  • Who is Eligible to Collect from a Wrongful Death?

    When it comes to wrongful death lawsuits, it can be difficult to know who is eligible to collect because the affected parties may not be relatives by blood or by law. There may be quite a few people close to the victim that think they may have a wrongful death suit. There are only limited instances in which a wrongful death claim can be filed. Those that are entitled to wrongful death claims include:

    • Spouse
    • Children
    • Beneficiaries
    • Dependents
  • Still unsure of your status? Contact us for a free legal consultation to find out if you’re eligible to file a wrongful death claim.

  • Types of Compensation for Wrongful Death

    While you may be the spouse, child, beneficiary, or dependent of someone that died, you may not always have a wrongful death suit. These things mainly depend on the details surrounding the death. Additionally, the personal business and finances of the deceased are taken into account when awarding compensation in a wrongful death case. The court may award compensation based on the following things:

    • Pain & Suffering
    • Medical Bills
    • Funeral Expenses
    • Loss of Earnings
    • Loss of Benefits
    • Loss of Inheritance
    • Loss of Companionship
  • Losing a loved one is hard – your family shouldn’t have to fight about money at a time like this. Contact Bradford Bucklin at the Bucklin Law Office for a complimentary evaluation of your legal claim.
