A unique and challenging kind of claim in tort law is the wrongful death claim. A potential wrongful death claimant should immediately secure an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in handling wrongful death cases. Wrongful death claims are different than injury claims. Strict time limits apply to wrongful death lawsuits. Also, special rules and procedures are involved in making wrongful death claims as well as the nature and extent of the damages that can be recovered. Typically, a husband, wife, children and/or parents of the deceased may make a claim. Crews & Pesquera have successfully prosecuted many wrongful death claims.
