The death of any family member or close friend is a very painful experience, and is made worse when the loss resulted from the bad actions or negligence of someone else. Arizona courts allow family members to make financial claims if the death of a loved one has been caused by the misconduct or negligence of someone else, whether acting as an individual or on behalf of a company or other organization.
It is important to know that there is one claimant for all of the heirs in a wrongful death case, and one claimant for the Estate. These may or may not be the same person.
Wrongful death lawsuits are complex and must be prepared carefully in order to succeed. And, although the grieving process cannot be changed, it's important that claims be filed within certain time limits.
