Wrongful Death Lawyer

The death of a loved one causes a lifetime of grief, especially when that loved one is taken from you unexpectedly. If you have recently lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, then you probably feel like you’re going through the motions of life and that is it. You wake up, get out of bed if you feel like it, eat if you feel like it, and you probably just go back to bed after performing a few menial tasks throughout your day.

When you want to make the party responsible for your loss pay for the damages they have caused, a Minnesota wrongful death attorney understands the pain you are going through.

What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death is when someone is killed due to the negligence of another. When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, there are four elements to each case:

  • A company or individual was responsible for the death of the victim
  • The company or person was strictly liable for the victim’s death due to negligence
  • There is surviving next of kin
  • The victim’s death has caused monetary damages.

Minnesota law requires that the heirs have a judge appointed trustee prior to the lawsuit beginning. It is the trustee’s responsibility to file for financial losses that have occurred due to the accident. These financial losses include:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Burial expenses
  • Loss of potential earnings
  • Loss of companionship, support, comfort, advice

You must talk to a wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible. Minnesota does have a statute of limitations on wrongful death lawsuits, which is that a lawsuit must be filed within 3 years from the date of death. So if an accident rendered your loved one in a coma for six months and then they died, the statute of limitations begins at the time of death.
