Causes of Wrongful Death in Indiana 

Any of the above listed accidents can cause a wrongful death. But ultimately, the overarching cause is either negligence or recklessness. As attorneys, we look for evidence of these to determine causation of the wrongful death.

Is There a Deadline to File a Claim for Wrongful Death Compensation for Survivors?

There is a deadline to file a wrongful death claim for wrongful death as a survivor. Dictated by the Indiana statute of limitations, you will have a brief amount of time to file from the date your loved one’s accident took place. 

You don’t want to risk missing this deadline, as you may not be able to receive any compensation if you do. Compensation can cover:

  • Burial costs,
  • Funeral costs,
  • Loss of future income,
  • Medical expenses, and
  • Loss of benefits.

Your case may also include compensation for non-economic damages like a loss of love, compassion, companionship, consortium, and/or enjoyment. Figuring out a fair amount for these damages is difficult, because assuredly, these losses are priceless. Lean on an attorney to help determine a fair amount of money and negotiate for it on your behalf.
