Loss or Injury of a Family Member or Loved One

 

When a loved one passes or is gravely injured, the effects on family members can be detrimental in numerous ways. Despite the emotionally exhaustive grieving process the affected families undoubtedly go through, there are often practical matters that require attention as well. If the death or injury of a loved one was caused by the wrongful, negligent, or intentional actions of another, family members may choose to proceed with a civil lawsuit. In particular, the family of an individual who was harmed in this manner could sue for loss of consortium.
