Compensation for Wrongful Death
When a family member has died, there is no amount of money that can replace your loss or properly compensate you. No settlement or verdict can rewind the tragic events that have unfolded. However, the costs associated with medical treatment and other expenses can leave you in an even worse position after the loss of a loved one.
In a wrongful death case, you may be entitled to the compensation for these expenses:
- Any medical expenses incurred after the accident
- Any out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the accident and wrongful death
- Burial and funeral expenses
- Loss of earnings of the decedent
- Present and future financial losses
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
A wrongful death can occur in many ways. Medical malpractice resulting in wrongful death; the misdiagnosis of a disease such as cancer; an SUV defect or rollover; defective machinery; a car and truck accident; or an unsafe product can all cause fatal injuries. Even when death does not occur in these and other accidents, victims can suffer serious injuries with lasting complications.
