Wrongful Death Attorneys in N. America Canada, the United States, Mexico
Wrongful death claims need to be filed with a personal injury attorney in North America as soon as possible. Because of strict tort laws, there is often a deadline of one to three years after the incident for family members of the deceased victim to file a claim. Tort laws change from state to state and are frequently updated, causing many personal injury lawyers to focus their practice on one area of tort law. Wrongful death attorneys may file claims against faulted parties who have produced defective drugs or products, exposed the victim to toxins or poisons, or caused motor vehicle accidents. In some instances, personal injury attorneys in the United States, Mexico and Canada are able to earn punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages if the lawyer is able to prove the faulted party performed malicious wrongdoing. While money cannot make up for the death of a loved one, the money awarded is often used toward medical bills, funeral services and other accident-related financial burdens.
