In Arizona, “Wrongful Death” is the legal term that is applied when a person who reasonably should not have died passes away. It is likely that if your loved one was killed in a car accident, their death is considered wrongful death.
In Arizona, only certain people can file a wrongful death claim. They must be:
If none of these conditions apply, a wrongful death lawsuit can also be filed on behalf of the deceased’s estate.
A wrongful death settlement is an amount of money awarded to surviving family members following the fatality of a family member. This is paid out by the insurance of the sued party, either following an out of court settlement or a verdict in court. Once damages are awarded, the surviving family members can divide the compensation among themselves.
If you’re looking to file a wrongful death on behalf of your loved one you have up to two years from the date they die to file a claim with a wrongful death attorney.
A specialized attorney will work out the total financial compensation that each unique wrongful death case deserves based on a few different factors.
