Learning About Wrongful Death Damages

The untimely loss of a loved one can be devastating. The pain and suffering become more painful and long lasting. You will have medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship to worry about. If the death of your loved one was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another party, you can file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit to recover your damages.

What Are Wrongful Death Damages?
Wrongful Death

The term damages are used by wrongful death lawyers to refer to a sum of money claimed or awarded to the individual who has filed a claim or lawsuit for compensation of the death of his or her loved one. Wrongful death damages are awarded to the loved ones of deceased accident victims for the financial and emotional losses the family members have suffered as a result of the death.

The insurance company of the negligent or reckless party generally pays the damages after a settlement has been reached or the lawsuit goes to trial.

2 Common Types of Wrongful Death Claims

The two most common types of wrongful death claims are general wrongful death claims and survivor wrongful death claims.

– General wrongful death claims: The beneficiaries of the deceased individual generally claim this type of wrongful death claim. Beneficiaries may include the victim’s spouse, children, and parents. This type of death claim provides monetary compensation to the people who were financially dependent on the deceased individual.

– Survivor wrongful death claims: This type of wrongful death claim is typically brought when a victim does not have a spouse, children or any other dependent. A court usually appoints a representative of the deceased’s estate to seek claims on behalf of the estate. This type of wrongful death claim is aimed at bringing justice for the wrongful death of the decedent.

3 Types of Wrongful Death Damages

There are different types of wrongful death damages available. Depending on the circumstances of the death, you may claim the following three types of wrongful death claims:

  1. Economic damages – losses that have exact monetary value, such as medical bills.
  2. Non-economic damages – damages that do no have an exact monetary value, such as pain and suffering.
  3. Punitive damages
