Any accident that happens because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing is frustrating. But when a fatal accident results in the death and loss of a loved one it is beyond catastrophic and tragic. We know and understand that no one should ever have to need a wrongful death lawyer. But if you do, our compassionate attorneys at Kasieta Legal Group, LLC, in Madison can help you start to put the pieces of your life back together again after your loss by at least trying to get compensation for your damages and loss.
Filing For A Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Wisconsin
In the state of Wisconsin, the personal representative of the decedent’s estate or a family member can file a lawsuit for the wrongful death of a loved one. Wrongful death is defined as a fatality that is caused by someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions. There is a three-year statute of limitations and deadline for filing a wrongful death claim in the state of Wisconsin. However, if the wrongful death action is based on an accident involving an automobile accident, the lawsuit must be filed within two years of the date of the accident.
Damages In A Wrongful Death Claim
In a wrongful death lawsuit a plaintiff is allowed to seek damages on behalf of their loved one when they have lost their life in a fatal accident. Damages that you are allowed to pursue include:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Conscious pain and suffering
- Loss of financial contributions
- Loss of consortium and companionship
An accident victim who died in an accident can’t file a personal injury claim, but our personal injury attorneys at Kasieta Legal Group, LLC can help loved ones to bring an action on their behalf. No amount of compensation can ever make up for the loss, but our team can hold wrongdoers accountable and fight for you to get the compensation the system permits.
