibly challenging part of my life, and most importantly helped navigate through the convoluted legal channels of my case. I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
