Compensation in Wrongful Death Claims
A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit you have a right to file against a party who is at-fault for a family member’s death. Compensation in wrongful death claims typically includes lost wages, benefits, and financial support the deceased family member would have earned.
The settlement may also cover medical expenses related to the family member’s condition or injuries prior to death, as well as funeral and burial expenses and compensation for pain, suffering, and loss of companionship. In some settlements, the family may also receive punitive damages. Lori Murray will help you understand the specific settlement for which your family may qualify and fight to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
