When your loved one dies due to electrocution, you may have the right to sue for wrongful death. By definition, a wrongful death occurs when a person dies as the result of a "legal fault" of another person. Certain family members have the right to seek compensation for their losses. If you have lost a loved one to a wrongful act, you should speak to a wrongful death electrocution attorney as soon as possible.

Who Can Sue For Wrongful Death

Every state has specific laws regarding eligibility to sue for wrongful death. However, in most states eligible family members include:

  • Surviving spouse or life partner
  • Dependent minor children
  • Parents of the deceased if they were unmarried or a minor

In some cases, additional family members can sue for compensation for the loss of a loved one if the deceased supported them financially. These members include:

  • Siblings of the decedent
  • Grandparents
  • Domestic partner, common law spouse or putative spouse

There may be additional family members or non-family dependents that may qualify for this type of compensation. Your attorney can determine who will qualify based on the information regarding the case.

Types Of Compensation Available

Even though the outcome of every wrongful death case is different, there are some very basic forms of compensation that is included in the case. Types of compensation include:
  • Loss of future wages and financial support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of services
  • Funeral and burial expenses

Depending on the facts surrounding the case, your wrongful death attorney may also sue for additional types of compensation.
