The loss of a loved one is devastating. If the death was caused by the negligence of another person or corporation, it is important to review what wrongful death benefits may be available for your family.

In Colorado, a "wrongful death" claim is a civil lawsuit that attempts to establish the liability of one person or company for the death of another. To be successful, the claimant must demonstrate that the death was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional behavior of another person or entity. Wrongful death lawsuits can include the following:

  • Medical malpractice. Medical errors are a leading cause of death in the United States.
  • Motor vehicle accidents. More than 1 million drivers – and passengers – die on America’s roadways every year.
  • Dangerous premises.
  • Work-related deaths.

In addition to medical expenses, family members of the deceased may also incur funeral expenses, loss of income and benefits, pain and suffering and punitive damages due to the negligence of the person responsible for the fatality.
