Wrongful Death Lawsuits
According to the National Safety Council, someone dies as a result of negligence every five minutes. While fatal, unexpected accidents are almost always devastating to surviving family members, the feelings that develop if the death could have been prevented may be that much stronger. While compensation will not relieve the sadness and grief you feel of losing a child, partner, or relative, monetary compensation can often be a starting point to relieving the stress that unanticipated financial burdens have placed on you.
How a Colorado Wrongful Death Lawyer Can Help
You will likely be facing mounting bills from funeral or burial costs and medical expenses related to the death at the same time that you are attempting to cope and process your loss. Additionally, if you are suffering a loss of a partner or spouse and that individual was the primary wage earner in your household, you may wonder how you will be able to support yourself or your children. In these instances, you may wish to contact a Colorado wrongful death lawyer who can help you seek damages to which you may be entitled, including:
- Funeral, burial, or medical expenses
- Loss of benefits, medical coverage, or pension plans
- Loss of consortium
- Damages for the surviving family’s pain, mental anguish, and suffering
- Loss of society, love, and companionship
- Loss of advice, training, guidance, care, nurturing, and protection
- The value of services and goods that the victim would have provided

A wrongful death lawyer can assist families in establishing the liability of the responsible party, as well as help loved ones recover the compensation to which they are entitled.
