Colorado Wrongful Death Laws
In Colorado, the right to file for a wrongful death lawsuit is reserved for a surviving spouse within the first year of their death. However, the deceased’s heirs may join with the spouse if the spouse gives written consent. If there’s no surviving spouse, the heirs may file the lawsuit. If there’s no spouse or heirs, the loved one’s parents have the right to bring a lawsuit. With a wrongful death lawsuit, funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of earnings, loss of services, pain and suffering, and emotional loss are all recoverable damages. And, if it’s found that the responsible party was reckless, wanton or willful, punitive damages can be recovered too. An experienced wrongful death lawyer will know when this applies to your case and will ensure you get the maximum compensation for your loss.
Wrongful Death Personal Injury Claims
In a wrongful death, those who were close to the deceased are affected in many ways and can legally seek compensation for their losses by filing a wrongful death personal injury claim. Our attorney team understands the wrongful death lawsuit process and can explain it to you thoroughly when you first call our Colorado law office. While the future seems bleak, with legal help by your side, you can obtain what is rightfully yours.
