When a loved one’s life has tragically been cut short due to the irresponsible and flippant acts of another person, you should not be accountable! Not only is the cost of a funeral expensive, but you also deserve emotional damages for the pain you are currently suffering and will likely suffer into the future.
Some of the damages you can be awarded in a wrongful death suit include:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Mental pain and suffering
- Loss of support and services
- Loss of companionship and protection
- Punitive damages (in limited cases such as drunk driving accidents)
In addition, the estate of the deceased may additionally be entitled to recover the loss of net earnings that would have occurred over their natural lifespan, including interest, and medical and funeral expenses if they apply. While no amount of financial compensation will ever bring back the person you lost, recovering an award can help ease the burden.
