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 after the death of a loved one. 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.
