Today we look at part 4 of our 6 part series on wrongful death and explore the reasons why you might want to sue for wrongful death after losing a loved one.
Why Sue For Wrongful Death?
When a close family member dies without warning, the physical, emotional and economic strain to loved ones left behind can be overwhelming. You find yourself making decisions you never expected, and the costs mount quickly.
Funeral expenses alone can add up quickly. Typical costs include the casket, ranging from $2,000 to $10,000, a burial plot or ashes niche, funeral home services, the cost of flowers, music and an officiant for the service, plus the cost of food and drink at a reception afterward.
