We are dedicated to assisting you in obtaining wrongful death benefits for the loss of a loved one killed because of someone else’s negligence. Our highly qualified firm is comprised of former presidents of the American Trial Lawyers Association, AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® attorneys and Board Certified specialists in wrongful death litigation.
Arizona wrongful death explained
When someone loses his or her life because of the negligence or wrongful act of another person or entity, the surviving family is deprived of affection and companionship and, in some cases, a financial provider. Close relatives may be burdened by expenses resulting from the fatal accident, as well as mental anguish at the loss of their loved one.
Under Arizona law, surviving spouses, children and parents of the deceased may recover compensation for all of these losses. If your deceased loved one could have brought a personal injury lawsuit if he or she had survived, you may also be entitled to compensation for those injuries and damages. Our accident attorneys in Phoenix can assist you in recovering compensation for a broad range of damages:
- Loss of love, affection, companionship, care, protection and guidance of the spouse or children since the time of the loved one’s death and for the future
- Loss of consortium for the surviving spouse
- Pain, grief, sorrow, anguish, stress, shock and mental suffering already experienced and likely experienced in the future
- Income and services that have already been lost as well as potential future earnings and services
- Reasonable funeral and burial expenses
- Reasonable medical expenses for injuries that resulted in death
If the actions of the negligent person or business were particularly egregious, a Phoenix wrongful death lawyer at our firm may be able to help you recover additional punitive damages, which are awarded to punish the negligent party and discourage similar acts in the future.
