Wrongful death claim might follow fatal hit-and-run crash

Most Tennessee residents will likely agree that losing a loved one in a car accident is not something to be wished upon anyone. However, the trauma experienced by surviving family members can be exacerbated if they learn that the at-fault driver did not even stop to render aid. Such circumstances often lead to wrongful death lawsuits.

Wrongful death claims follow Waffle House shootings

When a loved one is killed by someone else, the family members are naturally extremely traumatized, and although the alleged killer may face criminal charges, the financial consequences for the family can be overwhelming. Fortunately, the Tennessee civil justice system allows surviving family members to file wrongful death claims in pursuit of financial relief. This is what some families who lost loved ones in the April Waffle House shooting are doing.

What does it take to file a wrongful death lawsuit?

When someone dies as the result of another person's negligence or recklessness, the decedent's surviving family members can take legal action through the Tennessee civil justice system. By filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the parties, recovery of damages could be obtained. Typical fatal incidences that give rise to such suits include automobile accidents, medical errors, nursing home neglect, product liability, drowning, premises liability and more.
