Compensation in a Wrongful Death Claim
You May Be Eligible to Receive MONEY AND OTHER BENEFITS
When you lose a family member in a wrongful death, you may be entitled to receive money and other benefits. This compensation might cover costs such as medical bills, loss of income and funeral expenses.
You also may be able to receive compensation for emotional trauma that you and other family members may have suffered, as well as pain and suffering that your loved one experienced. You may even be eligible for "punitive damages," which are meant to punish the person who was responsible for your loved one's death.
Determining compensation in a wrongful death claim can be complicated — especially when you're trying to put a dollar figure on things like pain and suffering. At Peake & Fowler Law Firm, P.A., an experienced attorney can help determine the amount of compensation you deserve for the wrongful death. Contact us today to discuss your situation. We are ready to answer your questions.
There are many factors used to determine compensation. A court may ask the following questions:
- How dependent were you on the person who died?
- How much money was the person who died likely to earn if he or she would have lived?
- How long would the person who died likely have lived if he or she did not die due to someone's negligence?
- What was the nature of the relationship between you and the person who died?
