Types of Damages for Wrongful Death | Romanucci & Blandin

There are many different types of damages that you can apply for in a wrongful death claim. Each state varies in the types of damages that you are eligible for. In most cases, the types of damages do not depend on the cause of wrongful death suit. Most often, they depend on the financial loss that the death caused. When you file for a wrongful death suit, you may be eligible for compensation for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of future inheritance
  • Loss of parental guidance if the decedent has children who are minors
  • Loss of spousal companionship
  • Loss of the decedents benefits
  • Loss of the decedents future income
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering of the decedent if there was an injury before their death
  • Pain and suffering of the survivors from losing a loved one
  • Punitive damages if the defendants actions were deliberate or hateful

How to Determine Wrongful Death Damages

You cannot put a price on what a lost life has cost you. In wrongful death cases, there are various factors that are considered when a judge or jury calculates what amount of damages will be awarded. They take into consideration:

  • Decedent’s life expectancy
  • Past earnings
  • Potential future earnings
  • Status of the decedent’s health before the accident
  • The decedent’s contribution to the home

Your lawyer will handle your case and present it to help you get the most compensation possible for the loss you have suffered. Your financial burden can be eased by choosing RB Law’s wrongful death attorneys who have vast experience handling wrongful death cases for our clients.
