Compensation in Wrongful Death Claims
No death ever occurs in a vacuum. Someone is always left behind to grieve; whether that person is a spouse, a parent or a child. Wrongful death suits acknowledge the financial and emotional support that the deceased offered to his or her loved ones. The purpose of the suit is to seek damages from the defendant to assuage that loss.
Generally, wrongful death claims allow monetary compensation for:
- Funeral and medical expenses
- Loss of a parent’s guidance and training
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of services typically provided by the deceased
- Considerable pain and suffering by the deceased, etc.
