What Damages Can I Recover from a Wrongful Death Claim?

Although no amount of compensation can truly compensate for the loss of a loved one, there are several damages that are available to survivors of a wrongful death victim.

A claim for wrongful death may include compensation for the following:

  • Reimbursement for all medical expenses incurred as a result of the negligence
  • Reimbursement for the loss of any future income
  • Reimbursement for property damage, if applicable
  • Reimbursement for any future services normally provided to you by the person who has died
  • Reimbursement for loss of consortium, meaning a spouse’s right to the companionship, help and affection from the person who has died
  • Reimbursement for any punitive damages if the negligence was found to be criminal

Every state has a “statute of limitations” (the amount of time allotted to file a claim for negligence). You must protect your family’s rights by making sure that the negligent party is held accountable for your loss.

Although it is extremely hard, it is crucial that you preserve any supporting evidence and file your claim within the legal time limits. A New Jersey wrongful death attorney from Levinson Axelrod, P.A. can help with this process.

Causes of Wrongful Death

There is a variety of possible ways that a person can suffer an untimely demise. Some of the causes include:

  • Car crashes
  • Truck collisions
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • On-the-job trauma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Defective product injuries
  • Inadequate security to prevent violence
  • Property owner negligence
  • Law enforcement wrongdoing
  • Occupational disease
  • Defective and dangerous drugs

Unfortunately, nearly any accident can lead to the early, unwarranted death of an individual. If you believe another party was responsible for your loved one’s death, you may have a claim for wrongful death.

As traumatizing as this time may be, the party responsible for your loved one’s death should be held responsible for the pain, suffering and losses you have to endure.
