Understanding Your Rights After a Wrongful Death in Michigan

The passing of a loved one is devastating for the victim’s family and close friends. When that death is due to the negligence or carelessness of another individual, business, or party, the loss is even more tragic and senseless because it could have easily been prevented, had the negligent party acted responsibly. Michigan law allows a representative of the surviving family member(s) to bring a wrongful death action against a negligent party for damages.

Eligibility and Process for Wrongful Death Compensation

There are many examples of how you may be eligible for payment because of the wrongful death of a loved one. A wrongful death claim requires that an estate be opened in the appropriate county prior to filing a lawsuit or settling a claim. These are issues that our experienced lawyers at Bashore Green Law Group deal with every day, working with clients throughout southeastern Michigan and around the state. Our wrongful death lawyers will assist in opening the estate and achieving fair and just compensation for the family members and loved ones of a wrongful death victim.

Time Constraints and Legal Advice for Wrongful Death Cases

Michigan law has strict time constraints on when a wrongful death case may be brought, but it depends on both the type of negligence and when the estate is opened. It is important to have all the details available upfront so we can provide advice for you and your family based on the law.

Securing Your Family's Future After a Loss

We know that there is no amount of money that will ever bring your loved one back, but our clients recognize the value and importance of pursuing a claim to not only recover damages. The collection of compensation can also, send a message that such behavior will not be tolerated. While financial concerns are often the last thing a family wishes to think about during this time, Bashore Green Law Group’s lawyers consider it our responsibility to do what is needed legally to ensure the family’s future well-being. Nobody should have to deal with the stress of financial debt and concerns about how to provide for a family that has been emotionally and financially devastated while grieving the loss of a loved one.

What Does a Wrongful Death Suit Cover?

Compensation for the Aftermath of a Tragic Loss

  • Damages for funeral costs
  • Medical expenses prior to the death
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Emotional suffering of the victim’s loved ones

Ensuring Financial Stability for Grieving Families

The legal system cannot restore life to how it was prior to the occurrence, but it can help families get through tough and tragic times by ensuring they are financially equipped to handle the death expenses and the change in circumstances. A responsible party should not be allowed to escape without some type of compensation to help a family who has been devastated by the death of a loved one.
