What Damages Are Available in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
There are two kinds of damages recoverable from a wrongful death situation. The first is damages recovered on behalf of the deceased person’s estate by his or her personal representative. These damages can cover special damages, exemplary damages, or punitive damages that the person would have recovered if he or she lived for things such as medical expenses. These damages are liable to any debts owed by the deceased person unless specifically exempted by law.
The other kind of damages recoverable from a wrongful death case are for a heir’s grief, sorrow, loss of probable support, companionship, society, comfort, and consortium. The heir can also recover damages for pain, suffering, and disfigurement of the deceased person. None of these damages are liable to debts incurred by the deceased person or his or her estate. Oronoz and Ericsson Injury Lawyers measures both your losses and the losses of your loved one’s estate to determine the maximum payout, and we fight for this amount in court if necessary.
