Wrongful Death Cases

Wrongful death is a claim against a person or entity that can be held liable for the death of a person.  Wrongful Death claims are brought by representatives of the estate of the decedent, usually a spouse or close family member.  Damages that may be available in a wrongful death lawsuit can include medical and funeral expenses; loss of the victim’s expected earnings between the time of the death and the expected retirement or death; loss of benefits such as pension plans and medical coverage; loss of inheritance; damages for mental anguish and pain and suffering; loss of care, protection, nurturing, and companionship to the survivors; and possibly a claim for punitive damages.
