The term “wrongful death” is commonly used to describe two different actions: survival action and wrongful death action.

These terminologies are often misused. If you think you might have a claim, your best bet is to talk to a trial tested personal injury lawyer – for free. Contact Warshafsky law now.

Survival action: brought by the decedent’s estate representative to compensate for the victim’s damages from initial injury to death; includes pain and suffering, medical expenses and loss of wage.

Wrongful death action: brought by specific beneficiaries to compensate for medical and bereavement expenses, loss of companionship, financial support and inheritance.

When people choose their Wisconsin personal injury lawyer based on the endorsement of a football player or actor, they risk choosing an attorney who has never won more money in a courtroom. Settlement mills forward your paperwork and take a cut of your damages.

3 TIPS for best outcomes in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

  1. Hire an experienced wrongful death attorney, and beware of lawyers who tend to settle quickly – it is about the money.
  2. Understand what you can be compensated for: Monetary compensation can extend beyond medical, funeral and burial expenses – you can receive financial loss compensation (lost wages) and loss of companionship (up to $500k) benefits in a successful claim.
  3. Act fast and keep documentation to bring a claim – there is limited time for you to file a lawsuit, and retaining medical and bereavement bills will help ensure proper wrongful death settlement.
