Funeral Expenses and Wrongful Death Lawsuits


Funeral Expenses and Wrongful Death Lawsuits

When you lose a family member of loved one in a wrongful death incident, the unexpected financial burden of their death can compound the grief and pain you will naturally be experiencing. The imposition of these additional costs can take a toll on your long-term financial health.

Fortunately, a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party can offer some relief from the burden of a funeral, as well as medical expenses loved ones may have incurred in the last days of their lives. Damages in a wrongful death lawsuit typically cover a variety of costs associated with the death of a family member or loved one.

Damages you can seek in a wrongful death suit include:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Victim's expected future earnings
  • Loss of benefits
  • Damages for mental anguish
  • Loss of care, protection, and guidance
  • Loss of future inheritance
  • Loss of love and companionship
  • Punitive damages

Every state has limits on how late after the death you can file a wrongful death suit, and many have specific laws that apply to wrongful death cases. It is therefore critical that you find a lawyer with the experience and knowledge to thoroughly and carefully prepare your case before going to court.
