Determining The Financial Fallout Of Your Loss
Put simply, the wrongful death claim exists to compensate surviving family members for the financial fallout from the loss of a loved one – a fallout that often spans a lifetime. While the lifelong emotional void left by your loved one can never be reduced to a dollar amount, you can still quantify certain aspects of what you have lost. For example, you may be able to recover monetary damages for:
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of future wages
- Loss of affection and companionship of a spouse
- Loss of a parent-child relationship
A wrongful death claim will also allow you to recover damages for the conscious pain and suffering your loved one suffered as a result of the accident. In cases involving extreme negligence or deliberate harm, you may be entitled to significant punitive damages designed to punish the wrongdoer.
