What Are The Types Of Compensation For Wrongful Death In Minnesota?

In a wrongful death claim in Minnesota, you may seek several types of compensation. Economic damages can include funeral expenses, burial costs, medical bills incurred prior to death and lost income that the deceased would have provided. Noneconomic damages account for the profound personal losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of companionship or consortium. We are here to help you understand how to pursue these damages to honor the memory of your loved one.

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Minnesota?

In Minnesota, wrongful death lawsuits can be filed by the surviving relatives of the deceased. This group can include spouses, children, parents, grandparents and siblings. Our attorneys are adept at navigating the legal complexities to ensure the right family members are represented and that your family’s claim is presented with the utmost respect and diligence.

How Long Do I Have To File A Wrongful Death Claim In Minnesota?

There’s a limited period, known as the statute of limitations, during which you can file a wrongful death claim. Time is of the essence, and it is critical to contact an experienced attorney as soon as you can. This allows us to preserve evidence, build a strong case, and ensure your claim is filed within the legal time limits.

How Can A Wrongful Death Attorney Help?

In the wake of a tragic loss, a wrongful death lawyer can provide the legal expertise necessary to navigate your claim, allowing you to focus on your family and the healing process. We understand the stakes and are prepared to handle every aspect of your case, from investigating the incident to negotiating with insurance companies and fighting for your rights in court if needed.

Should I Accept The Insurance Company’s Initial Settlement Offer?

It is not advisable to accept the initial settlement offer from an insurance company. These offers are typically made quickly after the incident and may not fully cover the damages you and your family are entitled to. Before accepting any offer, it is crucial to consult with an attorney who can evaluate the proposal and advocate for a settlement that truly reflects the value of your claim.
