A Wrongful Death is an unnecessary death that has been caused by the negligence of another person.  Examples of Wrongful Death cases are deaths caused by an unlawful drunk, reckless or careless driver, deaths caused by the manufacture who didn’t follow the law and make an unsafe, defective or dangerous product, or even deaths caused by a physician who fails to diagnose a treatable disease.

Colorado’s Wrongful Death Act specifies the kinds of damages that can be recovered.  Our experienced Wrongful Death attorneys can go into it deeper, but for some types of damages, Colorado Wrongful Death law provides for limits on the maximum amount of damages that can be recovered.

 

Colorado law specifies that Wrongful Death claims may be made to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided. Other damages that may be recovered by the law include:

  • Loss of support

  • Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death

  • Loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection or care suffered by the survivor of the decedent

  • In some cases, punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others

 

Under Colorado law, a survival action may be brought by the deceased person’s estate to recover expenses associated with the death such as funeral expenses and medical expenses accrued from the time of the incident to the time of death. 

Some common causes of Wrongful Death include:

  • Automobile and Motorcycle Accidents

  • Medical Malpractice

  • Defective Products

  • Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

  • Slip and fall Accidents

Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed through by family members or beneficiaries of the person who died unnecessarily.  Our Wrongful Death lawyers know that each state in the U.S. has enacted Wrongful Death laws that specifically address the rights that surviving family members will have if a Wrongful Death occurs in these dates.
