Providing Clients Help with the Loss of a Loved One
When you lose a loved one because of another person or corporation’s actions, Nevada law entitles individuals to sue on the deceased person’s behalf. This is otherwise known as a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased person’s estate.
If you are the Trustee, Executor or the Personal Representative of an individual who dies because of someone’s carelessness or intentional actions, it is within your rights and responsibilities to help all affected recover from this terrible situation. Holding the responsible person or company responsible is a very effective way to improve the situation.

What a Wrongful Death Action Does
When you sue for wrongful death, you are asking the court to make the situation better. The court then looks for the best method to help those that were left behind. This means of help is almost always in the form of money (otherwise known as damages).
Under Nevada law, wrongful death action can bring any of the following forms of compensation for the person’s loss:
- Loss of the deceased person’s love, care, support, protection, assistance, comfort, affection and moral support.
- Loss of the financial support that would have been received.
- Loss of a romantic companionship for the decedent’s spouse.
- Burial and funeral expenses.
