The death of a loved one can be devastating, especially if the death was caused by negligence, intentional acts of another person (or company) or intentional acts. The legal term to describe these circumstances is wrongful death.
When a wrongful death occurs, victim’s families may be entitled to compensation for damages incurred and accountability.
Families of victims should be aware that they can potentially recover for damages such as:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship, care, and protection
- Loss of pension benefits
- Mental anguish (of the surviving spouse / family member(s))
