Compensation in a Wrongful Death Case
You deserve compensation: Choose an experienced wrongful death attorney
No amount of money can erase the grief family members feel when they lose a loved one due to negligence. Compensation in a wrongful death case, however, can help cover very real expenses that accumulate. While every case is different, the following are some damages you may be entitled to in a wrongful death case:
- Medical expenses related to the injury
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of income, depending on the age and household status of the person who died
- Pain and suffering (experienced by the deceased)
- Emotional trauma of the surviving family members
In some cases, punitive damages may be part of the case. These are damages meant to punish a negligent individual or party. While rare, punitive damages may apply in cases of extreme disregard for human life or safety.
