Types of Wrongful Death Damages

Wrongful death lawsuits involve a number of complex legal issues. The plaintiff must first prove that the defendant is liable for the decedent’s death as a result of negligent or intentional wrongdoing. Once liability is assessed, there are often complex legal issues regarding the appropriate level of compensation that should be awarded as damages.

The plaintiff in a wrongful death action may be entitled to receive compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of future income and benefits
  • Loss of future inheritance
  • Loss of parental guidance (if decedent has minor children)
  • Loss of spousal companionship, protection and care
  • Grief, sorrow and mental suffering of surviving spouse and next of kin
  • Pain and suffering of the decedent prior to death
  • Punitive damages (if defendant’s actions were intentional)

Act Quickly to Protect Your Rights

Wrongful death lawsuits have strict time limitations (called statutes of limitations) governing when a lawsuit can be filed. Accordingly, it is important to act quickly to protect your rights.
