When you have lost a family member, the loss is irreplaceable. Soon thereafter, the reality of the financial loss associated with your family member's loss will set in. If you lost a wage-earning family member or if the medical expenses leading up to the death were considerable, you may have a claim to replace these financial losses.
Wrongful death compensation is important so families can pay the mortgage and monthly bills as well as funeral and burial expenses. You may also need compensation for the loss of the victim's future income, benefits and other contributions to the household.

Your Loved One’s Life Mattered
In addition to recovering the necessary compensation for your family to move forward, a wrongful death suit can hold negligent parties accountable for the damage they have caused. In some situations, filing a lawsuit in Wisconsin is not only a way of obtaining compensation but is also a way of bringing attention to a dangerous problem.
Some people feel that filing a wrongful death suit is a way of getting justice for their loved one’s accident. It may help you feel a sense of closure to hold the responsible party liable for the fatal injury which led to your loved one's death.
