Wrongful Death Lawyers in Colorado Springs, CO
The untimely loss of a loved one through the negligence or intentional infliction of harm by another party entitles the surviving family to compensation through a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death is when an individual is killed due to the neglect, wrongful act, or the default of another person, or even a corporation. When this happens, the surviving family members can bring a wrongful death claim for the same damages as the lost individual, in addition to emotional or non-economic damages that may result from the death.

The Purpose of a Wrongful Death Claim
When a person experiences life-altering, long-term injuries, they are entitled to compensation from the responsible party for all medical costs and lost income linked to their injuries. Should an individual pass due to their injuries, their surviving family is able to collect these same damages. Any medical costs are included in a wrongful death claim, in addition to the lost earnings and value of the contributions of your loved one through the remainder of their professional life.
This means that your family is able to recover the financial contributions your loved one would have made to your home. While no amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one, a comprehensive wrongful death claim ensures that you are not negatively impacted in terms of your household finances. Lost wages and future earnings are a key part of a wrongful death settlement, as well as funeral costs, and medical expenses following the accident, and in some cases, damages are available for the emotional suffering experienced by the surviving family.
It is important to recognize that in Colorado, there is a limit to the noneconomic damages available to the surviving family. However, if the death was a felony, including first-degree murder, second-degree murder, or manslaughter, the limit may be removed. Working with an experienced Colorado Springs wrongful death lawyer from Rodemer | Kane ensures that your claim follows Colorado law, and produces the highest possible settlement in your favor.
