If a loved one was killed as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim for “wrongful death.” The Minnesota state legislature specifically created a cause of action that allows the survivors to bring a claim for their loss. This includes the loss of financial support, companionship, advice, counsel, as well as the other personal losses you suffered as a result of the death of your spouse or other relative.
There is a rule that requires that the court appoint someone to represent all of the surviving heirs and next of kin for the wrongful death claim. Our office is here to help you and your family through this emotional and complicated process. It is important that you act quickly. The law allows a limited time in which your claim can be brought. In addition, any accident, especially one that led to a person’s death, needs to be investigated immediately. The evidence that may help support your claim may not be around for long. The insurance company will have an investigator out almost immediately. You do not want to be at a disadvantage from the very beginning. If you work with us, we will hire the investigator for you.
We help you seek the compensation you and your family are entitled to for the loss of your loved one.
