The loss of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences. When that loss did not have to happen, it is a tragedy. A tragedy that immediately and permanently affects the lives of the decedent’s spouse, children and other family members. Our law protects families from the hardships caused by the death of a person because of the negligence or misdeeds of another person or entity. This is called a wrongful death claim.
Generally, the immediate family members (spouses, children and parents) of a wrongful death decedent can recover damages for the loss of their family member. Recoverable damages may include reimbursement for:
- medical expenses incurred as a result of the negligence;
- any loss of future income of the decedent;
- property damage, if any;
- the value of any future services normally provided to you by the person who has died;
- loss of the care, comfort, and companionship of the deceased;
- punitive damages if there was intentional misconduct.
