What Are Common Causes Of Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death occurs when someone dies in a situation where they would have been entitled to damages from a personal injury claim had the victim actually survived the accident. These situations are typically from situations involving negligence, willful misconduct, dangerous premises, criminal acts, carelessness, defective products and more. Some examples of these accidents that may be valid for a wrongful death claim are as follows:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents
  • Aviation Accidents
  • Dangerous & Defective Products
  • Workplace Accidents & Illnesses
  • Drowning & Boating Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Accidental Poisoning & Overdoses

While there are many different types of wrongful death lawsuits listed above, this is not an exhaustive list.

Wrongful Death Claim Timelines & Who Can File In Black Forest

In Colorado, we have a very specific way of dealing with wrongful death lawsuits. Our law firm is dedicated to helping the family members and loved ones get the best possible outcome for your fatal injury case on a contingency fee basis. Below you can find some commonly asked questions about the wrongful death claim process.

The individuals that may file a wrongful death claim within the first year of the death are the spouse or the heirs with the spouses consent, children of the deceased if there is no spouse, or the designated beneficiary. During the first year, the spouse holds the primary power to start the lawsuit and may allow the children or beneficiary to join the suit with them within the first year after death, however adding them to the lawsuit is not required.

During the second year after death, the spouse, children of the victim or designated beneficiary is allowed to file a wrongful death lawsuit if it has not already been started within the first year. Parents are also entitled to damages when there is no spouse, children or designated beneficiary of the deceased person. The parents, whether still married or not, are entitled to equal shares of the damages unless only one of the parents is still alive, then they would receive the entire share of monetary damages received.

After the second year post death, the rights to file a wrongful death lawsuit are no longer valid according to the statute of limitations on these types of cases as per Colorado law. If no case is filed within two years, any cases brought after that time may be dismissed and any right to damage claims will be lost. Don’t let this happen to you, get in touch with our wrongful death attorneys right away to ensure you are able to receive any rightful damages owed to you by the at fault party of your loved one’s death.

What Damages Can Be Claimed In A Wrongful Death Case?

When filing a wrongful death suit in Colorado, there are numerous different types of damages that you may be able to receive monetary compensation for. Some of these are listed below:

  • Loss Of Victim’s Future Earnings
  • Loss of Companionship, Grief, Sorrow, Pain, Emotional Distress & Mental Stress
  • Punitive Damages (In Some Cases)

The state of Colorado allows for economic as well as non-economic damage compensation related to the death of a family member. Economic damages refer to losses that have an actual dollar value such as lost income, medical expenses, funeral expenses and expected inheritance. Whereas non-economic damages would be considered, pain & suffering, loss of guidance/companionship and sometimes punitive damages when the death was due to gross negligence and recklessness. Wrongful death damage claims are very complicated and need to be handled by an experienced wrongful death lawyer so call Rector Stuzynski LLC right away if you think your loved one’s fatal accident was caused by negligence.
