Services For Clients In The Michiana Region And Throughout Northern Indiana
Litigation regarding wrongful death claims in Indiana is carefully regulated by state legislation. Under the law, the death must be directly caused by the wrongful act of another party, or the timely omission of an act that could have prevented the death from occurring. In order to claim financial damages resulting from the death, the plaintiff must prove that the death resulted in actual financial loss due to hospital or medical care, funeral and burial expenses, and lost wages and earnings of the deceased person. Except under extraordinary circumstances, wrongful death claims are restricted to the decedent's surviving spouse and children who can demonstrate the loss of direct financial support.
