If a murder takes place, we depend on police and prosecutors to investigate and arrest the perpetrators of these vile acts. We expect them to seek justice for society by punishing the killer. But what about the rights of the surviving family? What opportunities exist for bereaved family members to seek full justice and compensation through civil litigation remedies?
The loss of a loved one is a nightmare for family members who are left to grieve. A senseless act like murder will likely cause a family to wonder why it happened. How could it happen? Justice is often only thought to be received through the criminal justice system, but justice for the family may include a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator and any other responsible parties such as property owners.
