Potential Compensation

In wrongful death cases, it may be possible to collect damages beyond the costs associated with medical care, funeral preparations, and other immediate expenses.  It may also be possible to obtain compensation for loss of companionship, support, and future wages.  The wrongful death lawyers with our practice will be able to establish liability and identify all possible losses that are grounds for compensation.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases

A wrongful death claim can be filed on behalf of anyone whose death can be attributed to someone else’s negligence, whether it resulted from an auto accidentmedical malpracticea slip-and-fall accident, or some other catastrophic event. Wrongful death actions can only be taken by those with a legal claim to compensation, such as spouses, children, beneficiaries, and dependents.  It should be noted that a wrongful death claim is a civil claim made irrespective of whatever criminal charges may be filed against the defendant; in civil cases, the court is ruling upon whether to award compensation to the plaintiff, not whether to punish the defendant with time in jail. If the defendant’s actions were egregiously negligent, it might be possible to recover punitive damages in addition to compensation for actual losses.
