There is nothing more tragic than a wrongful death. A loss of this kind can have catastrophic emotional and financial consequences for the surviving members of the family. Besides the obvious loss of the loved one, there could be a substantial loss of income that would affect all the other members of the family.
In a wrongful death suit, the spouse, children, siblings, and parents of the deceased may recover monetary compensation for their economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include the victim’s earning capacity for a projected lifespan, services performed by the victim that must now be performed by someone else, and any gifts that the victim would likely have given to the survivor had the decedent been alive. Recoverable non-economic damages include the loss of the victim’s companionship, advice and moral support, love, and sexual relations between married spouses.
