At Bowen & Associates, LLC, we understand that involving the legal system in your personal matters is not high up on your priority list at this time.

Our personal injury team can help you obtain a fair and just compensation amount that may help to shoulder the unexpected costs that can arise due to the loss of your loved one.

Indiana Wrongful Death Claims

According to Indiana Code 34-23-1, wrongful death is defined as a circumstance in which death is a result of the wrongful act or omission of another. Essentially, a wrongful death claim is a personal injury lawsuit in which the victim is unable to serve as a plaintiff in the case. As the family member of the deceased individual, this statute will enable you to seek monetary damages as well as establish the defendant's liability.

When it comes to the complexities of a wrongful death claim, we encourage you against navigating the legal system alone. We know exactly how to file an effective claim on your behalf and will utilize and exhaust our resources in order to help maximize your compensation. Upon securing the representation of our firm, you can be confident that we will treat you and your family with the compassion and respect that you deserve. Our skilled trial lawyers will review your wrongful death case and investigate the cause of the accident in order to determine the liable party.

Can I file a wrongful death claim?

In the state of Indiana, these civil lawsuits must be filed by the victim's personal estate representative. There are some cases in which damages will be awarded to children, spouses, and other dependents related to the victim. If there are multiple individuals eligible to seek the damages, the court will determine how to divide the compensation. If your claim involves the death of a child, one or both parents must file a claim. In situations where the parents are divorced or separated, the parent who obtains legal custody of the child must file the wrongful death claim. If both parents are deceased, the child's legal guardian may file.

Some of the damages that you may obtain in your wrongful death case include:

  • Lost income
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost companionship
  • Hospital and medical expenses
  • Lost benefits and inheritance
  • Expenses for the funeral and burial
  • Costs related to the wrongful death lawsuit

    One of the best lawyers I have dealt with concerning family issues.
