Losing a loved one is difficult. When your loved one’s death is due to the wrong doing or negligence of another, your pain can be almost impossible to bear. In such tragic situations, you want to have a proven and compassionate attorney helping you obtain just compensation. While money alone cannot make up for all that you have lost, at least it can relieve your financial concerns and provide a sense of closure.
Factors determining the amount of compensation awarded in wrongful death cases:
- The decedent’s income
- The degree to which family members were dependent financially on the decedent
- Expenses incurred by the decedent’s survivors, such as medical costs and funeral expenses
