Delaware law permits a lawsuit for the benefit of the surviving spouse, parent, child and siblings of someone who died due to the negligence of another. The 10 Del. C. section 3724 details what the lawsuit may claim.
Claim of Deceased's Estate
In addition to the wrongful death lawsuit, the Estate may bring a lawsuit at the same time for the pain and suffering of the deceased, and for any difference in the value of the deceased's assets had the deceased lived a full life.
Proving Economic Losses
In order to prove economic loss it is usually necessary to work with a Forensic Economist. Delaware law is very particular as to what can and cannot be claimed. Future losses must be reduced to present value by an economist.
Know Your Legal Rights
It is important to know your legal rights. Winning a lawsuit is hard work. Under the law, an injured victim must prove their injury, lost wages, and medical bills. Without the necessary proof you will not be compensated. To be successful, your lawyer must commit to your case.
Commitment means taking the time to do it right. We make that commitment. Randall Robbins is a former Deputy Attorney General of the Delaware Department of Justice.
