Types of Compensation You Can Receive
You may be wondering whether it is worth it to file a claim and whether your losses fall under what is covered. While there is no way that monetary compensation can substitute for the life of your beloved family member, it can at least help in relieving some of the financial burdens that follow.
If your loved one has been killed as a result of the negligent or wrongful acts of another individual, you may be entitled to compensation for the following losses:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earnings and income
- Loss of companionship
- Property damages
- Medical expenses
- Funeral costs
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
The state of Massachusetts is very particular in who can file a wrongful death claim. The law states that only the person who has been named as the administrator or executor of the deceased’s estate may file a claim. Usually this means that the person filing the claim is a surviving spouse, parent, or the adult child of the decedent, but if there is a will this can clarify the executor further. If there is no will, it may be necessary to have the court determine an administrator with the family first.
Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death in Massachusetts
One important detail to remember is that even wrongful death cases have a statute of limitations, meaning that there is a limited time to file a claim. In the state of Massachusetts, a person can make a wrongful death claim within three years of the date of discovery. This is not an extensive amount of time, considering how long it takes to fill forms and collect evidence. It is essential to get dedicated legal aid as soon as possible to start the claim.
