Am I Able to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

You may be eligible for compensation if your loved one has passed due to another person’s negligence. Our injury lawyers will be able to provide you with the information you need on whether or not you may file a wrongful death claim.

Our personal injury law firm has decades of experience fighting for victims and their surviving family members. We have your back during this difficult time, doing whatever we can to help your claim succeed.

Damages in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

While no amount of money could replace your family member, a successful claim could replace the income the decedent earned and other benefits they brought to the home. It can also redirect the financial burdens you’re currently facing onto the person responsible for your loved one’s death.

Compensatory damages in a wrongful death claim could provide payment for:

  • Medical bills, including treatment or hospitalization
  • Loss of past wages and potential earnings before retirement age
  • Physical pain and suffering of the victim and their relatives
  • Loss of consortium, guidance, services, and companionship
  • Funeral expenses, including burial or cremation
  • Emotional distress to the victim and their family
  • Out-of-pocket costs related to the incident

Every wrongful death case is different. Available compensation can vary significantly based on the deceased’s age, earning potential, and financial contributions to dependents. In some cases, the court may award punitive damages to the family of a wrongful death victim as a punishment to the defendant or responsible party.
