Accidents can and should be prevented.
While we acknowledge accidents occur each day, we also know the reality is they often could have been prevented. Many accidents have tragic consequences that were avoidable or unnecessary. If an individual or business owner could have been more thoughtful and responsible in the upkeep of his or her home or business and was not, and that negligence caused an incident so serious as to kill your loved one, that person should be held accountable for such carelessness.
The last thing you may be thinking of when faced with an accidental death is to seek compensation for your loss. Although nothing will ever diminish your loss, you deserve to have certain expenses taken care of, such as medical and funeral expenses, and compensation for the loss of financial support and income that you would have received from your loved one. In addition, the law requires the person or entity that wrongfully caused your loved one’s death to compensate you for the loss of that person’s love and companionship.
