What Are Wrongful Death Claims?
Wrongful death claims and personal injury claims often arise from the same situations. At Michigan Injury Lawyers, we handle wrongful death claims that arise from various circumstances including:
- Car accidents: Our auto accident lawyers will stand up for you if a loved one was killed in a car accident caused by the careless driving of another motorist.
- Truck accidents: If a family member was killed in a crash with a large truck in Michigan -- also known as a semi truck, tractor trailer or 18-wheeler -- you need legal advice from our truck accident attorneys as soon as possible.
- Motorcycle accidents: If a loved one has killed in a Michigan motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, funeral costs and the loss of care, comfort and companionship.
- Medical malpractice: Our medical negligence lawyers have extensive experience in medical malpractice cases involving medical mistakes that lead to death.
In Michigan, an action for accidental death can be filed by anyone in the immediate family -- spouses, children, parents, grandparents or siblings. Note: strict time frames must be met to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A cause of action for wrongful death accrues on the date of death and, generally, must be filed within three years of that date.
