Pursuing Damages for Wrongful Death

No amount of money will ever replace a beloved person lost in an accident. The untimely loss and immediate trauma can be physically and emotionally debilitating to the entire family. However, whenever the death of a person results from the negligence or wrongful act of another, the family of the deceased may file suit to recover damages from the person who caused it, or from any agent who is responsible. If the death is deemed to be the result of willful or gross negligence, punitive damages may also be recovered.

In wrongful death cases, when you lose a loved one, no matter what their age, you are entitled to financial compensation for the premature death and the impact of the loss of that person on your life. Court ordered compensation might include:

  • Pain and suffering, including loss of companionship and consortium
  • Physical support, including housework, and family support activities
  • Lost of present and future financial support, or inheritance from your loved one
  • Property damage/replacement of a vehicle if in a car accident
  • Expenses for your loss of income during a period of medical care of your loved one
  • Medical and funeral expenses
