Losing a loved one is always a painful event but knowing that your family member died because of someone else’s wrongful conduct can make it even more difficult to heal and move forward. In Idaho, certain surviving family members can file wrongful death claims for compensation when someone’s negligent, reckless, or intentional actions caused their loved one’s death.
Knowing what to do after the loss of a loved one can be complicated and overwhelming, but attorneys at Tillmann Law can help. We advocate for those who have been injured or lost loved ones because of someone else’s misconduct. We know that making a wrongful death claim will not bring back your family member, but it can provide you and your family with financial security and justice for your loved one. Contact our office online or by calling (503) 683-8113 for a free consultation with a wrongful death attorney.
The statute of limitations is the deadline by which a legal claim must be filed. In Idaho, the statute of limitations in a wrongful death claim is generally two years. However, some exceptions might apply, and there are much shorter notice requirements under some circumstances, so it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. If you miss the statute of limitations, you will likely be prohibited from filing your claim against the responsible parties.
Calculating the value of a wrongful death claim can be a complex process involving many factors. The value of your claim depends on the ongoing and future losses you have and will suffer due to your family member’s death. Our attorneys have contacts with financial experts who can help calculate your total claim value. In Idaho, recoverable compensation may include loss of financial support and benefits, loss of society and services, funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses, and other losses you and your family have suffered.
