After You Have Lost Someone You Love
First thing, we want to express our condolences. It is never easy to lose someone you love, especially when that person’s life was brought short by someone else’s negligence. It is important to take time to mourn your losses and to recover emotionally. It is also important to protect your family’s financial interests going forward. Although a lawsuit is a difficult thing to consider during an already difficult time, for many families, the compensation earned in a wrongful death case is the single factor keeping them from financial ruin. When the deceased was the primary breadwinner, it can leave a family without means. In addition, the funeral expenses, medical bills and other expenses are added to the already difficult financial reality.

Damage Awards For Wrongful Death Claims
The family of wrongful death victims can obtain compensation for damages that include:
- Loss of income: We fight to get our clients full compensation for all of the income the deceased likely would have earned in their lifetime. This includes calculations for expected lifespan, earning potential and inflation.
- Funeral and burial expenses: These are very real expenses that you should not have to pay for yourself. The person responsible for this tragedy should shoulder the burden of these expenses.
- Loss of companionship: There is no price tag to put on the love and companionship you have lost, but we can often obtain compensation for our clients for these substantial losses.
- Pain and suffering, and medical expenses: If the wrongful death victim was in the hospital and suffering before they died, we can obtain compensation for these losses and expenses.
