Losing a loved one is never easy, but losing a parent can put a child or dependent in an even more difficult situation both emotionally and financially. If you have lost your parents, you can file a wrongful death claim to recover damages for the loss of income and parental guidance. Learn more about your legal options in the video above.

The maximum weight of a semi-truck is 80,000 pounds, so it's not surprising that these behemoths are more likely to cause death and catastrophic injury in the event of a crash. What is surprising is the rate at which these fatal accidents occur.
Losing a loved one in an accident is devastating whether you're the parent, spouse, child or extended family. Our clients often ask if they can file a wrongful death claim after the loss of a family member, and the answer depends entirely on the circumstance. If your adult child was killed in an accident, you can file a claim as long as they were not married and didn't have a partner or children. If they did have dependents, then the spouse, partner or child would need to file the wrongful death suit.
