Coping with the death of a loved one is never easy. When their death was caused by someone else’s negligence, it is even more difficult to accept. We can provide compassionate guidance to your family while we learn what your loved one provided both financially and emotionally.
At Walsh & Gaertner, our lawyers recognize that monetary compensation will never make up for your loss. However, it can ease the financial strain that comes with planning a funeral and adjusting to your changed circumstances. Call our St. Paul office today at 651-968-8028 and let us help you as you begin to move forward.
How To File A Claim In Minnesota
In Minnesota, the spouse, children, siblings, parents and grandparents of the person who died are eligible to bring a wrongful death claim. One person is appointed by the court as the trustee for the purposes of bringing forward the wrongful death claim on behalf of the entire family. Families can recover damages for several factors, including:
- Loss of earnings
- Absence of services and aid
- Aid, comfort, society and companionship
We will pursue the at-fault parties while you focus on more personal matters. While the other party’s insurance company will begin investigating the case, we will launch an investigation of our own to put you and your family on a level playing field.
