While monetary compensation cannot replace a loved one, it can help alleviate many of the day-to-day problems confronted by families of a wrongful death victim.
Nothing affects a family more than the unexpected death of a father, mother, child or other relative. The void left by this sudden death can seem impossible to fill. If one of your family members was killed in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, you deserve compensation for your emotional and financial losses.
While compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit cannot replace what you have lost, it can provide you with a much-needed sense of justice. Furthermore, this compensation can alleviate some of your family’s financial worries.
Types of Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death is when a person’s negligent, reckless or careless actions cause the death of another. This responsible party may be liable for the financial losses of the victim’s family. Some of the common types of wrongful death cases include:
Some of the damages that may be able to be recovered in a wrongful death case include expenses related to the death, loss of earnings the person would have provided their family, loss of benefits they would have received, and possibly punitive damages.
