The sudden loss of a family member is incredibly difficult, and the financial burden on top of emotional grief can feel overwhelming.  

David L. Sullivan understands. The personal injury attorney can represent you in a wrongful death lawsuit so that you can recover damages for your loss. Go to to learn more.

What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Under Mississippi law, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit if their loved one's death resulted from another party’s fault or negligence. This includes:

  • An accident due to negligence
  • A defective and dangerous product
  • Unsafe food, drugs, and other products
  • Medical malpractice

Who Can File?

The spouse and children of the deceased are typically the first in line to file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, depending on the situation, other relatives such as parents, siblings, or even grandchildren may also be eligible. An experienced legal team can help you determine who has the legal right to file a lawsuit in your specific case.

What Damages Can Be Recovered?

Wrongful death lawsuits are not about criminal punishment. Their goal is to provide financial compensation to surviving family members who have suffered losses due to their loved one's death. This compensation can include:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Lost income the deceased would have earned
  • Loss of companionship and household services
  • Cost of property damage related to the death

How Can David L. Sullivan Help?

One of the most important elements in a wrongful death lawsuit is to prove the negligence or breach of duty of the defendant, and that this negligence or breach of duty has led to the death of your loved one. Your lawyer will work with you in gathering evidence and witness testimony to convince the court that wrongful death has occurred.

The case may also be settled with an insurance company. In such instances, you need the help of your lawyer to make sure you get the right compensation in a smooth and timely manner.
