What Is A Wrongful Death Case?
A wrongful death lawsuit is meant to provide you with relief (monetary compensation) for the emotional anguish and economic hardship you are experiencing. We can help you through this difficult time and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
A Wrongful Death May Result in Many Forms of Compensation
Family members may be awarded compensation for the mental anguish and economic loss they experience as the result of the wrongful death of a loved one. Depending upon state laws, damages may be awarded in wrongful death cases for the following:
- Direct expenses such as medical bills and funeral costs
- Loss of benefits, including pension, retirement and medical insurance the victim would have received
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of companionship, support, and love
The age, health, past earnings, and personal expenses of the victim are typically taken into consideration when determining the amount of compensation awarded.
Wrongful Death Cases Have Statutes of Limitations
The statute of limitations to initiate a wrongful death lawsuit is generally one to two years following the family member’s death. If you have experienced the wrongful death of a loved one due to the negligent actions of another, it is important to contact a Gerling Law attorney as soon as possible.
