Offering Compassionate Advocacy for Your Family

The unexpected death of a loved one is always difficult, but it can be especially distressing when the death could have been prevented. When a person is killed as a result of another party’s negligence, this is called a wrongful death. Surviving family members may have a right to take legal action on their deceased loved one’s behalf to mitigate financial and emotional damages. Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A. is ready to help you in any way possible.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Mississippi?

Not just anyone can file a wrongful death claim. Mississippi statutes specify that only certain relatives of the deceased may file a claim:

  • A personal representative of the deceased person’s estate
  • A surviving husband or wife
  • A surviving parent or child
  • A surviving sibling

A wrongful death lawsuit seeks compensation for the loss of the deceased family member – essentially, it is a personal injury lawsuit filed on the decedent’s behalf. Compensation from a successful lawsuit can include repayment for costs of medical care, funeral and burial services, loss of financial support and benefits, loss of companionship, and more.
