Recovering compensation after an accident.
If found not at fault for the accident, the family of the victim may file a civil wrongful death claim. Filing a claim after losing a loved one will never fill the void left by a loved one’s passing away. It is not a matter of profiting for the family left behind, but rather recovering. The recovery of damages can alleviate the unexpected funeral costs and expenses accrued when a loved one passes.
