A parent’s worst nightmare is to receive news that his or her child has been taken due to the negligent actions of a third party. Yet, for some parents, this is the reality that they must live with every day. Dealing with the loss of a child can be overwhelming and can trigger severe emotional distress. As a result, you may end up needing intense therapy. What’s more, you may be unable to work for a time due to debilitating grief.
If you have lost a child because of someone’s negligence, you may have grounds for a wrongful death suit to help pay your expenses and cover your lost wages. Fortunately, at Singer & O’Neil, we are here to help you, and we can fight for your rights both in litigation and in settlement discussions.
Medical expenses arising from negligent actions
If your child was involved in an accident, it is possible that you incurred heavy medical debt. Both the bills for your child’s medical treatment as well as your own expenses that are directly attributable to the incident may be recoverable in a wrongful death suit.
You should not think that you are going to be on the hook for your child’s medical expenses. Likewise, it would not be fair to hold you responsible for your reasonably necessary expenses that arose from the situation. Rather, the party who caused the situation should be held responsible, and that’s where we come in.
