Losing a loved one is always difficult, but the loss can be compounded if it occurs due to another person’s negligence. After a fatal accident, the family of the victim may have the right to seek compensation for their loss through a civil lawsuit. However, successfully presenting such a case to a courtroom can be difficult and may require the expertise of a wrongful death attorney.
A lawyer will be able to help you navigate the legal process for filing a wrongful death lawsuit. They will also be able to advocate on your behalf, which may help lead to a settlement before trial.
A wrongful death settlement was recently reached between the Cleveland Police Department and the families of two people killed as the result of a police shooting. FOX 8 News reports the details of the settlement are being kept private pending a final ruling by the probate court.
At Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, we understand the struggle that comes with losing a loved one to the negligence of another, and we’re hopeful the settlement in this case helps bring closure to the families of the victims.
