A Perspective on Wrongful Death Claims


A Perspective on Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death claims can be a bit confounding to some people. People often bring up issues like the issue of how much is a life worth or even arguing over who should get to make a wrongful death claim.

We’ve looked at one of these issues in a previous article but from the perspective of what the laws say about it. In today’s article, we’ll look at a wrongful death claim through the perspective of someone who has directly experienced it.

Carl Hessler, Jr. of the ReporterOnline.com has recently written an article that describes Eric Holtzman’s firsthand experience of a wrongful death claim that was filed for his brother’s death.

Wrongful Death Claim

Eric’s brother was gunned down by a neighbor of their parents, Paul J. Bellina. Eric is now having to relive his original trauma at the murder of his brother in the wrongful death lawsuit that is brought upon Bellina.

It was a little surreal,” said Holtzmen in Hessler’s article. “Never in my entire life did I think I was going to be dealing with a situation where anybody I knew was murdered, let alone my brother. It’s still unbelievable.”

The Verdict of the Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The verdict of the wrongful death lawsuit will largely depend on how Bellina’s parole hearings go.

“The feeling is that if he does get out of prison that the money that he owes the estate through the legal proceedings is money that is donated to a charity and will be put to good use,” Holtzman said in Hessler’s article.

There is already a previously established charity set up in the name of his brother as a scholarship for those who study special education.
