At Willoughby Shulman Injury Lawyers, we understand there are few experiences more devastating than the loss of a loved one. Worse still is when that loss is due to the negligence of another and could have been avoided. We are sensitive to the grieving process and do our best to navigate the legal process without causing additional stress or burden to surviving family members.

Wrongful death cases occur in any situation where someone loses their life due to another person’s or business’ action. This includes a death resulting from an automobile accident, a slip/trip-and-fall, a defective product, medical malpractice, or any other negligent or willful act.  A wrongful death claim is intended to make the party or parties responsible for the death pay for the losses of the victim who was killed, as well as the losses of the family members who were left behind.

The administrator of the deceased’s estate and the deceased’s close family members can bring wrongful death cases. Under Nevada law, certain family members can recover for his or her own grief or sorrow, loss of probable support, companionship, society, comfort and consortium, as well as damages for pain, suffering or disfigurement of the decedent. The estate can recover punitive damages, medical expenses and funeral expenses.

It is always difficult to determine exactly how much compensation is appropriate in a wrongful death case. Placing a value on a human life is challenging in any situation. Factors to be considered include the relationship between the family member bringing the claim and the deceased, as well as the loss of financial support that the deceased victim would have provided to the family members left behind. Also important is the conduct of the person or business at fault.

At Willoughby Shulman Injury Lawyers, we will help guide you through this complicated process and give you the representation you need and deserve during this difficult time.
