Losing a loved one unexpectedly can be particularly painful. In addition to dealing with grief, shock and emotional distress, if the death was caused wrongfully or was accidental, the situation can also bring additional pain, heartache and anger.
When a loved one is lost too soon, a feeling of emptiness can consume survivors. A spouse or partner may wonder how he or she will live out their golden years. A parent may wish he or she had passed before the child. Loved ones may struggle with coping with never being able to say goodbye.
How Common Are Wrongful Deaths?
Sadly, in 2014 alone, there were more than 135,000 unintentional deaths nationwide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Financial Burdens Associated With Wrongful Deaths

This is particularly true if your spouse or partner died, and if the deceased was the sole provider for your household. You are likely left handling medical bills, funeral expenses and loss of income to provide for dependents such as children.
Other Ways Wrongful Death Impacts Your Life
In addition to financial burdens, following the wrongful death of a loved one you may suffer from loss of love and affection, loss of companionship, emotional distress, personal stress, depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions. Children may need extra support and grief counseling.
