Boise Wrongful Death Attorney
Nothing is more tragic than the premature loss of a member of your family due to the negligence of another person, a business or other organization. Besides the loss of companionship and affection, your loss of a loved one could mean that your family is now responsible for unpaid medical bills associated with the death, funeral and burial expenses, and years of lost income. The question remains: How can your family move forward with such pressing financial issues?
This is where the Idaho wrongful death attorneys at Craig Swapp & Associates can help. With years of experience dealing with negligent wrong death cases, our wrong death attorneys can help establish liability for the death with the insurance company, assess the financial loss, prepare the proper insurance claims, and ensure that the insurance company pays a fair compensation for your loss under Idaho law. Our lawyers at the Idaho law firm of Craig Swapp & Associates will help deal with important estate and family trust issues, so that any compensation will stay in your family’s control and not be taken by unfair estate taxes.
Who can file?
Families of wrongful death victims have a right to seek compensation from the person or group that caused the death of their loved one. Those who can file a claim include:
- Husbands or wives
- Brothers and sisters
- Children (although they typically need an adult guardian to go to court)
- Dependents (in some certain instances)
Besides injuring the deceased, a wrongful death hurts those who depended on that individual both emotionally and financially. The damages awarded from a wrongful death suit may cover:
- Funeral costs
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost and future wages
- Mental anguish
- Lost benefits or inheritance
- Lost companionship
- General and/or punitive damages
