What Are Wrongful Death Damages?
Damages in a wrongful death suit are primarily financial but can also include punitive damages. The primary damages covered in a wrongful death settlement include:
- Compensation for medical treatment, pain and suffering of the deceased individual leading up to their death
- Funeral/burial expenses following the individual's death
- Compensation for surviving family members including: lost earnings, loss of companionship or consortium, etc.
How Do You Prove Wrongful Death?
In order to win a wrongful death claim you must be able to prove the following:
- The defendant owed a "duty of care" to the deceased individual (i.e. they had a responsibility to obey certain laws or take certain steps to prevent harm coming to the individual)
- The defendant breached that duty of care by breaking those laws or failing to take the necessary steps
- The defendant's breach led directly to the individual's death
