When an individual dies as a result of actions or inactions of another,
the deceased’s family or representatives of their estate may file
a wrongful death suit to compensate for mental and/or emotional suffering,
lost wages or benefits, or loss of companionship. Trey Allen has successfully
represented his clients when such a tragic event occurs. The lawyers at
Trey Allen, P.C. are there to help their clients through this difficult time.
A defendant can be held liable for wrongful death if their conduct can
be proven to have been the cause of the death. With such proof, the span
of time between the defendant's action or inaction and the death of
the deceased is not a factor. Mitigating factors include the possibility
that the deceased was partially responsible for his or her death (comparative
or contributory negligence), or the failure of the deceased to seek proper
and timely medical care.
If fault is found, civil cases are resolved with monetary damages. These
can be awarded based on actual expenditures such as medical bills and
loss of future earnings, or on less easily quantified factors such as
loss of companionship. Punitive damages may also result, but can typically
only be awarded where the action or inaction of the defendant was grossly
negligent or even intentional.
