Jason Casey

As an accident victim and single father in dire need of help and at the end of my rope, somehow a gentleman named Jonathan contacted me today about my accident, and within few minutes of our conversation he had calmed me down from a 10 to a 5 and took a load of stress, anger, fear, anxiety, depression and being lost off me 50% and helped me see light at end of a dark tunnel. Thank you Jonathan.

I have to say that I am very pleased with how Hensley handled my case. They were really quick about getting on my case and getting me a settlement. They didn't delay at all. My car accident lawyer, Phil, was amazing. He got me everything I deserved. I've already recommended Hensley to a friend who needed a good car accident attorney. I recommend that you call them, ESPECIALLY if the insurance is giving you a hard time like they tried to do to me.

I was in an accident involving three totaled vehicles and ultimately one fatality. I’d never been in a situation like this before and didn’t know where to even start. So glad I called Hensley! They were so easy to work with and I’m sure got far more for me than I would’ve been able to get myself. They were kind, professional, and got the job done!

Do You Have a Wrongful Death Case?

A death is wrongful if it was caused by a wrongful act or “omission of another.” Wrongful death claims often look like personal injury claims and may involve the same type of incidents, like slip and falls, abuse and neglect at nursing homes, or car accidents. Except in a wrongful death claim, the victim of negligence has tragically passed away.

According to Indiana law, if a person dies as a result of a personal injury accident, the spouse, children, parents, or the estate of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim in the name of their loved one. In general, a wrongful death lawsuit assumes that:

  1. The victim passed away due to the negligence of another
  2. The victim left loved ones behind
  3. Their loved ones suffered emotional and monetary losses due to the victim’s passing

What Damages Can You Recover in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

At Hensley Legal Group, we understand that reducing the loss of a loved one to a dollar amount is impossible, not to mention insulting. The last thing you should have to worry about is how to afford funeral costs. Yet, a wrongful death case can help you recover financially after losing a loved one.

In Indiana, the amount of damages you can recover from a wrongful death suit depends on your relationship with the deceased. the representative of the deceased victim can recover:

  • Funeral and burial expense
  • Medical expenses
  • Depending on your relationship with the deceased, you may also receive:
  • Costs of counseling for parents or minor siblings
  • Loss of love and companionship (capped at $300,000 in some cases)
  • Loss of future earnings

Again, Indiana has very strict laws about what damages the deceased person’s representative or estate can receive from a wrongful death lawsuit. No two cases are exactly the same. Our experienced Evansville personal injury attorneys can tell you how Indiana’s wrongful death statutes apply to your case, and will be honest about what you can expect in terms of compensation.
