Wrongful Death Lawyer in Colorado
Compassionate Representation for Families
Wrongful death claims are civil lawsuits that are filed to determine the liability for the death of an individual and the damage caused by the wrongful death. A wrongful death is one that caused by the wrongful acts, negligence, recklessness, or intention behavior of another person. Many of these lawsuits are brought as a result of car accidents, injuries caused by defective products, or premises liability issues. The specific damages awarded in a wrongful death case will depend on the particular circumstances surrounding the person's death.
However, damages are often awarded for:
- Lost wages that the person would have earned during their life
- Benefits lost as a result of the death (like life insurance)
- Loss of companionship, love, care, and assistance
