Financial Compensation After Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is the ultimate tragedy. Death carries a tremendous weight in why it happened, the fear of the unknown and questions of who is to blame. Wrongful death takes a toll on those left behind, both emotionally and financially.

If your loved one's death was caused by another's negligent or reckless act, Cormany Law PLLC can help.

When a personal injury victim dies because of their injuries, a wrongful death claim may be filed. Many of these injury claims happen in the workplace and involve workers' compensation. During Mr. Cormany's more than 20 years as a West Virginia personal injury lawyer, he has obtained financial compensation for many such victims. He will not back down from a fight against an employer, an insurance company or a medical practitioner.

Who Is Eligible For Wrongful Death Compensation?

You need an experienced personal injury and workplace accident attorney to help you receive maximum recovery. Depending on the specific details of a case regarding workplace fatalities, those eligible for compensation may include:

  • The spouse of the person who passed away
  • Minor children of the deceased
  • Parents of unmarried adult children
  • A domestic partner
  • Grandparents responsible for a grandchild

A loved one's survivors may seek compensation for loss of income or to cover medical bills incurred prior to passing. Mr. Cormany has helped clients obtain compensation for economic and noneconomic damages that include lost income, medical expenses and funeral bills, as well as pain and suffering. Loved ones may also pursue lost retirement benefits.
