What types of damages are available?
When a loved one is killed by the actions of another, surviving family members face a multitude of emotional and financial challenges. If the other party is found liable, you may be entitled to certain kinds of compensatory damages. The most common types include:
- Medical expense payments. If the victim required medical assistance after the accident, those expenses remain even if the victim ultimately does not survive. The family is left with these expenses, and the liable party may be held responsible for them.
- Loss of income. In situations where the deceased party financially contributed to a household, death also represents a loss of ongoing income for the surviving family. This amount may be factored into a compensatory award.
- Funeral expenses. Surviving family members must pay for funeral and burial expenses for their deceased loved one. These costs can be significant, especially in situations where the deceased had no life insurance.
- Emotional pain and suffering. The loss of a loved one is extremely painful, particularly when the death occurs unexpectedly. While it is virtually impossible to quantify such pain, the responsible party may have to provide some level of financial compensation.
