wrongful death casesIf you’re pursuing a wrongful death claim due to the passing of a loved one, it’s important to know the two types of damages you can pursue: financial losses and the full value of the deceased’s life. Allow us to explain in depth:

Financial Losses

Whether your loved one’s death occurred in a split second or stemmed from a catastrophic injury, the financial obligations that falls in your lap can be crippling. A funeral can quickly add up to roughly $10,000+ and medical bills related to the injury can be extraordinarily high, especially if surgery was involved. It’s important to seek compensation for financial losses related to your loved one’s death so you can focus on grieving instead of how to pay massive bills. A wrongful death attorney will seek compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial costs

By pursuing compensation to cover your financial losses, you can replace worry with a plan so you don’t get buried in debt and frustration.

Full Value of the Deceased’s Life

If your loved one passed away, you must figure out how to pay bills and expenses without his/her financial contributions if he/she worked. This can add a serious strain on your life and ability to pay. By pursuing compensation that covers the full value of the deceased’s life, you can rest assured knowing that his/her income could still support you even if he/she is gone. Your wrongful death attorney will seek compensation for:

  • Lost wages
  • Employee benefits
  • Intangible aspects of life
