When should I file a wrongful death lawsuit?

When a person passes away from someone else’s mistakes, his or her loved ones may be emotionally devastated. Sadly, they may also suffer financial difficulties due to the great costs associated with funeral arrangements and the possible loss of the deceased’s income. While it may be difficult to think about taking legal action to pursue compensation for these expenses at a time like this, there are limits to the amount of time that surviving family members have to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In Wisconsin, this limit is set at 3 years, in most instances, from the date of passing.

While no amount of compensation can replace the person you lost, a successful lawsuit may provide you with much needed financial support. Let an knowledgeable attorney manage your wrongful death claim and help you pursue the compensation you need.
