WRONGFUL DEATH COMPENSATION: ASSESSING A TREMENDOUS LOSS

To determine the amount of compensation a survivor deserves, the law looks at several basic factors: • Economic Loss - Loss of Future Earnings: Working with an expert economist, we can determine how much the deceased individual would have made had he or she worked to retirement. In addition, a spouse can make a claim for services the decedent would have performed – things like helping around the house.

• Guidance to Children: If the deceased individual was a parent, the settlement can include compensation for the intellectual, moral and physical guidance that the children will have lost. 
• Burial and Medical Expenses: The cost of burial plus any medical expenses incurred between the accident and the time of death.
• Pain and Suffering: This refers not to the grief of the survivors, but to any pain experienced by the deceased individual before dying. For example, if he or she was trapped inside a burning vehicle during a fatal car accident, that suffering would warrant compensation.
