Who can recover damages for wrongful death?

When a person dies as the result of gross negligence, the next of kin and estate may file a civil lawsuit to recover economic and noneconomic damages. Next of kin are family members, such as spouse, domestic partner, children, parents, or siblings. A surviving spouse or partner has the separate right to recover damages for loss of consortium, for having lost a life partner.

It is important to act promptly if you believe the death of your loved one was caused by someone's gross negligence. The statute of limitations (time limit to file a civil suit) can be as short as 6 months in wrongful death cases. You also run the risk of losing evidence in the case if you wait too long.

    “John, Sandy, & their amazing team took me from the possibility of getting nothing, to a settlement I never dreamed possible.”
    A letter of appreciation to John and his Team, I was in a bad car accident; I was rear-ended so hard it took two tow trucks to pull the vehicles apart. I was referred to John Fetto by my healthcare professional. I was worried if I could even get compensation because I had a long history of neck and back problems. I ended up needing physical therapy, multiple Epidural Steroid Injections in my neck, and finally surgery to fuse 3 vertebrae. After going through the deposition and medical examination requested by the other side, the opposing insurance company did not want to pay anything because of my prior history. John would have none of that and he began to prepare for court. He assembled an amazing team to fight on my behalf. Kenia collected and assembled years of my medical history. Russell produced documents, coordinated zoom meetings, and created an amazing visual presentation to present in court. John, knowing I was willing to go to court, called in Sandy Cipinko, an excellent trial attorney. The two of them worked flawlessly together each handling different aspects of the case. John is a true professional. John, Sandy, and their amazing team took me from the possibility of getting nothing, to a settlement I never dreamed possible. This shows you that, even with an extensive medical history, you can still come out a winner with John and his team. I will always be grateful to them. Sincerely, Rose

    “Attorney Fetto and his staff were professional, forthright and very helpful!”
    I have had the pleasure of interacting with Mr. Fetto and his staff on a personal injury auto accident that had transpired several years ago. He has been professional, forthright and very helpful in attaining justice because the person who T-boned me had the same insurance company as myself. So, AAA did not wish to sue themselves and I got stuck with a lot of expense i.e. depreciation for my automobile as they did not total it, put the accident on my driving record when I had witnesses that said that it was not my fault, neck injury, etc., etc., John has been on top of everything, is compassionate and caring along with knowing the law and I trust him. I would recommend his services to anyone seeking a lawyer for personal injury as he is the best.
