South Dakota Wrongful Death Lawyer

When a person is killed due to the reckless actions or negligence of another person, it is called a wrongful death. Wrongful deaths are always unexpected and occur suddenly. Many wrongful deaths happen during auto accidents, truck accidents, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents and even alcohol related accidents. A wrongful death can often be too much for a family to bear. All at once, they will have to contend with numerous difficulties such as funeral expenses, medical bills and financial setbacks from lost contributed income.

Due to the fact the wrongful deaths are so costly for families; there are laws in place that allow families of wrongful death victims to file lawsuits against negligent parties. These lawsuits are referred to as wrongful death claims. When families successfully file wrongful death claims, they may obtain compensation for: funeral expenses, hospital bills, lost contributed income, loss of companionship and also pain and suffering. These claims can only be filed by immediate family members, such as spouses, children and parents.
