What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit is brought when someone’s death is caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party. Those who were dependent or were a beneficiary of the deceased may be able to file a wrongful death claim and may be entitled to compensation for their losses. 

In the event of a wrongful death, filing a claim may not be something that is a pressing matter for the surviving loved ones in the moment. Coping with death is hard as it is; however, if you do not file a wrongful death claim within a certain period of time, you and your family may risk losing your right to compensation for your losses. Therefore, it is important to get in touch with a wrongful death attorney as soon as you are able to, to avoid losing your right to justice and compensation.

Damages From a Wrongful Death Claim

When it comes to a wrongful death claim, there are generally three types of damages that may be available to the surviving loved ones of the victim, which are economic, non-economic, and punitive. 

Economic damages

Economic damages include the financial contributions that the victim would have provided if he or she didn’t die, which are:

  • Medical expenses connected to the death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of benefits, such as pension plans and medical coverage
  • Loss of inheritance 
  • The value of goods and services that the victim would have provided

Non-economic damages

Non-economic damages include subjective losses, which are:

  • Loss of care, protection, guidance, advice, training, nurturing, and more
  • Loss of love and companionship

Punitive damages

Punitive damages are awarded to punish the defendant for their misconduct. However, it is important to know that not every state allows punitive damages to be recovered in wrongful death claims.

Calculating damages in a wrongful death claim is extremely complex, therefore, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney on your side throughout this process.
