The unexpected loss of a loved one is a tragic event. For a spouse, child, parent or other loved one left behind, the pain can be overwhelming. When a wrongful act or omission of another caused the death, the feelings of loss are often mixed with anger, frustration and confusion.

Traffic accidents claimed the lives of 411 Minnesotans in 2010, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Nine more died in bicycling accidents that year.
Cars and trucks kill pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists every day, often due to negligent actions by the driver. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers, fatigued drivers and irresponsible drivers are responsible for many wrongful deaths. In fatal motor vehicle accident cases, an aggressive Minneapolis lawyer can be vital to protecting your interests.
Wrongful Death Claims Are Complex
It takes significant trial experience and skill to demonstrate that it was an act of negligence or omission that led to the death of your loved one. In accidents involving commercial trucks, it takes a great deal of evidence, such as federal regulations regarding driver logs, maintenance, freight distribution and medical history, to establish negligence on the part of a carrier. Bicycle accident cases are often complicated by counterclaims stating that the deceased rider was at fault. Only a knowledgeable Minneapolis injury attorney can help you protect your rights in and out of the courtroom.
Damages in Wrongful Death Cases
No amount of money can make up for losing someone close to you. Compensation in wrongful death cases serves several purposes. It helps families deal with the expenses associated with the loss of a loved one. It replaces the income that the decedent would have earned. It covers medical bills, if any, incurred because of the fatal accident. Perhaps most importantly, it makes everyone in the community safer by holding individuals and companies responsible for their negligent actions.
