Death is never easy. The overwhelming nature of death is only magnified when that death is caused by a preventable tragedy. It is terrible to lose a loved one, but to lose them in an untimely manner due to the negligence on the part of someone else is inexcusable. Here at Stewart Law Group, we offer legal counsel and compassionate support to those that are grieving the loss of a loved one and looking to seek compensation for the costs that loss incurs.
It may seem difficult to even think of filing a wrongful death claim during such an emotionally taxing time, and no amount of compensation will be able to fill the void that is left by a loved one’s absence, but monetary damages can help to offset the potential economic strain that their death can cause as well as serve in a small way as a source of justice for their untimely demise.
Types of Wrongful Death Cases
For a death to be considered eligible for a wrongful death claim in the state of Arizona under statute 12-611 it must fall under the following criteria. It must be of a loved one, such as a spouse or child. Their death has caused their loved ones to suffer monetary loss in some way. And there must be proven negligence that caused the death to occur and as of such if the victim had survived would have been eligible to seek damages through a personal injury claim.
