Losses You Can Recover in a Wrongful Death Case
We know that there is no truly sufficient number that can make up for the loss of a loved one. That is why the compassionate attorneys at Petrov Law Firm want to help you maximize your settlement in the aftermath of a traumatic loss. The money can help you to recover from the financial losses that frequently accompany the sudden death of a loved one. Here are some things you should be compensated for:
- Directly-related expenses – The cost of the funeral, burial, and any medical bills connected to your loss should all be included in the settlement.
- Loss of financial support – This is especially necessary if the family member you have lost was the primary breadwinner. You need to receive compensation for all future earnings that are now lost.
- Compensation for loss of emotional support – You can’t put a price tag on everything your family has lost, but you should still be compensated. This is especially true if any family members suffered the trauma of being an eyewitness to the tragic death.
- Punitive damages – While these damages are paid to you, they are designed to keep anyone else from having to suffer the same loss. Punitive damages punish the offending individual or company, so they are motivated to change their practices that led to the wrongful death.
And there may be additional damages for intangible losses or property damage associated with your case.
