Victim of wrongful
death? Consult an attorney through our referral service.
The goal of a wrongful death case is to compensate the survivors and beneficiaries for their loss.
The following types of damages are considered in a wrongful death case:
1. Sorrow, mental anguish which includes loss of companionship, comfort and guidance;
2. The expected loss in income of the person who died;
3. The expected loss of services, protection, care, and/or assistance which the person who died provided to the survivors/beneficiaries;
4. Expenses for the care, treatment, and hospitalization of the person who died related to the injury resulting in death.
In times of grief it is obviously difficult for family members
to understand the importance of a prompt investigation of the
circumstances of the death, preservation of evidence and identification
of responsible parties.
