Certain actions must be taken immediately when a family member is killed due to someone else’s negligence.
A Wrongful Death estate must be opened immediately and an experienced personal injury attorney retained to investigate the potential for bringing a claim against those responsible for the loss. Pursuant to Indiana Code 34-23-1-1, 34-23-1-2 and 34-23-2-1, those left behind are entitled to receive compensation for loss of love and companionship, financial support, medical and funeral bills. The loss of a loved one is a difficult time, but I would caution you not to wait until things “settle down” before retaining an attorney experienced in handling wrongful death claims.
