Damages claimed in a wrongful death case vary from situation to situation. It is common to claim damages directly incurred as a result of the injury and death: funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, loss of wages due to injury and death, and loss of other types of earning potential and services. These are the obvious damages that most people seem to be aware of. However, survivors of the deceased may not be aware that they may also be able to claim damages of a less tangible nature. For instance, you may be able to sue for loss of long-term support, pain and suffering, ongoing emotional trauma and stress, loss of companionship, and loss of instruction and guidance. An expert wrongful death lawyer can help you to understand your rights and options as you plan your claim.Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death suit can be filed by the spouse, children, parents, or personal representative of the deceased, and a personal representative can file on behalf of the beneficiaries.
