A death caused by a negligent, careless, intentional, or reckless act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death. In Tennessee, if the death of a relative or spouse was caused by the wrongful act of another, the surviving family member can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party or parties. In order to file a wrongful death claim, you must be able to prove that you will experience severe future emotional or financial hardship because of the death. There are certain elements that are required for a wrongful death case. They include one, the death of the person, two, that the death was caused by the negligence of another, three, that there are surviving family members who are monetarily or emotionally suffering due to the death, and four, there must be a personal representative appointed to bring the suit on behalf of the decedent’s estate. The laws regarding wrongful death cases are complex and include many facets of law. It is vital to surviving family members to seek the advise of experienced wrongful death lawyers to protect their rights and those of their loved ones. We are experienced at conducting investigations to determine the cause of death when it is not from natural causes. We can conduct an investigation to determine who the responsible party is and then demand compensation for the family from the responsible party or parties. Although we cannot bring your loved ones back, we can at least make sure that the grieving family has the money they need to be financially stable and comfortable.
