What Types of Damages Can Be Recovered?

Navigating life after the wrongful death of a loved one can be challenging. One does not often know what to do or where to start. It is likely that they are bombarded with many emotions as they see the bills piling up. A wrongful death suit allows surviving loved ones to hold negligent parties accountable and recover compensation for their damages.

Common wrongful death damages include:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical bills and other similar losses

Additionally, a loved one could seek punitive damages. This occurs when serious or malicious wrongdoings caused the death of the decedent. These damages are used to further punish the liable party.

It is difficult to accept that a loved one was lost in a fatal accident, and it is clear that no amount of money will bring them back; however, it is important to understand that surviving loved ones have rights. A wrongful death suit is a real opportunity to not only hold a negligent party accountable but also offset the financial losses caused by the loss of a loved one.
