How do You Calculate a Wrongful Death Claim?

2022-10-31 How do you calculate a wrongful death claim

A wrongful death claim can be filed by a victim’s family when their death was due to the negligence of another person, product, or a business. The survivors can be compensated for the lost wages from the victim, as well as other damages.

Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim

A survivor of a victim in a wrongful death claim can seek damages for:

  • Loss of the victim’s expected earnings

  • Medical and funeral expenses

  • Loss of benefits

  • The value of the services provided by the deceased, for instance, the value of cooking and cleaning the home and childcare for a stay-at-home parent

  • Mental anguish

  • Loss of companionship

  • Loss of consortium, or the loss of the benefits of a family relationship

Some of these damages are economic, or tangible. Things like lost earnings and other expenses have a dollar amount that is included in the claim. The non-economic damages, or less tangible items, are things like mental anguish and loss of companionship. While these don’t necessarily have a standardized price tag attached, they can sometimes be worth more than economic damages.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
