Our Norfolk attorney, Paul Hernandez, explains several of the intricacies surrounding a wrongful death claim if you and the deceased are not married. If you tragically lose your boyfriend or girlfriend due to another’s negligence, filing a claim for damages may be the last thing on your mind. While monetary compensation can’t help the grieving you’re undergoing, it can help provide for you and your family in the future.
If you lose your boyfriend or girlfriend, there may not be any compensation that you can claim. It depends on the state you live in and what a judge decides.
In this video, Mr. Hernandez describes a case where they couldn’t get any financial compensation for the girlfriend, but they could for her child because the deceased was the child’s father.
