Wrongful death cases are different from personal injury claims in terms of the kind of compensation that may be sought. Personal injury claims seek compensation for the losses suffered by the injured person, like pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost income. In addition to those losses, wrongful death claims can also seek compensation for the following:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- The lost income from the decedent’s wages and other benefits
- The value of the services the decedent provided to their family
- The value of the lost companionship for surviving family members
- The value of the comfort and guidance to surviving family members
When you lose a loved one, there are life-long consequences for the surviving family members. A seasoned wrongful death attorney can make sure that your family gets the care and compensation you deserve.
