This is also referred to as wrongful death. Spouses, domestic partners, children, parents, siblings, and grandparents can have a claim for wrongful death against the responsible parties. The types of damages that can be recovered depending on the relationship are: value of household services that would be provided by the decedent; financial support that the survivor(s) would have received; loss of companionship, affection, love, care, comfort, and society; loss of consortium (sexual relations) for the surviving spouse; and funeral and burial expenses. We have handled wrongful cases with great success and compensation for our clients. Because the loss of a loved one can completely alter the lives of the surviving family members, it is important to retain an experienced personal injury lawyer to recover the compensation you deserve.
